Re: [OT] Introductions
I'm Dan... Well, that didn't take a lot to figure out, from my name. And surprise, surprise, I went to Texas A&M. I work for Verizon (no I can't fix your DSL or FIOS). I'm 31 years old and one of those annoying guys that knows enough to tick off the IT department by building rogue databases.
I'm from Texas. Born in Texas... And, God willing, I'll die in Texas. I'm probably one of the lightest skinned people you'll ever meet that was born with a hispanic last name. Though, I've lived up and down the I-35 Corridor, spending most of my time in the Corpus Christi area and the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. I've been married now for three and a half years to a woman that wasn't born in Texas, but by God she got here as fast as she could.
I've been crunching since 2001... Dang, has it been that long? And I've got many reasons for crunching... It is partially in memory of my maternal grandmother Idolina Marie Govella, maternal grandfather Daniel Treviño Govella, and paternal grandfather Manuel Luera.
And, to be honest, it is also for future self-preservation. With three grandparents having died of various forms of cancer, my odds aren't what you'd exactly call stellar. So, I'm doing what I can now. So, if I do get something... Well, at least I've been fighting it my entire life... And buddy, I'm going down swinging.
