 So Mary Emma got tagged by Kelly, Mary Emma tags me …

I’ve been tagged by Kelly, at Taxgirl, in this 7 Random Facts meme.  What are 7 random facts my readers would like to know about me, possibly in relation to my Home Biz Notes blog and my background for writing it? Source: 7 Random Facts About Home Biz Notes & Mary Emma

Now seven random facts about me (and I’m going to try to relate them to this blog):

  1. I’ve been using e-mail since 1988 (ish) my first account was on my college UNIX mainframe, pre-Eudora so all command line … no wussy GUI for me!
  2. My first computer was an Apple IIe (the family’s actually)…my second was a Mac SE with a 20 meg HD
  3. I had a notch cutter for 5 1/4 floppies (for said Apple IIe)
  4. I know how to set up an AppleTalk network
  5. I seem to always have more than one computer
  6. I write with fountain pens
  7. I hate fax machines

Okay now the fun tagging some other suckers, er, bloggers …

  1. Laura @ CFS Squared
  2. Hsein @ Eye on DNA
  3. Eric @ Commonsense PR
  4. Glen @ LifeDev
  5. Jim @ Genuine
  6. Mark @ his own blog
  7. Lloyd @ Fools Wisdom

I guess there are rules … but you know them by now (write your things, tag seven other people, let them know, blah, blah, blah).

    Thanks for the invite, I have been tagged many times, but I don’t do ‘em. A healthy meme carries itself ;-)

    It was only in May that I saw 8 Random Facts and back in December it was Five Things You Don’t Know About Me meme

    No worries Lloyd, this one is like Plague. It never dies!

    Thanks, Tris, for participating. Even though some of these seem to go round and round with a few variations, they can be fun. But I can understand, too, when some people simply get too busy to get involved. I enjoyed reading your 7 Random Facts. I didn’t know they had e-mail in 1988. Although we’ve had a computer since the first Tandy came out…at least it was an early Tandy.
