Response to There was a fellow

 

Yes, I'm afraid I was one of those nerdy kids too. Not in the 'prodigy' class ofcourse- but I was obsessed with radio and electronics as a kid. I wasn't macho or athletic so I spend my time at home tinkering in our basement- spending countless hours restoring old radio gear (much of it WW-II military surplus) for use on ham radio. My school notebook bulged with radio magazines and schematics of circuits I wanted to try as soon as I could get home- if only damn school wasn't wasting my time! But at least my obsession lead into a career which has worked out well for me suiting both my interests and my reclusive personality. But I'm still uncomfortable in social situations except when with people whom I share common interests- and on the net in forums like this.
