Welcome To FidoSysop’s Tiny Little Piece Of Cyberspace. I’m a retired used car dealer and ASE certified mechanic, turned self educated Internet guru hanging out in cyberspace keeping up with tech.
Never being bashful I often shoot from the hip and say just what is on my mind without sugar-coating it. One thing i don’t do is lie or beat around the bush about anything or anyone.
I also have a very outgoing personality and frequently use a few colorful metaphors to describe something or someone.
As for my political views, I’m a strong Donald J Trump supporter. Mr. Trump had done a good job so far this term (in my humble opinion) and has announced running for a second. Corporations and Jobs are coming back to America. Trump Tax Reform was a boost in many American workers paychecks. Though $1000 was crumbs to some
As a hobbyist i started Doc’s Place computer bulletin board system (BBS) in 1991 that is the longest running Wildcat system of it’s kind in the USA!
That old BBS still exists today after 27 years of providing Fidonet Messaging Access to the public. Though the dial-up lines have been disconnected since around 1998.
Being a system operator (SysOp) as it was called back in the disk operating system days was a great way to learn about computers and communicating online. Those were fun times before the net took over. Check out our BBS Documentary Videos to learn more.
Our Net 3603 Sysop meetings were a blast. Monthly hangouts as a group shooting the breeze over lunch. Where to download the latest Desqview & QEMM etc.

My work background was repairing and selling used cars. Received my dealer license back in 1973. In 1999 i was the 1st Tampa Bay area car dealer to sell automobiles on eBay. That was some experience, good at first, but scams and fraud started chipping away at the founders cornerstone of trust. Auction fraud was overlooked as management stuffed their pockets full of cash, denying fraud existed!
