My name is Frank and I live in Adelaide, South Australia. I started following Leo back in the 90s when our pay-TV service had call for help and the screen savers.
Later I discovered the tech guy podcast and I downloaded every single one of them and I have caught up now.
My first PC was a Tandy cat 100. Then I got an Amiga 500, Amiga 1200, and an Amiga 2000. After that I had a 286, 386, 486 etc.
Despite being legally blind, It was because of Leo, that I built most of my PCs and even started a business selling PC parts and assembling PCs for people.
In the past I have worked on a helpdesk and I am now the helpdesk for my family and friends on everything from Windows to iPhone to android you name it.
Then, I went a few years without Leo until I discovered the TWIT network i listen to Security now, iOS today, Mac Break weekly, TWIT, Smart Tech Today and The Tech Guy Show.
I am now 50. About 30 years ago I did some basic programming courses at college. I completed certificates in C, Visual Basic, and even COBOL.
I would like to try some swift programming. So, I’m wondering if there is anybody out there who is like me, legally blind or even completely blind, who would be willing to correspond with me via email and help me get started with Swift?
So, @leo, you have been and still are a huge influence on my life. I have bought many products because of you and I have supported many of your sponsors because I appreciate everything you do and have done to help me and other people.
You are freaking AWESOME and dont let anybody else tell you otherwise.
Oh, by the way, you can’t retire because I don’t know what I would do during the day without having YOU to listen to.
Have a great day.
Your Biggest fan.
