Ariel Millennium Thornton

Moved to New Mexico in 2004 after eight years of honorable service in the U.S. Navy. Has tinkered with a wide variety of home and personal computer systems ranging from the Apple II to the TRS-80 Model 100 almost since learning to read, and continuing to tinker today.  Favorite PC: the Commodore 64.  PCs used daily: modern IBM compatibles with a Unix-based OS and a Debian-based OS.

What I Do

I work tech support and PC repair for a small ISP in rural New Mexico. I haven't answered the dreaded cupholder call yet, but I've answered some doozies that come close. I've been told that I'm so skilled and courteous that if I were a doctor, most of my customers would trust me implicitly. Lies, I'm sure.

From October 2009 to February 2015, I was made a moderator at Fur Affinity Forums (FAF), where I went by the same name as I do here, ArielMT. From January to August 2011, I was a support administrator at Fur Affinity (FA), and I go by the same name there as here. FAF split from FA in September 2015, moved to Phoenix.Corvidae.Org, and renamed itself to Phoenixed Forums. I was made a moderator in October 2015, stepped down in February 2016, and rejoined the moderator team in April 2016.
