Ariel moved to New Mexico in 2004 after eight years of honorable service in the U.S. Navy. Throughout her life, Ariel has tinkered with a wide variety of home and personal computer systems (now considered retrocomputer systems) ranging from the Apple II to the TRS-80 Model 100 almost since learning to read.
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. Most of the time, the problems are caused by misbehaving Windows computers.
From October 2009 to February 2015, I was a moderator at Fur Affinity Forums (FAF), where I went by the name ArielMT. Between January and August 2011, I was also a support administrator at Fur Affinity (FA), and like FAF I went by the same name, ArielMT. FAF split from FA in September 2015, moved to Phoenix.Corvidae.Org, and renamed itself to Phoenixed Forums. I became a moderator in October 2015, stepped down in February 2016, and rejoined the moderator team in April 2016.
