About IOR

Illusion Or Reality was created merely as a convenience for my personal use and help me keep my web authoring skills (beginners level) current and no other reason. Computers have been a hobby for a long time now going back to the era of the COCo, Comodore, and early desktops. Until they came along it was electronics that had always fascinated me, so it was just more of the same I guess.  Anything electrical, mechanical or involving physics in any way would probably be more accurate. Over the years  I’ve worked as everything from a mechanic and  machinist to running power generation facilities.

I like to classify myself as a Veteran-American and I’m also a Vietnam Veteran. I served with The 815th Bn 102nd CS at Camp Dillard in the Central Highlands. While in country I did EOD work and managed a quarry operation prepping and blasting rock being used to build the QL-20 highway. The long story short is that I lived through it and it’s now part of history.

So there you have it, I just do this kind of stuff to help me keep my gray-matter functional. It’s a challenge to stay ahead of technology these days so anything you can do to stay ahead of the curve is a good thing.  Right?
