A Sick Life
...Where did you want to be today?

Feb 2006... K, so here's why I really don't write anything here. Who cares? You think that I think anyone cares? Anyway, for test and demo purposes I've been using blog software on my server here and anything new that at one time would have gone here goes there instead. I'll have this posted that both top and bottom of this page. Just about anything that is on THIS page is also copied over there. Let me know if any of it seems broke. All 2 of you that may have accidently read this. http://blogs.wolfcrews.com/wolfanger

Well here's a page about myself, it's not too late for you to turn back now.

Since this is more of a place holder than anything else at the moment you're not going to see much. I'll just tack things on to the end as I feel like it.

I live in Niagara Falls, NY, work in Buffalo and I'm starting on this in a hotel room in Rochester since there's not much else to do while not in class (NetWare CNA). Surprise, Surprise I work with computers.

My name? The Wolfanger part came from my ancestors from the town of Kannesweiller, Germany (Anyone know where that is? Can't find it on a map). Heinrech Wolfanger was born in 1750 and came to Western New York in 1789 so that's as far back as I can go.

Oh, you mean the Sick part. Well it's German, what can I say, it's much more common there than it is here.

I was born in '63 so that makes me old enough to have a twelve year old son who can't get past playing Wolfenstein on the computer instead of "really" learning how to use the thing. OK OK so things change fast and he's doing DOOM2 now and trying out publishing making small newsletters with some of his friends at school. Then again I remember teaching him originally how to boot an XT with a floppy.

Over the years I've worked at a 7-11 (at 15), an auto-shop, shot photos, did auditing, worked at a steel shop, played in a German Band for 12 years, fenced, and finally work now as an IS Network Technician. I get to play with (and fix) a whole bunch of computers on a network.

Yesterday (6-29-97, since "yesterday" won't be the same once today is over) I went and finally got me a new (sorta) motorcycle. I had one back 15 years ago but I haven't had the circumstances together to get one again till now. Here it is... (see note about motorcycle later)

Many a year ago I did some writing now and then, just for fun, didn't really try to do anything with it (of course you can sit back and say "GOOD!" or some other not so nice things. Here's one such short story called A Cat O' Mine Tale. Once over ten years ago as of this writing someone bet me that I couldn't write a story less than a page long, so I sat down at her typewriter and belted out All The World's A Bakery (And we are merely dough).

Something else I like to try and do now and then is make Mead, my specialty is Pineapple Melomel. For those that don't know what mead is; it can easiest be described as honey wine. It an old Viking drink that predates about any other fermented beverage you'll find. Here's my recipe for Mead and for Pineapple Melomel.

Feb '98
Can't say yet <G>
March "98
Still can't say <BG>
OK, now I can say, but you wouldn't be interested <G>

May '98
Much earlier I wrote that I was going for my CNA... well I never finished that, I was too busy doing the job instead of being taught how to do it <G>. Besides, I'm no longer there working with Novell, I'm over at Buffalo State College working with their UNIX servers now.
For anyone who is looking for such information I put on-line the Wolfanger Family History, as much of it that I have anyway. It starts in 1750 in Germany and goes to around when I was born in 1963. My son is a teenager now so my rate of aging has just gone up <BG>.

June '98
Awwwww, forget that Vulcan 750... it turned out to be too small for me. I found this out at the beginning of the month when I rode over to Americade at Lake George. So now I went and got one with an engine TWICE as big. A 1997 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500A .

November '98
Sheeesh, it's November already. I started hearing the Christmas music before Holloween, need ear plugs. The VRA is starting to open up chapters all over the world (think of them like the Gold Wingers) and not to be out done there is one for Western New York as well. So if you have any model of the Vulcan Motorcycle and want to join in hop on over to our local site at http://vra.wolfcrews.com/chapters/wny_chapter/  (9-20-2002 Never mind, it's closed)

October '99
See? I'm still around. Short Note. More MC stuff. Join ABATE. For our local chapter see http://www.abate-niagara.org/ . Also for some reason the first Novel from one of my favorite writers has become public domain, so here it is.

Still October?
Long time ago I mentioned my son playing on the computer. Now he can say he's here. Here's the thumbnail, it can be clicked on for the larger version

Well I ordered the Harley, it'll be a while before it's in but I'm starting a site for it anyway. http://harley.wolfcrews.com

October 2000
October already?!?!? See how long I can ignore this page? The above mentioned link is now known as http://harley.wolfcrews.com  Da Bike Is In

November 2001
I guess this is turning into a once a year thing. For anyone nuts enough to actually read this... I'm still maintaining sites kinda sorta. One year on the bike and I've put somewhat more than the average number of miles on it. The 9/11 happenings put a kaboosh on the trip to Biketoberfest this year so me and the ol' lady will do a quick trip to Philly next month. I go to the shooting range with the toys now and then, ride the bike when the roads have no snow or ice on them, still work at the college (hope to retire here), Ronnie is 16 now, etc etc.

May 2004... Did I say Once a year? Bwahhh hah ha ha ha ha ha... A blogger I'm NOT!

Feb 2005... Yes I am still alive as of this writing.

Feb 2006... K, so here's why I really don't write anything here. Who cares? You think that I think anyone cares? Anyway, for test and demo purposes I've been using blog software on my server here and anything new that at one time would have gone here goes there instead. I'll have this posted that both top and bottom of this page. Just about anything that is on THIS page is also copied over there. Let me know if any of it seems broke.

June 2009... Wow does this site look like an antique (That little kid above is now 24)
