Intro No. 37:
I've written these about 37 different times and never gotten
around to sending them.
> Name: Ronald P. Roberts Jr (Ron, Rob or hey you, just as long
as I'm not late for dinner)
> Current Occupation: US Military. Computer Repairer,
Programmer, Operator and Installer. Been a Soldier for 19.?
years. Been a Sergeant for a lot of those years. Do you know
the difference between the Military and the Boy Scouts? The
Boy Scouts have adult leadership. Sorry about that
> Scouting History: Assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 432 and
Adult Leader for Girl Scout Cadette Troop 598 here in Ft
Joined Cub Scouts in Japan. Continued in Cub Scouts, Boy
Scouts and Explorers in Virginia, Kentucky and Iowa. Got older
(I refuse to grow up) and became a Scouter in Virginia,
Germany and now Arizona. I've always been on the fringes,
mostly because my mom and dad have always been involved in
Scouting in one form or the other.
Currently I'm working on my beads. One of my ticket
items is setting up a Bulletin Board for Scouters on one of our
local BBS's. One part of the BBS that I currently plan to
implement, is to consolidate some of the discussions in this
forum, and make them available for our Scouters to have.
Being unsure on whether or not you'll would like to be quoted
verbatim, I would like to know the proper thing to do. Do I edit
out all references to individuals and not give credit(s) to
anybody except the SCOUTS-L or are all of these messages
Public Domain as-is. I'm marginally concerned about
legalities, more so about morality. I 'think' I can do basically
whatever I want with what you've said, but if you don't want
to be quoted directly, please say so.
> I'm going to keep this short (?) for now, but I'll be back with
some opinions of my own. Hopefully I can get the message out
this time. I'm experiencing technical problems at this end (I
don't know what I'm doing), I'm using White Knight software on
a Macintosh II, running through a DDN (Defense Data Network)
Unix based machine.
> Two more of my ticket items is writing a Welcome Packet
for new Scouts to our Troop. If anybody's done this before and
has any lessons learned, I'd appreciate any help. I'll be doing it
on the Macintosh, so if you've got a Macintosh w/Word 4.0 and
you'd like a copy complete with graphics let me know. If you
have any other computer, I can export in ASCII text for your
Have a nice life or Illigitimus non carborundum est (sp).
