Who is Trekkieguy?

Just who is this self-proclaimed "Trekkieguy" anyway?  Well, just in case you're curious about who created this website, I thought I'd include an information page with a little bit about me.

First of all, let me say "Thank you" for visiting my website.  It's been a long process getting it to the point it's at now but it's been worth it.  I hope you're enjoying the sound WAVs, book reviews and all the other stuff that's here.



Anyway, a bit about me . . . My name is Jeff, I'm 49 years old and I live in Taber, Alberta Canada.
Pronounced: TAY-ber.

Here's a couple of maps so you can get a better understanding of where Taber is.
The first map is North America and the second map is just Canada:

I've been a Star Trek fan for longer than I can remember with my main interest being the original series.  I enjoy the other series as well but the original will always be number one in my book.  Yes, the special effects look cheesy by today's standards, but it was ground-breaking stuff back in the '60's and considering they made the show with an extremely small budget, I think it holds up pretty well.  Besides, it was the actors and the quality of the stories that made the show special, not the effects.

Anyway, I've had the pleasure of attending many Star Trek conventions over the years and have met all the original cast except for Grace Lee Whitney.  I even got the chance to meet Gene Roddenberry in Spokane, WA. back in 1986 (which was my first convention.)

I met Majel Barrett at the same convention in a rather unique way:  I was a bit late getting to the ballroom for one of the events so when I entered the room, not wanting to cause a disturbance, I sat down on the closest empty seat to the door.  After getting settled in my seat I glanced to my left to see who I was sitting next to and to my surprise it was Majel Barrett Roddenberry!  After the event we talked for a bit and I got an autograph and a picture of the two of us together!

I've been to a lot of conventions since then, meeting William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy in Seattle WA., DeForest Kelley in Spokane, WA., George Takei and James Doohan in Edmonton, AB. and Walter Koenig in Calgary, AB.  I've also met several cast members from the other Trek series' as well.

I do have other interests besides Star Trek.  Being Canadian, I'm an avid hockey fan with my favorite teams being the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Calgary Flames.  I also enjoy photography, hiking, camping, downhill skiing, rollerblading, golf and building WWII models.

Of course, computers are another interest of mine.  I first learned about computers at school in the mid 80's on an Apple ][ and have owned a few different computers over the years such as a Sinclair ZX81, a Timex Sinclair 2068, an Atari 130 XE, and even a Radio Shack computer! (What can I say - it was the 80's!).

Starting in the 90's I've owned a Packard Bell 133 MHz computer (16 MB of RAM with a 1 GB hard drive [Woohoo!]).  From there I bought a Hewlett Packard 933 MHz computer (256 MB RAM with a 40 GB hard drive), and a Hewlett Packard 3.1 GHz computer with 3 GB of RAM and a 200 GB hard drive running Windows XP Media Edition, an HP Pavilion P6310F Quad Core 2.8 GHz machine running Windows 7 with 6 GB RAM and a 1 TB hard drive with 2 external hard drives (1.5 TB) for a total of 2.5 TB of memory.

I recently had a computer crash (October 2016) so now I own an
Acer AXC-603-EB11 Desktop with an Intel Pentium J2900 2.41GHz processor, 8GB DDR3 RAM, 1 TB hard drive with an external 3 TB hard drive running Windows 10 64 Bit.


Thank you for your interest in my website.  I hope you'll bookmark the site and return often.  If you'd like to send me an email I'd love to hear from you.  You can ask me a question, compliment (or criticize!) the site, request a sound file or even just say hello.  I'll do my best to get back to you as soon as possible, but please remember I do work during the day so don't get discouraged if you don't get a response right away.  Thank you very much!
