To everyone in and around Missouri, I'm just curious where you might be from.

I was born and raised in Missouri and have been in the Kansas City area for the majority of my life. I've spent a few months in China Town, but that's about it.

I was raised in Utica, Missouri (population 100), about five miles west of Chillicothe. I met my wife in college at MU, and we lived in Columbia for several years before moving to KC in 1998. We are lifelong Missourians and proud of it!

Met my wife in KCMO in 1977. Oklahoma from '81-'95. Back in MO since '95, living in what many lifelong natives call "America's Third World County" deep in the Missouri Ozarks.

Dabbled with variopus Linux distros over the years, never really picking up anything but a very shallow knowledge. Making a deliberate move to an Ubuntu-only comp as my main machine. Head spinning. :-)

I've lived in 3 states in the lower 48. I've been to every state but Alaska, I"m currently thinking of moving my permanent residence to PA, but hopefully won't have to. I traveled for work for nearly 10 years so I'm from... Wherever. and when people ask what I do for work, I tell them I"m an accountant becuase it's just easier to explain. and they stop pissing me off and let me read my book already.
