My name is Aaron J Wisti, and I am a writer.
In addition to writing, I dabble with computer tech support, software installation, pc assembly, and web design trends.
I am disabled and cannot work at this time, which gives me the free time (when I'm not dealing with personal issues) I need to pursue my interests and hobbies. I do not follow a trendy lifestyle and instead prefer the simpler things in life - my political views are conservative / libertarian, in other words if what you're doing doesn't hurt anyone (or violate the laws of nature), I don't care what you do for the most part.
I started out life as an Air Force brat, lived in Okinawa, Japan, for a brief period, visited the Philippines a few times and finally started my school years in Superior, Wisconsin.
I got a brief taste of computers while overseas. My Dad demonstrated to me what an IBM Punch Card Machine does, and created a few personalised cards for me to keep.
My formal education with computers began in Omaha, Nebraska. I enrolled in a computer class and one of my assignments was to use an Apple 2c and program an animated rocket ship. I had fun in that class, and consider this a worthwhile experience.
Fast forward a few years, to the beginnings of home-based internet (with free disposable dial-up internet cds) and Microsoft Windows 95. My dream at the time was to become a published author, and I would tinker with Microsoft Publisher in my pursuit of creating websites and publishing my poetry.
In 2007, with the help of my brother, Brian Wisti, I eke out my first ad-free website. With that, Wisti-Thinking.com was born. I no longer work on that site, and the only place to find it now is at https://web-beta.archive.org/web/*/wisti-thinking.com
Since my first ad-free website was created, I have taken on a few other projects. I not only have an interest in designing websites and publishing poetry, I also do pc troubleshooting for myself and my in-laws. I am no expert, though. I do enjoy software troubleshooting - with help from Google, and I also enjoy taking computers apart to clean them and put them back together.
