About

A glorified IT grunt based out of central Texas. Terii is not just interested in IT stuff… he likes technology in general. In his spare time he likes to watch shows and play video games.

This page is his tracking space for IT related procedures. He also is an enthusiast in following areas and will post things about them from time to time.

  • Photography
  • Automobile
  • Firearm

Keep in mind English isn’t his first language when you are surfing this website. Be kind about those grammar mistakes. 🙂
