Hello, my name is Yonna Tukundane. I am a father, husband and social media manager. In my primary school, I looked forward to having my personal site, place where I would share my thoughts and experience with you. I had no knowledge about computers or the internet at the time. The first time I touched a computer was in 2004 at Kashozi Boarding Primary school. It was second term and I had only been in this school for two weeks.
Before entering the computer room, we had to leave our shoes outside and walk in a line. The unwritten rule was do not touch the computer unless you are told to do so. The computers were about fifteen meaning each computer was shared by 2-3 pupils. The class started with the two parts of a computer i.e. the software and hardware. As we went into details of the hardware, I discovered the CPU and monitor switches. I was excited and pressed them in the order explained by our computer teacher.
Big mistake. The cream compaq computer desktop in front of me started booting and boy was I excited. First the flickering white light on the CPU that turned green, the monitor was showing an MS DOS window asking me to press enter to start the computer. I looked for the enter key on the keyboard and pressed it to see what would happen. I remember the Microsoft Window 95 logo appearing on the screen with the booting music in the background. Everyone in class went quiet and all eyes were on me.
As I looked around the laboratory to locate the teacher for help, I was hit with a wooden broom handle in the middle of my smoothly shaved head. The teacher was furious and without waiting for explanation, he chased me out of the computer laboratory. I was banned from accessing this facility for two weeks. This is the day I feel head over heals with computers.
I am not reinventing the wheel when it comes to writing. But I know there are people who will learn a thing or two from me. I will only be uploading a post every Friday, writing about life, social media, digital tools, smartphone content creation, free training facilities on the internet, applications that can improve your work flow, books I am reading, marriage, raising children, christian life among others.
At the moment, I don’t have a tagline for this blog. I hope to get one along the way. Thank you for taking time to visit. Please share your comments and lets connect on social media. I am thrilled to have overcome the decade of procrastination. This blog is a fresh start for me.
