I have worked over nine years as a municipal IT staff member working on systems integration, sustaining engineering, and systems/database administration. I work with wonderful people, a boss with a sense of humor, and a lot of interesting work, no kidding.
Before all this, there were many years in the computer industry interrupted by nearly two years as a radio talk show side-kick, announcer, and music selection system programmer at WBOQ (Gloucester, MA).
Octopus Grabus is a name I borrowed from The Three Stooges. Veteran actor Vernon Dent, who played Emperor Octopus Grabus in 1942’s “Matri-Phoni”, the 63rd Three Stooges’ short.
Vernon Dent had diabetes, and eventually became sightless. However, he was such a consummate actor that he could hit all his marks while acting, and, when meeting people could process friends’ navigational help and position himself to start conversing with someone without their knowing he was sightless. Most people never knew this up until his death in 1963.
