Black Viper is back! Yes, this is the "real" Black Viper. Here is some answers to questions that people may be asking themselves:
What happened to you?!?! Did you die in a car wreck? Go to jail?! Get Cancer?!?!
No, I did not. Even though I have searched several times on Google in the past (almost) two years as to what people thought happened to me, nobody but me actually knew the truth. In any case, if you have read any "stories" or forum posts, etc with regards to my "real" situation, it is false. Any other people claiming to be "Black Viper" wandering around the internet giving advice and such is also false. The people that know the "real me" also know that anything I would put publicly available will be on this domain. With the exception of a handful of posts on my old World of Warcraft guild forums, you will not find me posting anything anywhere else.
Will you update your site with Windows Vista information?
Yes, however… this will take time. I am starting to get back into the swing of things and plan on doing exactly what I did before: provide accurate information and opinions. I have used Vista for several months (I have a MSDN subscription) and will update everything as time allows.
How are your kitties?
All three of them are just fine. A new photo of them and I taken by my wife on March 9, 2007. The oldest (and largest) is eight years old and the other two are four years old. Additional kitty photos are also online.
Has your grammar and spelling improved?
Many people copied and reposted your services information! What are you going to do about that?
Pretty much nothing. In time, the "well intended" people will remove the copies of my information and link, once again, to the real pages on this domain. The people that ripped my information and called it their own know whom they are and my dedicated readers will spread the truth.
What are you doing now? How are things going?
I am currently attending a local community college full time and have been unemployed since October 2005, when I quit my Electronics Tech. job, sold the house and moved with my wife and three kitties to Northern California to be closer to my family. The reason the domain has not been brought back sooner are many (including time and scope of my effort on here), but one of the reasons is money. My savings account is dwindling and money is extremely tight. Not many technical jobs in the local area and employment is slim.
For many years, I helped countless people with their computer issues and never asked anything in return. I have spent thousands of hours (as well as dollars) on this domain and am very proud of it. However, recent events have compelled me to reach out to my loyal readers for support. Previous donations while the domain was online have long gone. If you can spare any amount of money to keep this web site online, consider a donation!
What is your real name? Where did you move to? What is your new contact information?
My real name is Charles M. Sparks and I currently live with my wonderful wife and three kitties in Yreka, California.
My current contact information is located on the Contact BV page.
