JR's War Page
JR's views and opinions about our current war. (CAUTION: Expect nothing even close to political correctness on this site.)

J.R. Whipple has designed, built, sold, and repaired computers for over 30 years! He opened his professional doors in the mid 1970s in Santa Clara, California, and has sold and installed computer systems in some of the largest high-tech companies in Silicon Valley.

In the 1970's J.R. Whipple worked with the founders of several high-tech companies in the bay area, 'Silicon Valley', to help invent the personal computer.

JR developed the finest computers on earth. Over all those years JR has designed a number of computers, repaired thousands of other manufacture's machines, and seen & used nearly every computer ever made. This has given him the opportunity to see the good – the bad - and the ugly of nearly every computer ever made.

All good things must pass. J.R. has retired from the computer industry, and will soon be a full-time RVer.

Soon JR expects to be on the road in his motor-home, traveling throughout these wonderful United States, periodically reuniting with old friends, and hopefully making a few new friends throughout this last great journey of his life.

As attested by his online personas as 'Shoot2Stop' and 'Judge JR', he is very active in the world of firearms. Shoot2Stop for his online interests in RKBA 'Right to Keep and Bear Arms', including concealed carry and IDPA, and his nom de plume 'Judge JR' as his Cowboy Action Shooting persona, JR is especially interested in meeting, talking, and shooting, with like minded folks throughout our great nation.

As JR's perpetual road trip nears this web site will contain a dynamic map. (And he may even start talking in the first person. :-) By virtue of GPS and an online real-time mapping system, JR's travels and itinerary will be continuously updated and displayed here. Friends, both old and new, are welcome to contact JR, and invite him for a visit, to shoot & gab, as he nears their particular location.


If you find any errors in the facts or logic of this web page, or simply differ in philosophy, JR is interested in your feedback. Email JR. Please no unintelligible rants or raves. Sophomoric or un-referenced responses will be directed to the bit-bucket.
