Parents named me William Wesley Groleau, after my great-grandfather William Waack and John Wesley. But for reasons unknown, they always used my middle name, so eventually I became W. Wesley Groleau. Then when bureaucrats¹ tried to force me to be William W., I had it legally changed to my preference. At the time, I was too young and naive to realize that one cannot stop bureacratic harassment.
After ten years of electronics, including teaching, I got into software engineering via a short path through technical writing and software test. Thirty-plus years of software were fun, but now I am retired and can pursue a greater interest—languages! Dabbled in many; can read several if not too difficult, and communicate (more or less) in a few. Some post-graduate linguistics, but not the degree.
And now …Edit
My wife² went to heaven without me. Our sons are grown and doing well. Therefore, until time to join her, I’m out and about getting familiar with this world.
