Biography Wow...Well I'm 40yrs old and I believe the very first time I laid my hands on a "Computer" I was hooked like a Hound Dog chasing a squirrel. That was in about 5th or 6th grade. I loved that dang Oregon Trail Game (geez I just did a search and have to get it now). But anyway moving along...My 1st online experience was something called Prodigy, I think? Some sort of online Encyclopedia. Sorry Wiki. In 1998 I moved from Cincinnati, Oh to Anchorage, Alaska to pursue my College Degree in Electronics Technology. Although I loved all the transisters, resisters and of course Ohm's Law, I never stopped playing around with PC's. As a side job I worked in the computer lab at the University and made friends with one of the smartest (technically genius) guys I have ever met (Hi #JimWeller). That was when I was introduced to Linux (Unix). It wasn't so pretty back then. I build my first Bare Bones Box in 1999. I bought all the parts piece by piece from an online store called... Google Gear. Well that name didn't last long now they are Tiger Direct. My first real Job was a LAN Admin of a medical billing company somewhere around 2002. Eventually I got into Mobile Sales right when GSM was taking over and this new thing called TEXT messaging and Bluetooth? How the hell was I supposed to sell that, right. Who wants to type on their phone all day. (WOW). And so for about 10 years I really didn't do much with computers except play on the net and I built a couple game boxes. So about 4 years ago I built a new box and started getting back into things. 2 years ago I got serious about rekindling my 1st passion. And now I find myself banging my head on the desktop sometimes because this d@mn technology doesn't slow down for anyone. But that's ok with me, I've learned to just learn that's the way it is!
