Biography:
I have been around computers, since you could say pretty much the days of Home Brew Computing was a household name, and Computer Hacking, meant that you were building or understanding how they worked over 40 years ago. I built my first computer in 1979 with my father at age 12. Before that, we owned an Exidy Sorcerer in 1978. I grew up around electronics all of my life, while my father worked for the telephone company, along with serving in the United States Air Force as a Radioman. From 1979 to 1985, I wrote programs in Assembly and MS-Dos Basic, I also ran one of the few Bulletin Boards in my town for a brief period. In 1983, I wrote one of the first programs in CP/M, which allowed users to dial into a computer, while also allowing the remote user to work with another user at a remote location. While serving in the U.S. Navy from August of 1985 until Honorably Discharged as a Petty Officer 3rd Class (E-4) in November of 1988; I worked as an Interior Communications Electrician, while serving on the USS Saipan (LHA-2). My duties involved supporting shipboard communications equipment, navigational equipment, researching part numbers and filling out supply requests while my ship was going through a maintenance period in the Philadelphia Shipyards. During those days that I was on duty for more than 24 hours, I was assigned to the ship’s Rescue and Assistance team (R&A for short) as a duty electrician. While assigned as Duty IC/Electrician, I would check Ship to Shore Electrical cables, escort contractors, complete any maintenance and repairs, take reports and repair tickets.
I got into computer network design and writing batch files for the early 10Base-T networks in the early 90's, while still running a Fido Net BBS during that time until 1996; which at that time was when the Internet took off, and BBS systems were dying off to be resurrected on the Internet as FTP sites, along with the current form as websites where the end user can communicate with others in a Peer-to-Peer environment. I work with handling any technical questions that someone may have, along with discussions in the more technical aspect of networking and hardware for networking and computers. In 2001, I worked for Cellular 1 – Central Illinois until 2003 when it became Cingular Wireless/SBC Cellular. During that time, I attended Kaplan Online University I started taking courses in Computers, then switched to following a Bachelor of Science degree for Business Administration/Human Resources with a minor in Business Law and Accounting. At this time I have enough credits to earn an Associates Degree; while that is something that can state that I have done enough, I still want to complete my degree through what is now Purdue Global Online University, previously known as Kaplan Online University.
I continue to keep up on the changes in Networking, Microsoft Office, Cloud Based services for computing and the Remote Site End User technologies.

Ren: Now listen, Cadet. I've got a job for you. See this button? Ren: Don't touch it! It's the History Eraser button, you fool! Stimpy: So what'll happen? Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?
