Here, you may be expecting to find a nice, dry little introduction written by someone either separate from the author of a self-titled site, or written by said author in the third person.

I’m not that kind of writer.

I have been an avid follower of technology since my earliest recollections of life, beginning with a badly constructed “boat” made of a handful of 2×4″ scraps and an electric motor. If it was electronic and commonly found at flea markets in the 1980’s, it’s entirely likely that I disassembled one to see how it worked.

Moving on to computers, my interests began with a Commodore 64 my father purchased at a yard sale sometime in the late 1980’s. From the very first time I plugged my own, functional personal computer into the television, I was hooked. Commodore 64 begat Commodore 128, which begat Packard Bell ‘286, which begat a custom ‘486-75. And that’s when all the trouble started.

Today, my interests and knowledge range a broad spectrum of current technology affairs. Jack of all trades and master of none, I admit that my knowledge may not be as deep as many of those in the field of information technology. Unburdened as I am, by the weight of employment, I have decided to try and put my knowledge to use in a way that might help the average person who finds themselves confused by current technology.

I hold an Associate’s Degree in Applied Science in computer programming, have served as an Information Technology consultant and staffer for Access Carson City, designed advertisement copy and artwork for a small newspaper, managed dispatch and customer contacts for a family water treatment firm, and performed in a number of smaller consulting roles.

But most importantly, I am unemployed and working to put my knowledge to use. If you have technology questions that you would like to see this site address, please see the contact page.
