I’m your basic computer geek. I started working for IBM back in 1988 after graduating from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Systems. After IBM, there was Tandem Computers, Compaq, Hewlett Packard, Inet and Tektronics, Graceway Media, RT Creative Group and Maestros.com. Actually, I’ve ONLY worked for 4 organizations…. but because of company acquisitions it seems like more. ;)

I’ve done Performance Testing for VM Mainframes, installation testing for communications software. I was an SCM ( Software Configuration Management ) for 12 years. I was the primay web developer (PHP) for http://gracewaymedia.com for 4 years ( till 2014 ). I was 1 of a 3 man team of programmers for Maestros.com from Jan 2015 to Dec 2019. In December 2019, I parted ways with Maestros. I am currently between computer gigs.

The first PC I built from parts was an IBM 10mhz XT.. I upgraded that to 286, then 386, then 486, etc. I’ve assembled 50+ PCs over the years.

I’ve been running linux for over 15 years. My first linux installation was slackware version 1.x something.
