About Me

I've been working with computers since 1976. My first purchased PC was an Apple ][+ purchased for a god awful amount of money back then. 64k RAM, two floppies, no monitor, I think it was $1,200.

First Mac came in the original Own-a-Mac program, second shipment into CT. I was in the first Laserwriter repair class since I worked for a dealer back then.

PC background started when IBM delivered first units to CT, my employer serviced the insurance companies in Hartford, I was in charge of the service departments.

I've built MANY PCs, worked in all major operating systems, I currently run Windows XP, Windows 7, Fedora, Windows Server 2003 + 2008, and now Mac OSx on various computers.

I worked for three computer chains before moving to the manufacturing sector. Worked for Synoptics which became Bay Networks which was purchased and trashed by Nortel. Nortel laid me off back in the Internet crash. I ran my own PC business until the prices fell to under $500 from Dell.

Now I fix stuff for friends and my church. I also host a few servers that provide radius and email for dial-up user, yes people still use dial-up.
