In the Telecommunications Industry for over 24 years. I have worked for Multiple ISP's, RBOCs, and as a Network Specialist @ IBM Inc. I stop by here when time permits to keep me on the cutting edge for troubleshooting issues of all aspects in technology and more... I was one of the few who were able to use the ARPANET at the time due to my USMC background and it gave me the drive to always strive to learn more everyday. Technology changes by the minute and this website allows alot of bright minded individuals to collaborate and strive to achieve the objective of an answer! Glad to see this site has grown immensely over the years.
