Full Biography

A computer user since 80's I’m now a consultant who works with business (small and large) and individual users helping them get the most out of their computer investments and get connected to Internet resources. I'm a regular up-grader of both hardware and software (okay, it's my hobby not just my job).
Current experience is with Windows (all versions) and Microsoft applications and networking.  Current jobs revolve around broadband and wireless Internet facilities, Windows infrastructure for government and corporate clients.
My earliest experiences were with 8 and 16-bit computers, DOS v3 and above, and UNIX (HP/Apollo/Domain not HP-UX).
I now work primarily with Intel PCs running Windows7, Server 2008/2012 and quite a few Mac OSx stations but I enjoy toying with Linux on the side.
