Full Biography

My IT experience has been obtained through years of "doing"...I have a degree in Architectural Engineering (don't ask me how they're related as the answer is like dividing zero by zero).  I like to poke at people who get caught up in the computertraining.com jazz - 6 months of classes is not going to make you an expert.  My first computer, as many, was the beloved Commodore 64.  I learned nothing other than how to type, boot from a floppy disk, and fight in dragons lair.  I was mainly self-taught until high school, where I managed to earn credits for taking three of the same classes twice, arguing that qbasic and visual basic were completely different courses of study.  My formal training ended at AP Computer Sciences with C++.
