About

This web site is simply dedicated to sharing things I like. It serves no other purpose than that.

If you’re still curious, here’s a point list about me…

Computer History

Computers have interested me since I first used one in 1979. A Digital PDP-11. I remember programming this 6-foot monster with punch cards and saving my work to an 8 inch floppy disk.

Since then I’ve:

  • Programmed in BASIC
  • Programmed in Machine Language (c64)
  • Programmed in C++ (briefly)
  • Ran several BBS’s (Bulletin Board System)
  • Price Coordinator (Point of Sale systems)
  • Programmed in MEX (More about that here: Maximus!)
  • Web Design (HTML, CSS, PHP)
  • Forum Management and Administration (Fancy words meaning Spam Hunter)
