What can I say? I’m a software engineer out of Cleveland, Ohio. I work for a large insurance company, and am pretty much a jack of all trades.
I was fortunate to be the daughter of a true electronics engineering genius, so we always had all the toys. My first computer was a home made cp/m80, that had user1-10 as directories, and ram and hard disk space so infinitely small by today’s standards, I can’t even remember. I received it as a birthday gift at 8 years old. I had an amber monochrome big CRT monitor to go with it.
I was in love for the first time of my life.
I discovered BASIC. My dad taught me some Assembly. I played Zork and The Colossal Cave Adventure, and my life was set in stone.
Fast forward a LONG, LONG, LONG time and I am still very much in love with technology and engineering. It is what I do for a living, and it is also what I do for fun. It defines me.
That being said, I got to where I am today in a very round-about way, and have picked up some interesting tricks in the process. This blog is about sharing what I know.
