Woodworking and Music
The Girls


Hello and Welcome to the worst website I have done to date!

Believe it or not, I really was a software developer but rarely had time to work on things like websites. Mostly I worked on lower level communications code and custom code currently mostly on linux using "C".  I started in the computer field back in about '82 on Texas Instrument Mid range computers using COBOL, then PL1 and BAL on IBM mainframes and Tandem using TAL.  Moved into VTAM/NCP,  reading dumps and traces in support of the Sears/Allstate/Coldwell Bander/Dean Witter SNA network.  Finally moving back to code development on AIX and Linux which is the equivalent of moving from solving problems to creating them ;-)

I thought I would enjoyed the web development until I had to develop an MDM solution in a framework that made zero sense to me in PHP and SQL. I realized there were many other things I preferred to be doing with my time.   

As to what I like to do when I am not coding???  Lot's of stuff in addition to sitting on my butt watching a movie, the DVR or listening to music.

Music Mostly Ukulele and Bass now days, singing backing vocals for other musician friend.
Diving Which I haven't done in quite some time. I Miss it. Used to go to Bonaire often till Hurricane Lenny and 9/11.  That was when Motorcycles came back into my life after a long hiatus. .
Woodworking Mostly furniture and projects for friends and family.  I would like to get back to working on and building guitars again.
Audio-video-philia Avid to some degree. In otherwords,  money IS an object.  Music and Movies and nice home theater setups are definitely nice to have. 
Motorcycling Harleys in particular...
Billiards A morbid unrelenting fascination.
