I've always had a love for computers and technology. Back in high school, I was interested in electronics, and had one of those Radio Shack 150-in-1 electronic kits. That interest evolved into the next trend: microcomputers.
I still remember when the Popular Science and Popular Mechanics magazines began their coverage of the home computers - the TRS-80, PET, and Apple II. Teaching myself BASIC, I would hang around the local Radio Shack stores and write programs on the demo machines. Other computers I've owned included a Tandy Color Computer, NEC MSX-compatible, XT, and 386.
Fast forward a number of years, and I am still closely following the technology trends, adding in networking, internet, and web development to my interests. It's amazing to see how much computer are continuing to evolve.
I manage a personal PC network that includes the following:
