And The Road Goes Ever On...

It was a Commodore Pet. I turned on the system, saw the lime flickering text on the screen, and was hooked for life. Like an addict, I pursued the knowledge of computers and computing with a passion that has sometimes bordered on insanity. All-nighters, caffeine filled weekends and shopping online for documentation older than I am have all led me to where I am today. Yes, the journey started with a stand-alone Commodore computer (which I still argue was the best line of computers in personal computing history), but it moved well beyond the scope of personal computing.

Compliments of (and to) Devin

Civil EngineerOne of my human resolutions is to be more optimistic and to find more opportunities to speak words of affirmation. I know, that seems better suited to a pop-psychology Christian blog than a WLAN blog, but bear with me for minute. Words of affirmation are sometimes rare in technology realms because if we’re really honest, most IT folks are surly, irascible, and unwilling to say nice things or help junior engineers. That’s a pretty crummy way to spend your days. And that’s why I’m often inspired, encouraged, and even surprised when I meet skilled senior engineers that are willing to be human by graciously recognizing that everyone has to start somewhere.
