Hello World

My first computer was a TRS 80 Model III Microcomputer.  Granted, it was exceptionally antiquated when I first acquired it; it was something that was purchased, put into storage, and then dug out in the mid-90’s only to amaze my family when it still worked.  I remember reading over the manuals, which were these thick hole-punched documents in heavy three-ring binders with faux leather.  One of the first programs the manual had a person create, so that they could understand how to use the computer’s particular brand of BASIC, was one that displayed two words on the screen.

HELLO WORLD.

I am not new to blogging by any means, although I have certainly taken a long hiatus from it.  In some ways, the purpose of this blog and this website is to better familiarize myself with certain standards and techniques in website creation and maintenance.  It will also allow me to share my opinions and thoughts on everything from technology and security to gaming and writing.

As I write this, I am a student at a college going after a two year degree in network administration, and I am anticipating acquiring my A+ Certifications and acquiring a few additional certifications as time permits.  I also currently work in the healthcare field as a Personal Care Assistant, specializing in the care of elderly individuals.  I have over 15 years of customer service experience in a wild variety of fields, but it has only been in the last couple of years that I have been focused on rebranding myself as a family man and as a professional.  It is my intent that my years of experience dealing with customers in a number of different venues coupled with my recent focus on skill acquisition will find me in the service of a company that can utilize my talents and skills.

I currently live in Illinois with my saintly wife, my three adorable children (although the oldest would squirm at that adjective), as well as a dog, cats, and two ferrets.  It’s a full life, to be sure, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
