Get to know your .NET forum leaders..

Posted 04 December 2010 - 01:46 PM

Everyone,

I wanted to drop a little note about myself as a new forum leader. I am a Nebraskan.. near 30ish years old... and have been programming for quite some time. For a paycheck - say about seven years... unofficially fifteenish years. Most of that time has been in .NET with a smattering of Java and PHP here or there.

I really started in computers back when I wanted to play Doom (1) on my mom's work PC (486 Packard Bell!). I was forced to figure out how to alter the autobat and configs to get the game to work properly. That was.. what? Good ol' DOS 6.2?

From there I became the resident 'fixer' of the friends and family. I got my own PC (Gateway 133mhz!) with a 1.9gb hard drive. I swore I could hear an echo because it was so freaking large. I did quite a bit of QBASIC and batch programming (securing my Boyscout Computer merit badge!) and then moved to a free copy of Borland Turbo C++ from a family friend who got it at work.

I graduated from the University of Nebraska - Omaha with a Comp Sci degree and a Native American minor. (Yeah long story - but my years of high school policy debate required me to vent on the soft-studies kids.)

I enjoy tinkering with programs at home, I finally got a new job so it'll be for a paycheck again (I was laid off), and futzing with my digital artwork.

If you have any specific questions let me know!

Hi modi,
I'm a newbie here and also a Nebraskan. I went to UNO for comp science and graduated on May 2001. Very nice to see you here.
