I no more know my destiny than a tea leaf knows the history of the East India Company.
I'm a child of the 80's, and a teen of the 90's. Everyone's pretty much a computer nerd nowadays, but I'm an oldschool one. I was a nerd before nerds became necessary and trendy. My first computer was an Apple II+ that my dad sodered together sometime around 1983 -- I'm not exactly sure on the year but I know I had it for a year or two before I started calling BBS's, when I was 8 years old. I ran a dial-up BBS called "Moon Base Station Three" which everyone told me was too long, so I changed it to "Mission Control". But I left my username the same, as "Marvin The Paranoid Android" after one of my favorite characters from the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams. It started with WWIV v4.11, became a heavily modded WWIV, but I later changed it to VBBS. I ran the BBS from age 14 to age 16.
I graduated from Neshaminy High School in 1995. I attended Bucks County Community College from Fall 1995 to Spring 1997. I was in the U.S. Army from 2006-2011 as a military broadcast journalist. Now I work for Conrail as a conductor, remote operator, or engineer.
