11 years of computing experience, beginning w/ the Apple ][ e
11 years of M$ experience beginning w/ M$-DOS 3 (ahh, the days of the "5 1/4" Floppy),
and on though DOS 7; Windows 3.1, Win95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP
I've also been breaking and fixing my own Linux Boxen since late 1999; originally started out w/ PhatLinux 3.1 Distro (an excellent distro for the newbie IMHO) and worked my way up to the more orthodox distros (I ran Mandrake and Slackware for awhile and finally setted on Redhat linux). I am also an A+ Certified Professional, although I have found little work utilizing it in this area excepting what those who I work for on my own. I also have a hobby (or obsession, if you ask my wife) with network security and other related topics. I look forward to meeting many of you and engaging in discussion w/ you in the future.
