I am a graduate of San José State University where I earned a BS in Computer Science. I also hold an MS from Naval Postgraduate School. I toughed it out in the computer industry until the dot-com bust. Since then I’ve been gainfully employed by the United States Navy.
I am a fan of Linux and I particularly favor lightweight distros. It’s a consequence of being cheap. I keep my computers long past the time someone else would toss theirs aside in favor of a new one. To keep my old computers running I load them up with distros such as Lubuntu or SliTaz.
Besides all things computers, my other hobbies include bicycling and automotive tinkering. I currently live in Italy and vacation around Europe as the opportunity arises.
