About

This page contains some personal information, what is of interest, something about my web experience and education, what is done to rewind.

Personal

My location is approximately 12 miles east of downtown Washougal Washington on the foothills of the South Washington Cascades above the Columbia River Gorge. Lived in the Pacific Northwest (Oregon and Washington) most of my life. Born November 1964. Someday may share a recent photo of myself.

Interests

Maintain this website. Some days may spend good part of the day watching some (or way too many) youtube videos. Visit websites and forums listed on the links page as much as possible.

Following the progress of Haiku and ReactOS.

My primary computer runs the latest Bodhi Linux and its without any other operating system. Used Linux off and on since the 90's, there is a lot to learn about it.

Have an early 2000's computer that runs Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3 and is used for Microsoft Visual Basic 6 Professional (was for creating simple no frills programs). Or occasionally play older tomb raider games 1 through 5 along with bonus and extra levels. Also used occasionally to play a custom level from the www.trle.net website.

Web Experience

It all started back on March 01, 2002, teaching myself from various websites over the years, for many years it was mostly learning from such websites as W3Schools and PHP, before these two websites, it was from various other media that I actually do not recall what was used back then. Still reflect on W3Schools and PHP websites from time to time when I can not recall or remember how code should be written for whatever reason, there is always something in the need of learning anyway.

No matter how much is learned, this website will always be simple, and always be my DIY project and never change otherwise.

Education

Graduated from high school May 1984, see my senior yearbook image for how I looked back in May 1984. On another note about high school, was 2 years older than classmates.

Went to Western Business College (when it was called this) in Vancouver Washington from August 1998 to January 2000 for Operations Specialists. Distance learning through Penn Foster in Scranton Pennsylvania from January 2001 to April 2002 for Visual Basic Programmer. Really accomplished these two colleges for self achievements.

My grammar on the other hand, more than likely will lack some, struggled with this most of my life.

Break Time

Sometimes you just need to step back and rewind. So, when possible will get into the car and get away with only a flip-phone (no internet access) for awhile.
