About

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 and I was born late November of 1964. Graduated from high school May 1984, see this image (captured from the senior yearbook) for how I looked back in May 1984. On another note about HS, I was also 2 years older than classmates. Someday may even share a more recent photo of myself.

Interests

Maintain this website and try to keep it running smoothly. There are some days that I may spend good part of the day watching some (or way too many) youtube videos, or simply go to websites and forums listed on the links page as much as possible, which I tend to keep activity to these websites and forums. There is the possibility of adding more from trusted websites and forums within those linked on the links page.

My primary computer runs the latest Bodhi Linux and its without any other operating system, just love it, as mentioned on the links page, its an excellent alternative to Microsoft Windows. I used Linux off and on since the 90's (do not recall exact date), there is still a lot to learn about it.

Have an early 2000's computer that runs Microsoft Windows XP Professional and is used primarily for Microsoft Visual Basic 6 Professional to create programs (see this page for ready to use programs). May also occasionally use this older computer to play older tomb raider games 1 through 5 along with bonus and extra levels. Every once in a while may even be used to play a custom level from the www.trle.net website and play custom levels that runs decently on this older computer.

I am always listening to SiriusXM Octane at home, except when watching youtube videos and playing tomb raider games.

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 to use.

College Education

Went to Altierus (formerly Everest and Western Business College) 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 to better myself. My grammar on the other hand, more than likely will lack some, struggled with this most of my life.

The Great Outdoors

When able to take a break from anything related to computers and internet, you'll find me on the road somewhere and experience whatever the great outdoors has to offer. Even if its several hours hanging around Beacon Rock State Park area 10 miles east of my location, or even few or so miles further east of Beacon Rock State Park and hang around North Bonneville Washington area, also with walking areas and interpretive trails.

Listen to SiriusXM Octane anywhere I may go as well.
