I'm into computers and tinkering around "under the hood" so to speak in a big way. I was raised in an environment where my father always fetched home another "broken beauty" that I would spend every waking minute outside of school meticulously labouring away rebuilding and fixing.
At seven years old I rebuilt my first working computer. (IBM PS/2 Model 80) out of several dead ones.
By eleven I was fully versed in DOS and by the time I was thirteen I had built my first token ring network. All with only the pieces and books my father fetched home.
I grew up with a passion for computers. I am technically minded and I thrive in an environment where I can use a computer.
I'm not formally employed in IT, as life took it's twists and turns. But I work in a lot of projects where I have the opportunity to showcase that I can tinker and do some pretty neat things.
I joined this site, as sometimes (lots of times) I do get stuck. I'm not formally trained, afterall, and there's millions of people who can show me new things, and reteach me old things properly every day... and truth be told, I can't wait to meet you all. :)
