30 years ago did graphics device programming on $100K workstations and IBM JCL. 10 years ago did Borland Pascal applications. Since then mostly scripting with BASH and a little perl. I deal with Java from the outside by installing and administering Java apps. Sorry but no known artistic tendencies.

MFTApp: What type of apps would you like to build as a team?

Not sure. Keen on home automation or productivity apps.

MFTLng: What computer languages are you experienced with?

PL/1, Cobol, Pascal, Ada, Perl, BASH and other "shells". UNIX user-land tools. A bit of 'C' and Python. No Java so far.

MFTITB: Please describe your I.T. background and your general background.

Almost 30 years from mainframes to micros. I.T. is my job and my hobby. I am currently (5 years) employed by Mercury Insurance as a senior Linux Systems Admin.

MFWPic: DOES YOUR MAIN/FEATURED PICTURE(on this ur group-profile) MEET STANDARD --REQUIRED at all times so required be a member & attend. OR IF u've good reason for a waiver(possible but granted rarely), please tell it here.

Yes. It is a month old when I had a goatee. I may have one again in future.


Lifelong geek. Gadget and technology addict. Linux Sysadmin in my day-job and Linux enthusiast in my off-hours. I do scripting full-time now and used to be a software developer.
