Information Technology

when you grow up with technology you just know these things

To start out I have been a user on a computer since the MS-DOS 6.22 days then later Windows 3.1 I grew alongside the OS(s). From programming QBasic to python to HTML, javascript, PHP, Actionscript, C++, and various scripting languages along the way. I had started coding when I was 12 and started networking computers shortly after for the purpose of organizing my applications and games through MS-DOS Batch files. My first computer was a compaq 386 with 32MB of RAM. My second, a 486DX4 from IBM with a blazing 100MHz. When I was younger I learned computers from a big brother mentor. I had attached myself to the computer with a tether and strived and still do on a daily basis to gain greater understanding of the machine. How the ram works and is comparable to an apartment complex, to how the processor handles requests. I have mainly been on the software side, I can locate and tell when a bad part is in the system via error beep codes that most BIOS manufacturers install. I have worked on many friends and families PC's and networks getting them to perform what they are needed to do. My third computer I saved my allowances for a year when I was 15, and purchased a Pentium 233MHz machine as my first computer I built myself. Currently I am on my eighth computer system and the best way to describe it is I fell in love with technology.

I have been the personal goto guy for my friends and family for computers and networking needs for over a decade. I helped poverty stricken areas of Saint Paul, Minnesota get their old computers working and online again. The computer is such a useful tool for education that I believe everybody should have access to this tool. I fixed people's computers for almost three years working for RGB Computer Repair. I performed many tasks for RGB and left on good terms.
