I'm a Glass Explorer. I'm curious about a number of things, mostly having to do with technology, but I also find myself chasing rabbits when other topics catch my eye.
I make a living as an IT professional. Currently, I manage software development projects for a company I do not care to name. I started out as a Programmer and along the way have spent time as a DBA, Network Engineer, Systems, Analyst, and Project Manager. I think that range of experience has given me a very broad and in places, deep understanding of the capabilities and limitations of computers and applications.
I like to find out how and why things work or don't work. I'm an analyst by inclination.
I also spend a fair amount of time cooking. I serve as the pit-master for my annual family July 4th get-together and my specialty is Smoked Brisket. In my next life, I'm going to have a BBQ joint so I can spend all of my time pursuing what has become my passion.
I've been described by an old High School teachers as "The guy you want around when things get ugly". An old boss said I had "A silver tongue, a golden touch, and a mind like a steel trap". Others have called me things that aren't suitable for public display. Oh well. Can't please everybody.
Obviously, anything I might say or post reflects only my personal opinion and not those of anyone I know, am related to, may be acquainted with, passed in the hall, or may be associated with as an employee. Even my dogs disavow my opinions so don't blame them if I say something you dislike or disagree with.
