+Dred Porter said "I FIRMLY BELIEVE ... God created everything in 7 days."

So you believe that your god spent an entire day creating the land, the sea and the vegetation on Earth.  He spent another day creating just the birds and aquatic animals.  Then he spent a day creating humans and animals.

Oh, and by the way, on one of those days he also created the sun, which is 1,300,000 times larger than the entire Earth that he spent 3 days on, the milky way galaxy which contains 300,000,000,000 stars roughly the size of the sun, plus 500,000,000,000 galaxies each containing roughly the same amount of stars, and some 15 times more dwarf galaxies each containing only billions of stars each, and all of that is just in the observable Universe - the entire Universe could be as big as 230,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 times 500,000,000,000 times 300,000,000 stars (not including the billions of stars in each of the 1,600,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 dwarf galaxies).

I know your god is omnipotent, but do you not see the scale of ludicrosity here?

Story
Introduction

Computer History

I am basically a computer geek. I love this stuff. I started out as a computer guy with my dad's old CPM machine back in the 80's and ran my own BBS on a 300 baud modem and an amber screen. Now... I am a news junkie, and consume multiple sources of media including TV News like CNN, HLN, Local News and more. Podcasts are my absolute favorite to keep up to date on most tech news by listening to CNET's, TWIT Network, 5by5, TED Talks. As well as many Linux Ubuntu, Redhat, podcast that explore alternate distros.  


Programming

I am not a programmer, although I did handcode a website with notepad from a template. I do know some Basic, and Visual Basic, HTML, CSS, and PHP, but I am a quick study and am running through the LISP program right now. 


Hardware:

I can not count the number of computers that I have actually built. But I manage about 60 on our logmein free account.


Networking: 

I know ethernet, RJ45, and relephony RJ11 and coax cabling, as well as wireless networking, I have even done some moding to existing routers to set them up as repeaters. I run a Dual Wan Router for load balancing issues and am familiar with NAT tables and other LAN set up nomenclature, I know how to set up Samba Shares, and turn an old Box into a NAS, and I have set up multiple servers with HFS, LAMPP & WAMP stacks to create some pretty unique applications for delivering Newspaper Clippings, and video to our clients.  


Operating Systems:

I know the following OS like the back of my hand, (WIN 3.11 LOL) Win 2003 Server, Win XP, Win Vista, Win 7, ubuntu and am beginning to learn Redhat, and Fedora and a couple of other flavors of Linux (puppy and DSL).


Social Networking

I have been a twitter user since the near beginning 2007, and have kept up with most all of the social networking trends. (google "videodred" and see what you find) I have utilized twitter and facebook for client service, sales, and support, I am familiar with dimdim, gotomeeting, join.me, logmein, gotomypc, and many other sites and networks that have come and gone. I know the marketing and customer support value, and rode the groundswell of the Social Networking trend to the point where I helped coordinate MS Conference on Social Media, and have attended every MS Pubcamp so far and was one of the original members of the Jackson Social Media Club.
