My life, such as it is.
Born in Pittsburgh. Raised in Pittsburgh. I think I've been outside Pennsylvania for somewhere less than a month in my 25 years of life. Got my first computer at about 8, a hand-me-down C64 from my grandfather, and started programming at about 8 and three months. Finally made the switch to Windows in 1993 or so (but not on my C64), built my own system (also not a C64) in 2003.
Picked up a B.S. Biochemistry from St. Vincent College, tried to get a job, failed miserably at getting a job, went to Pitt and got my BSIS, and now I'm taking graduate school one day at a time. Eventually I want to unite my interests into a powerful, world-conquering behemoth, so I'm taking some joint courses with CBMI.
U. S. Steel. Designing in good ol' COBOL and making incremental upgrades to form fill-in menu screens. Yes, large corporations still use software from 30 years ago, and on several memorable occasions written by people who didn't believe in these new-fangled "arrays". I think this is a conspiracy by the current gurus to keep their jobs, since your average student hits the workforce thinking that COBOL was something the dinosaurs would look down on for being primitive.
