Born in the Late Jurrasic in what is now Sikeston, MO. (USA), I grew up in Springfield, IL (in the shadow of Abraham Lincoln). In time I completed a B.A. with a double major in Psychology and History, and an M.Div. in Theology and Counseling. Networking began for me with Thinnet, Token Ring, 3270 (mainframe), and that wierd Twinax cabling for the IBM AS400. We rejoiced when 10BaseT hubs were invented - and were wild with joy at the introduction of the Ethernet switch. I earned my CNE on my own. Later I pulled together a study group for the MCSE (mine was NT4). With some practical experience, I managed to learn enough to pass the CCNA and CCDA tests - moving up the IT food chain as I went. I joined a Networking Support Center in Chicago that was being bought from Anixter by Ameritech (and later SBC, which still later became ATT - again). The job started with switching support, added routing, and then Cisco AVVID stuff. (Do you remember the ICS7750?) I worked there 5 years, then at Equivoice (small global business networking and telephony provider) for 5 more, before coming to Elmhurst Memorial. The oddest job I held (in IT) was teaching business computing in the USSR for two years - in Almaty (formerly Alma Ata), Kazakstan (formerly Kazakhstan), which was the capitol city at the time (but not any longer). I never left the USSR - it was gone when I returned to the US. An Eagle Scout myself, I am now the Scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 270 in Mount Prospect, IL. (because even after they grow up, boys like hiking, camping in tents, canoeing, building fires, and playing with pocket knives). That, the Prairie States Leather Guild (leatherworkers), and the ACES magic club keep me busy when I am not working.
