Been working in the Computer / Business machine business since 1979. Cut my teeth on the IBM personal computer (and clones) -shows my age- the first being with 64K ram and two 360K floppies. Was really cooking when I finally got my 5 meg hard drive. My first 40 meg drive took 2 hours to format. ...... needless to say I colud go over the old days ad nausium, but in the mid nineties I worked with Rogers@home to chase down and deal with malicious hackers and the like. I am vehemently opposed to doing nasties to other people's machines "Just because I can." attitude. I prefer to work with like minded people to repair the damage done by these miscreants. I found working with rogers rewarding, but time consuming and got distracted and rogers improved their network with better security. Now I am looking to get back into the game. Look forward to getting into the ethical hacker thing again.
