Baronpilot is a 54 year old retired technology guy. B.S.E.E. and MBA from USC. ATP/Boeing 737 type rating. Learned to fly in Hawaii, so I'm the rare pilot who is more comfortable over water then over land. Why? Because in Hawaii, if you're over land, you're close to a mountain. If you're over water, you can't hit anything as long as you're over 500 feet altitude.
I entered college in 1974 when we were still programming with punchcards. Microsoft was just another fledgling operating system.
I speak DOS and don't freak out at the command prompt. I've built a home computer with Windows NT server operating system.
Have an HP Pentium 2.6 GHz E5300 with Vista, 6 GB, blah blah....Costco special (Always buy your computers at costco. You get to return it for 90 days, so for that first 90 days you get VIP support.)
Also have an HP laptop (thought with a 17" screen it's a pretty broad lap) This runs Windows 7.
I'm planning my summer trip to Milan.
