  • Informative Article. I am very glad to read this excellent post. Thanks by this website where people get many essay ideas and inspiration. Thanks

  • When I was a lot younger than I am now, I took a lot of computer courses over the summers.  I was making the aliens from the space invaders game move across the screen and drop down a level.  I was painting the Italian Flag with my initials on it, I was trying to do "Another Brick in the Wall Pt2"  via MIDI in the 80's.

    So when I graduated HS, what did I do?  I majored and graduated with a degree in business and organizational communications.  Of course I couldn't find a job to save my life so I hopped back into computers. 

    I guess I should have listened to the 5th grade version of myself a bit more when I wrote a paper that I wanted to work with computers when I grew up.  My parents were nice enough to save that for me, and presented it to me when I started working in IT.

  • I started out taking Microsoft Office classes then went on to take AutoCad classes and then onto light VB programming then I thought lets see how I make out in Network Systems Administration and here I am. I was a basic Receptionist turned into Engineering Manager using Cad and then onto Network Admin.
