Database conversions and programming, networks and software development, Android, Linux, C++, fetchmail scripting... Computer work at home makes me happy. It's a good thing I do it for a living, also. Well, I actually do more Project Management at IGT anymore, but I try to keep up my coding at home. Even this web page is lovingly hand-written HTML. Woot!
Bravestick is the brand I've been using for my personal professional and volunteer work. I've done both software and hardware projects, and I've documented a few of my personal projects here:
Posting public pictures on the web is a tricky thing, but I've been posting more and more. In fact, I've got a whole web photo album with pictures for random strangers to browse.
If you're looking for genealogical information, I've been out of it for a while, but there is another web site which has a lot of *rner family information. I have no affiliation with them.
Dad was a volunteer fire chief, and I try to do what I can to help the community. Washoe County has a very active CERT Team, and I'm on the advisory board, and I'm a team leader for the Sparks team which meets monthly at Sheels. Oh yeah, I do the webpage also.
Jayde and I attended Career Day at Dilworth Middle school today for Junior Achievement, and talked to the kids about Engineering, jobs, and "making stuff". We had the head from the Terminator, which definitely caught the attention of the kids, but we used that to talk about how we make this, along with all of the electronics and mechanical devices we build, some we brought as props. Univision also filmed us (above), and I talked about Engineering careers. The kids were great, and Jayde and I had a good time.
