Hello from Charles

  1. I am a professed computer junkie. I work as a COBOL Programmer on an IBM Mainframe at a community college. I build my own computers from parts I purchase on the Internet so I have run into a lot of the same problems you may be having at one point or another. In some instances building computers can save you some money, but mostly it is just a matter of preference and choice of individual parts.

    I am a family man that worked in a factory and was laid off; so, I went back to school at the age of 37 and earned an Associates Degree in Computer Informations Systems (CIS). I go to school at night to earn my Bachelor's Degree which I will finish some day in the not too distant future.

    My first computer was a Tandy 1000A. I use to build my own user screens in DOS. Things were simpler back then and the Internet was something most people wouldnt have dreamed of.

    Like I said I am a family man and I live in a Nuclear family Unit. You guessed it! Straight White male married only once and I now have 1 child in College. I built his computer too. My daughter will graduate this year from High School and hopefully go to college some where. Since I work for a community college I am going to try to convince her to go to college her for about 2 years for little or nothing where she can earn credits to transfer to some other college or university.

    COBOL.... eeeeeeew.
    I haven't looked at that since university.
    Is there still a lot of work in that area? I was hoping it had died completely by now :D

    Welcome to TechSpot, Hope you find the site to be as useful and informative as I have :wave:
