Welcome!   After concluding two careers, the first in Law Enforcment and the second in Information Technology, I am now starting my third career, that of retirement. I only hope that this one will be as challenging as the first and less boring as the second.

I will be removing or archiving a majority of the material on this site, with the exception of the most popular utility scripts and some other odds and ends I have developed over the years. The articles, publications and tutorials on web development and computer useage authored or published by myself will also remain as a reference but, like me, are quite outdated and do not conform to the most recent applications.

Listed below is my work history along with the various items that helped me get to this part of my life.
