Jim (SS)
Software Developer (Senior)
United States United States
Wrote my first code in machine language on a navigation computer in a submarine. Actually started while in school in the early '80s. I've worked on simulation systems for military and NASA, embedded radio controls, medical systems, PDA business software, as well as a variety of other things.

I currently live in sunny Arizona, where we have 9 months of summer and 3 months of "Hades" per year. Believe it or not, you feel cool after getting out of the pool, for a while, even when the temperature is over 100 degrees.



Roger Wright
Engineer Retired
United States United States
BS Electrical & Electronics Engineering

Thirteen years experience designing & programming measurement & control instrumentation.

Retired two years ago from the Tribal Utility I was working for, designing power, water, and sewer systems for the reservation, and managing the construction and maintenance of same. Now working as a gun salesman and smith, as well as doing metal machining and welding for fun and too little profit.I recently bought 20 acres of land, and a tractor to help me develop it into a homesite and ranch. I was planning to raise lobsters, but having seen frozen rabbits on Amazon selling for $49 each, I may have to replan.

Programming experience using assembly, FORTRAN, BASIC, HP JCL, Prolog, Ada, Pascal, hpl, ; currently learning VC# and having "fun" with ASP.Net.

Avid darts player, though not a good one... Fair to excellent 12-string guitar player, depending on who you ask. Spare time spent fishing, reading, and playing with the neighbor's cat (see picture). Second degree black belts in Hapkido and Taekwondo.

Past President of the local Kiwanis Club, past Director of the United Way, and no longer a member of either.

Have held licenses as a Real Estate broker and Securities dealer - once ordained as a minister on a whim. My latest certificate was earned without any hands on experience at all - Yamaha Certified 5-Star Technician for motorcycles, ATVs, and watercraft. What next?

Raised in sunny California, before it became the Peoples' Republic of California. Relocated to Arizona to escape being homeless after peace broke out.


Objective: To learn all there is to know. I know I'll be disappointed one day, but I've made a good start, and the eventual disappointment is likely to be brief.
