HAVE I HELPED?

 

I USED TO BE A FOOTBALL COACH AND I HAVE THIS GREAT RESUME....

I know, I know, what does John know about all these topics, and why should you trust him to work on your precious little PC.  Well, this whole field of home networking and PC help is pretty new, and the technologies are changing at a rapid-fire pace.  So you must believe that there are no experts who know everything in this field.  My experience is at the networking layer, and increasingly at the PC and workstation layer.  My experience is not at the application layer.  I cannot give you expert advice on how to use Microsoft Word or Excel, or any of the fancier applications.  OTOH I can get around any web application pretty darn good.  This includes browsers, email clients, anything that accesses the Internet.

I took a retirement offer from BellSouth Telecom in 2002.  I worked for Bell Laboratories and Bellcore before I worked for BellSouth, in hardware design and development.  Now I know some of you reading this may not even know what Bell Labs or Bellcore ....were... but maybe some of the old timers will.  My responsibilities at BellSouth were in managing/administering/troubleshooting the test labs used for various development projects, including ADSL and ATM services.  I became very adept at working with all the different management systems and OS's and networking technologies in order to keep that lab running from day to day.  I had a farm of PCs and Workstations networked together to support that effort.  That is where my networking experience came from. 

If you are interested, here is my resume
