I work for a consulting company here in Chicago, IL. My current project
involves mostly Java which makes my life a whole lot easier since I can
use my Linux laptop for the development. I use JBuilder Foundation as
the ide/debugger.

My previous project involved C++ and Perl. The fun part was that the
client for running they .com business on Linux servers so again, I was
able to use instead of Windows.

Oh yeah, I remember the big iron, the IBM 360 and the CDC Cybers. I
worked on the CDC for about 6 years, all in Fortran and Compass.

My first PC was an Atari 800, then came the first of a long chain of IBM
compatibles. Currently I have 3 desktops and 2 laptops. Luckily I have
enough room for all of them.
