I started with computers about 24 years back. First PC was a Commodore VIC 20 and my “Mass Storage” was a cassette tape deck from my stereo gear with a home made A/D converter built from a 555 timer IC. I have worked at a large ISP for several years www.inreach.com based in Stockton California, I was there with the founder John Keagy in the 95-98 time frame when it went from 2,000 subs to 30,000 subs. I ran the support desk for a while and then the IT support including the adoption of RadiusNT form IEA software that logged dialup use form the modem banks to the tune of about 6 million SQL database records per month using SQL 6.5. For the last 4 years I have been working with a Billing and Ops’ system company www.internetsupportsystems.com in florida; I also do custom stuff for different folks in the local area. I have spent many hours with many levels of engineers from Cisco and Motorola. For a while I was on the IETF “Anti Spam Working Group”. I heard a lot of ideas about spam and was able to make some good points about the problem of the internet and the way things work.
