Starting Out

Like anyone of my generation (did I just type that?), I'm struggling to figure out what I want to Blog about.

My first introductions to computers were through Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asimov.

I've been involved with computers since 1975. The first computer I owned was an Atari. I messed with TRS80s and in college my first computer was a DEC. I worked on Burroughs minis. I've worked on a multitude of mainframes programming in RPG, COBOL, Assembler (Macro and Command), CICS, Fortran.

I learned VB starting with version 3.0 and am now messing with both versions of .NET.

I want to start learning Ruby on Rails.

but my "day job" is as a project (I hope not pointy-haired) manager.

Now if I could just figure out what I want to be when I grow up...
