Michael L. Whitt
Symsonia, Kentucky.

I am a 40-something computer geek from a little town called Symsonia about 25 minutes from the city of Paducah which is in the Western portion of Kentucky.   I use this domain off and on for blogging purposes.  I have been programming and messing around with computers since the mid 80s starting with programming in BASIC on the Commadore-64.   I grew up in a family owned and operated greenhouse/garden center business which my parents still run today (  I have been married to my lovely wife Kim for going on 16 years and we have one beautiful daughter who is currently 8.  I have lived in Kentucky, North Carolina and Tennessee over the years.   I like to say that my body is in Kentucky, my mind is in North Carolina, my heart is in Tennessee and my soul is in Texas (though I have never lived or even been to Texas).  

I have been working professionally in the Information Technology sector for over 20 years.  I pretty much consider myself a jack of all trades when it comes to IT related things, but freely admit that I am nowhere a master of anything. ;)   Over the past 20 years I have professionally been a Programmer, HP3000/HPUX Mainframe Operator, Network Engineer, Help Desk Analyst, IT Manager and Web Developer.  Currently I work for a major bank data processor in a PC support position with a focus on proprietary banking software.
My main hobbies are
* PC Gaming - Mostly Strategy and RPGs.
* Reading Science Fiction and Historic Nonfiction.
* Spending time with my wife and daughter.
* Writting small utilities in Visual Basic.NET, PHP and C.
* Messing around with microcontrollers such as the Ardunio and Netdunio.
* Studying Hydroponics and Aeroponics.
* Watching pretty much any Action/Scifi movie or TV show.
