I am a career chemist and lab manager by day, and a tinkerer, troubleshooter, and problem solver in my spare time, whether I'm working on my cars, computers, or anything else.
I bought my first Dell, a Dimension 4100, in 2001 and shortly thereafter joined the Dell Community Forum to learn more and help others. I also am a long time participant in TechIMO.com (using the same screen name), where I peruse the technical forums to help other Dell owners.
My current desktop is a Studio XPS 8100. My work laptop is a Thinkpad T420.
I enjoy working on and learning about cars. My everyday vehicle is a 2004 Honda Accord with 260,000 miles that I hope to get to 500k before I retire. And I spend a good deal of time keeping my daughter's 2004 Civic with ~300k on the road.
My wife and I have been married 30 years and have two grown children. But we're still working on the empty nest thing. :)
