Mike H. - Another Geek In Need... WebLog

So who is Michael J. Hamilton, Sr.? Candidly? I still don't know :)

Over a quarter century ago my wife joked that she was going to marry me, we'd have 10 children and live happily ever after.

Today? We have 9 children, 5 grandchildren, and I still can't get enough of coding!!! Yea, I know - I lost it a long time ago :)

I cut my teeth with the Apple II series some 22 years ago. I wound up working for Apple on the design of the UCSD (Unversity of So. Cal/San Diego) Pascal firmware, as well as firmware and OS pieces for the Apple IIGS. It really was a fun time - and certainly, those were the days!!! Alas, larger processors, and Microsoft. (I didn't say that.)

Today I enjoy the mild-mannered 8-10 hour days as a Software Architect and I get to play with most of the latest/greatest toys from MSFT.

At night I turn/burn in a frenzy to get my fix - writing code!!! I still love stemming out web sites, coding custom e-commerce applications, and plain and simple - WRITING CODE!!!

Revisiting my blog - which I've only been doing a little over a year now; visiting both the beta and public newsgroups for one product or another, and still trying to find time to be dad - well - in a word, I do not have a dotfuscator for that yet. But I'm working on it!

To all of those in the community that spend your time doing the same, I want to say thank you - and I mean that sincerely. I would not be where I am today if it were not for the many people just like myself that take the time to post their adventures. I have worked with 1 of the best organizations in the world insofar as teamwork and support goes, and I can also say that a great extension of that teamwork is the network of people I have met here and in many other - blogs.

Please keep up the great work - and know that you really are appreciated.
