So, if you've got a JOB let me know - anywhere, anytime is just fine with me
- but it looks like it's back to the church and the abandoned garage for a
while, so if you've got a Web Developer, WebMaster, Visual Basic 6.0, SQL
Server or MS Access gig DO let me know post haste.
I started on the Internet back in 1980, long before anyone ever heard of it
at all - they called it Arpanet back then (see an Internet History book or
text file) and have been a SYSOP/Webmaster for 15 years as well as a Data
Base Developer for 20 years - see my resume for full details.
