I started in computers with an Electronics degree back in 1983 when Electronics meant troubleshooting to the component level. An average computer at that time cost around
$10,000. Understanding circuits and troubleshooting was the key to success. Now changing Boards are all thats needed to know.

In 2002 I went back to school for an a Associate of Computer & Networking Degree.
