EXPERIENCE:

1998 to Present: PC - Handy Andy
Semi-Retired - Self Employed

Description:

My objective is to make house-calls and tutor users on the "care and handling" of their PC. The majority of my clients need Internet & Email tutoring. Because of my background, I have done - and continue to do - much more than this; hardware repairs, reformats and re-loads, upgrades, consult for new systems, prchase and install same, install/maintain LAN's, etc.

I believe that "The answer to the question is no until you ask."

I have been the primary "presenter" for the Englewood Computer Users Group for the past two (2) years.

I am an active member of the Englewood Chamber Of Commerce.

For the past 15 months I have supported two small businesses on a regular basis. I do what ever it takes to keep them operational and prepared for disaster.

I have taught non-credit courses (Introduction To Computing) at the Manatee Community College.

Received new hardware; installed/setup, tested, delivered, and transferred old files to their new PC. Installed and setup new printers. Created and maintained a database for our growing computer inventory. Notified vendors of hardware failures and effected repairs. Ordered all computer related supplies for the department (faculty, staff, Lab). Wrote the specifications for the departmental DEC 5000/200 Ultrix computer that was to become the replacement for the PR1ME computer (as a Mail and WEB-Server). I was the Systems Administrator for this system and created backup procedures for our critical PC's to the DEC and then to backup tapes. I became the departmental network administrator, and was responsible for determining the need for personnel to effect their installation. I was given a large room, a small number of used PC's, and some used tables and chairs and charged with creating a Lab for the Graduate students.

I maintained an attitude of service to my clients (faculty/staff/students).

1987 to 1990: Systems Analyst I
Economics Department, Ohio State University

I had complete responsibility for the operation and maintenance of the departments PRIME 9955. There were 186 registered users of the system and our peak load was about 35. I was responsible for the setup of new user accounts-with training, installation and repair of all terminals (75 units) and all Laser printers (6 units), liaison for Campus wide user accounts, backing up the system, ad infinitum.

1985 to 1987: Computer Consultant
Applied Programmes (Proprietor),
Worthington, Ohio

When REA went out of business in September 1985, I began full time with a business I had started in 1977. I specialized in PRIME computers. FORTRAN is my primary language and maintenance programming my expertise. I also wrote original code and developed operating procedures to make the user environment more friendly. During this period, I had complete responsibility the operation of a timesharing service (Capital Time Sharing), and I also had a contract for software maintenance with a large company in Wilmington, NC (nuclear related). My company supported a public domain conversion of nuclear software on PRIME. I taught FORTRAN 77 at Heidelberg College during the spring semester (1987).

1979 to 1985 Manager
Computer Innovations Corporation
(A division of Ridihalgh, Eggers & Associates)
Ridihalgh, Eggers & Associates, Columbus Ohio

Our business was engineering support for in-house users and timesharing to the general public. My major efforts were directed to converting large FORTRAN programs (related to the nuclear industry) from IBM and CDC mainframes to the PRIME system. Direct Access techniques from IBM were simulated by my own system using PRWF$$ for speed and disk efficiency. I have written a complete user accounting and billing system using FORTRAN and INFO (Henco, Inc.). Over the years I have written at least 50 user oriented utilities. I was also responsible for the total operation of the REA PRIME computers (400, 450, and 750). Responsibilities included: day to day operations, documentation, training of personnel, training new users, scheduling maintenance, installing new terminals and wiring, purchasing supplies, installing modems and multiplexors and marketing the timesharing services. All software was written or directed by me (I supervised two employees for approximately 2 years).

1977 to 1979 Senior Systems Analyst
PRIME Computer, Inc.
Cleveland, Ohio

My major contribution was in the area of pre/post sale technical support, installation of new systems, customer on-site training of the basics of their new system and installation of RJE communications systems (IBM/2780, CDC/UT200, and GE/GERTS). I received the Outstanding Systems Analyst award at the 1978 kickoff meeting in Lake Tahoe.

1973 to 1977 Senior Scientific Programmer
The General Tire and Rubber Company
Akron, Ohio.

Responsible for the development of software for Structural and Statistical Analysis (IBM 1130, IBM 370, and PRIME 300), and the development of user interfaces to these machines. Major contribution: conversion of the NONSAP structural analysis code from CDC to IBM. Extensive modifications were then made to accommodate a non-linear tire analysis. Output data from the IBM/370 was routed to the PRIME and displayed graphically by software written by me.

1969 to 1973 Digital Analyst
Bell Aerospace Company
Buffalo, New York.

Contributing member of the Structural Mechanics Programming Group. Responsible for analysis, programming, coding, verification studies and documentation of software (IBM/360 and CDC/6600). Principal programmer for: BAC report #7363-95600, "Optimization Program For Large Scale Surface Effect Ships" (air cushion vehicles) [1970]. Complete responsibility for BAC report No. 247-956003(& ..04) "Development & Application Of Supersonic Unsteady Consistent Aerodynamics For Interfering Parallel Wings". Both a Programmers manual and a Users manual were written [1972]. NASA Contract NAS-10880 generated a program and a report: "Evaluation & Test Of Finite Element Technique For AIC Generation" [1971].

1964 to 1969 Instructor of Physics
Heidelberg College
Tiffin, Ohio.

Responsibilities included teaching a variety of courses and labs at all undergraduate levels. I contributed to the introduction of computing (via time sharing through GE) in 1966 -1968 and taught courses in the BASIC language. I attended Argonne National Laboratory weekend school after which I introduced a course in Electronics, complete with lab, experiments, and equipment, most of which I assembled from Heathkits.
