    • MS VB/Access/Excel in-house development to maximize internal efficiencies
    • UNIX based Oracle DB and Application support- local and remote upgrades across several sites in different time zones.. scripts and more scripts.. any screw up or excess downtime and yer talking tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars down the drain not to mention the utter shame

    • Had to fire one contractor cause he lied about his abilities and we didn't catch it in the interview.. we couldn't use him yet I felt kinda bad only because there was a green card issue with him and he literally begged
    That ended 10 years ago in Boston, when I started Retirement v1.0 in 2000.. the same year everybody thanked the Lord Itself when all the computers in the world DIDN'T explode when the new millennium hit.

    Now I am getting back into programming.. need to restock cash pile. Lookin to build some Minecraft plugins as a fun way to get my skills back up to snuff.

    Eventually Retirement v2.0 will commence. Hopefully sooner rather than later. Praised be Ganesh.
