Welcome to my new world

Date January 31, 2008

Ok, I’ve been here on cyberspace since 1992 when my father gave me an old 8086 from his office, and I thought I was so cool. I sat in the basement of my parent’s house with my little modem and prayed that no one picked up the phone. The blasts of cold air from the AC above my head kept me awake, and I sat there playing with MOSAIC making my first webpage and dialing into local BBSes. Now I am here, 16 years later and I’ve made my first Word Press site. I have another site on TypePad called Nooccar. That site is a family blog where my wife and I write about our life in the south west. Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, our move to Phoenix was an eye opener. We go back home at least once a year, but we’ve truly begun our lives out here.

If you’ve been to this site before, you know it use to be a static information site for my high school classes. I then started teaching at the college also, so I added that information here. Before that I had a website with my original writing, which I’d like to include here. I do teach high school so I am a role model, so I need to keep some balance between my professional and private lives. But I have always envisioned a website that could take my love for English, writing, and technology and mash them all together into a usable space. Here you will find comments about my current classes at the high school or college, or you may find links to cool technology I am using. I may randomly throw other stuff in, too. If you want static information check out the links across the top. You want to see new and fun stuff, click on information on the right side. If you want to leave a comment, please do so below. I Love comments! If you want to know more about this site click on “ABOUT” up above.
