Table of contents
Joel Durham Jr. has been a career computer person since the early 1990's, and computer hobbyist person since he was born. He has disassembled, rebuilt, upgraded, broken, fixed, modded, and built from scratch at least several hundred computers in his lifetime. On a typical day he will interface with four computers in his house, three of which he built from parts, and all of which he feels more comfortable with than human beings. He has been a freelance writer off and on for nearly eight years, and somehow has remained at least partially sane most of the time.
