A Little About Myself

I've lived here for about 6 years now. I've had a few jobs throughout the years, but eventually went for a B.S. in Computer Science because I felt like writing code would be a cool thing to do. After doing that for a little while, I came to ARC looking to enhance my knowledge and for a career change into something more security focused.

My Computer Experience

My first experience with an actual PC was a Commodore 128. This was way back in the day, mind you, when it was actually one of the current machines on the market. My father had purchased it for himself but I think I probably used it more than him, playing games on it whenever possible.
A few years later, my parents bought me an old Atari computer system, though I can't remember the exact model. I do remember that it used 5.25 inch floppy disks, the games took forever to read off the disk, and the disk drive was super loud, especially if you were trying to sneak and play games without waking up everyone else in the house.
Nowadays, I still use PCs for gaming. I'm not big on chasing the latest and greatest hardware; I will usually get a PC and a graphics card that is strong enough to run whichever game I happen to be playing at the time.

What I know about the Web and web publishing

I don't really know much. I've never taken any formal web classes, and I never really had the need to self-teach the topic because I've never had to create or publish any web pages. Mostly, I know that HTML and CSS exists to be the visual framework and structure of web pages. Beyond that, I never really delved into details.
