Real Name: Rob
Location: Fort Mill, SC (on the boarder 10 min south of Charlotte, NC)
Family Situation: Married 20 years (and dang glad of it). One teenager: Max
Occupation: Data Analysis & Systems Administration (the company’s title makes no sense). Formally a systems engineer and applications programmer, but I/T has changed mightily since I joined the biz 30 years ago.
Pets: 1 cat: LB (short for Lard-Butt). I like cats; they're a stubborn as I am.
Favorite Food: Pie (the savory kinds) and of course you know that most Italian and everything Tex-Mex fits this category
Favorite Drink: Cold Tea (no ice, no sugar, no lemon… just good tea)
Hobbies: Guitar!!!! (Were it not for this, I’d have gone insane years ago. If I could get paid enough money to actually raise a family, playing would be the fulltime profession)
