About
  1. Formal Education:
  • Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical, McGill, 1980)
  • Certificate - Human Resources Management (Algonquin College, 2007)
  1. Retired (Unix applications development and support for multi-national/multi-site self-service web services with site caching within design-to-manufacturing organization; CAD/CAM; Plastic Product Design & Tooling; CNC programming for turboprop engine parts; sheet metal assembly process planning for turboprop engine parts). All UNIX desktop/server experience started with HP-UX on HP 9000 s850 in 1984. Was server admin for 14 engineering workstations tied to that HP 9000. Later was sysadmin for 5 HP 9000 compute servers (Canada-based) tied to 3 Sun file/database servers (Canada-based) for design repository, lookup, component lineups, document conversions, and design file transfers to remote mirrors in 3 other countries: U.S., UK, France.

  2. Experience with Linux began with Ubuntu Dapper Drake, back in 2004. Disciplined and documented Linux Bash scripting for dependable Personal Desktop Linux implementation involving 4 disks, each of which have the following purposes:

  • 'Mega1' profile: [2 TB] primary Personal Desktop (production) platform.
  • 'Midi' profile: [500 GB] test bench for beta trials of selected Distros with preferred tools suite and analysis planning for deploying/migration onto 'Mega1'.
  1. Grappling with metabolic processes post-Myocardial Infarction (35% of heart muscle replaced by scar tissue).

  2. Grappling with metabolic processes and attempts at hormone replacement for full Thyroidectomy (full extraction of Thyroid due to cancer).

  3. Trying to locate portable/shareable Prolog predicate libraries to build interraction/simulation of metabolic elements and pharmaceuticals to improve/stabilize long-term outcome for conditions [3] & [4].

  4. Trying not to go crazy while being sealed in a "blockhouse" during this COVID-19 pandemic. Wait ... I've been driven to knit ... so I must be already crazy!

  5. Trying to learn FreeCAD with view of trying to come up with a low-cost, functional, micro-home design that could be deployed quickly for homeless people, either in limited community lots or on a larger scale as part of a more comprehensive delivery of shared services for such individuals. Success with getting non-profit organizations to pursue such proposals would encourage me to come up with plans that are slightly larger for low-cost housing for seniors, often forced to go into retirement homes because they can't find affordable facilities they could own.
