    28...and feeling a little old!

    Started out working in the hobby business...with anything RC. Worked from 93 to 02 in the baddest hobby store in Oregon. Around 2000 i decided I needed a long term career, not just a job, so I went thru the ASSET program from Ford and got both my Associates degree and passed my ASSET training, graduating with a 3.97gpa. I went to work for Ford and left my hobby job behind, and now I wish I was back to having fun in a nice air conditioned stress free store. I have learned the hard way that it is better to do what you want and get paid less, than to be paid more for something that you dont enjoy. Now I am stuck and I cant really change careers and still pay the bills.

    minnesota supercomputing insitute? I would guess that involves keeping a highspeed Counter-Strike server up and running on the Internet 2 connection.

    sounds like a cool place, what do you actually do there? And i assume you are on the Internet 2 backone, right?
