I have been playing the piano since 2nd grade (thats almost 16 years!). Nowadays, I only ever practice Debussy and Gershwin.
Computer programming/hacking since 8th grade. Thats when I bought my first linux distro (No one ever told me there was such a thing as FREE software!)
Professionally, my arena is industrial automation . All the major brands of PLC, Touchscreens, Drives/Servos; Lots of networking and systems automation; emphasis on electronics and technology integration.
As far as my secondary computer skillz, technically I am only an enthusiastic amateur (I did some freelance web applications in college although).
At this point, I am quite comfortable on nearly all flavors of Windows and most of the popular Linux distros (debian is my favorite). I dislike Windows, more so than linux, but since I use it more than 70% of the time, I know it much better than I like to admit.
