My name is Julio but you can call me J. I moved in March from L.A and work in the tech field. When people ask me why move since I had a decent gig and place to live in L.A my answer is this: "Simple, people from all over the world come to L.A to work in the Entertainment Industry, Movies, TV, etc. If you want o be in the show biz then the City of Angels is the place to be. But, if you are in the Tech Field and want to be in the Mecca of technology then The Bay Area is were you want to live".
I like to tinker with stuff just for fun. I've done several projects over the years, some are practical that solve real problems, some are just for my own amusement. I never call myself an expert in anything because things change so quickly and there is always someone that knows more. I've been working with Windows since the DOS and the Windows 3.11 days. I've been working with Linux since 2010. My first programming language is BASIC on an Apple IIe and I am currently trying to learn Python. My 1st project was fixing a simple video connection issue on my NES when I was a kid and one of my last projects was modding an original Atari 2600 to work on a modern TV. I made old legacy applications (we are talking NT here) work on Windows 7 for my company and I've made Pikachu FLY and do EARTHQUAKE on a couple of games. Lately I've been looking at messing with other stuff aside from computers since my work takes a lot of computer time, so I also mess with aquariums and terrariums as a hobby.
