Yes I’m a geek, and yes I’m in a lab… a multi-hospital/clinic health system lab actually — the Laboratory Information Services part of it. We maintain 30 years of laboratory results on a little over a million medical record numbers.
Me, I’m a developer (by title anyway), chief system administrator, cook, maid, and general handyman (two days ago I was building shelving units…) I’ve been programming professionally for over 25 years so I’m what’s called an “old fart” under some really wierd setups – Coherent, PI/Open, UniVerse, UniData, Theos, Revelation, and others. I’m administer: HP-UX, Linux, Netware, as well as Windows servers. Databases: Sybase, MS-SQL 2005, Cache’, and UniVerse. Current programming languages of choice are: C#, Java, PHP and UniVerse BASIC.
I hold MCSE, CCNA, and ZCE (Zend — PHP) certifications, and too many years of experience for my own good.
