      Unix Webhosting SA

      Well, being as I am a Unix systems administrator with IBM contracted to a large credit card corporation. I don't think any forum related to my job would quite fit in here!

      But the more info made available here the more I am willing to contribute where I can and learn as much as I can!

              Mostly Decorative Painting with the addition of woodworking...i.e. Trim and Molding, Cornices, wall frames installation as well as hobby for home. I'm in the middle now of severall things now.

     if anyone want's to see some of the work.

              You'd be surprised at the amount of wood working tools I'm all started with brushes and paint, though I still faux paint quite a bit of wood
