A note about what I do

I have an extensive background in T1 and ISDN from 11 years working for Sprint.  Been with the state of MN now for 11 years and have experience in WAN/LAN technology as well as Quality of Service in Cisco IOS.

Questions are always welcome.

Those of you with iPads and Movi accounts should check out iDinsk! in the App Store.  It works with camera equipped iPads as well as those without.
