 Additional Information
What are you doing now:

I'm currently working as a network engineer providing support for about 38 types of equipment. Some of them are cisco, alcatel, juniper, nortel and lucent devices and cover IPlink, IPVPN, Dial Access, DSL, Firewalls, Concentrators, Contivity Clients, ATM, MLFR, Frame Relay, PIP, Transaction Data Pkt, Telco Ckts and the list goes on. Customers range from Govt, Fortune 500 and small mom and pop businesses.

I use my spare time to renovate an old Victorian home here in Lancaster, Ohio and work on homes I purchased to rent out. My next project is a total renovation of one home that had sustained fire damage and should start in October "07". Big project, but fun work.

A new chapter starts in my life at the age of 44, and still feeling like 28ish.
I have been given the opportunity to enlist in the Ohio National Guard, and have accepted a position as a 74D (WMD NCO). 
I will keep this chapter updated on my profile and if you have any interest in the Guard, check it out! You may be surprised on what you can get!!!

I've have just finished Chemical School in Ft Leonard Wood, MO. I arrived on the 8th of Aug 08 and graduated on the 21st of Oct.
I'm also hoping to see a full time position open up shortly after school so I can finally be back in the saddle for the duration of my (atleast) 20 years.

Other Comments:
I've been with the company starting out with UUNET then turning to WorldCom then changing the name to MCI and now that Verizon bought us out, I'm happy to be with them.
