I've been a computer hobbyist since before the IBM PC, and a professional programmer not too long after that. I've had experience with electronic repair, manufacturing, and testing of professional audio.

I tutored other students in Fortran before PCs existed, built my first computer from bare circuit boards and reject parts (S-100 CP/M system), and transitioned from stereo repair, to professional audio manufacturing at Dolby Labs, where I set up the automated functional testing for Dolby professional equipment. From there, I went into programming full-time as a C programmer for Mac presentation graphics systems, then to Windows C++ video programming. My last 10 years was as a C++ Windows software engineer for a corporate source code control system.

I'm now a Linux user, doing part time website development using all open source tools like Vim, PHP, Javascript/jQuery, etc for local businesses. I'm semi-retired, so I only do jobs that I want to do.

comment Why does this script stop/fail to continue in Ubuntu 10.04
I could be remembering incorrectly; it may well be that it is normal for the shell to terminate when the script ends, even without an exit. It's been a while since I've done anything except simple scripts using bash.

Correction: I meant subdirectory, not subdomain in my comment.

comment Having trouble with my virtual host set up of phpmyadmin with apache
Yes, but if you are only going to have a single documentRoot, then everything else must be a subdomain of that website, including PHPMyAdmin, such as site1.com/phpmyadmin. My example actually instructs you to have two document roots, the original from the root directory, and another from the site1.com/web directory. Apache looks at the name of the site to figure out which one to use.
