Sr Applications Developer @ jp2code.net

Years ago, I left home and joined the United States Marine Corps where I was assigned the Military Occupational Specialty of Basic Metal Worker (MOS 1316). I loved building things as a welder, but could not see myself doing this until I reached age 65.

After my Honorable Discharge in the early 1990s, I used my G.I. Bill to go to school and received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Physics four years later.

Using a love of computers since I played on a Commodore 64 at 10 years old and two (2) C++ electives that I had taken in school, I began working in the computer programming field.

The recession following ENRON in 2001 left me working at a remedial job for a little over two years while I brushed up on my skills at a local community college in SQL and first learned what the new .NET Framework was all about.

I have had the pleasure of working as a Software Developer since 2003.

For a short while, I pulled in a little extra income by running a moonlighting business under the name Joe's Welding. Dangerous working conditions and non-paying customers prompted me to sell my mobile welding equipment about the time my son was born.

Today, I am exclusively a Software Developer. My language of choice is C#, and I enjoy working with databases.

Where I am not known by my code, I am known by my motorcycle: I am one of the few riders who loves the Harley-Davidson XR1200. Pictures of my modified XR are posted on websites around the world, and I go by the screen name JoeP on the XR1200 Owner's Group.

2009 H-D XR1200, jp2code

I think that's it ...but first I've got to watch the MS video "Learn It Now before It's an Emergency"

It's good to know I'm not going this alone, glendatron. Is your work using an ISA Proxy Server as well?

People have been let go for things like this already. It could just be the whole anonymous thing that "squillman" indicated. Also, we have VNC installed on most machines like "Sibster" pointed out. I'll point my manager in these areas.

I didn't know what to call it. It seems like hacking to me. Thanks for the clarification, though!
