In honor of talk like a Pirate day earlier this week my daughter suggested I get a Priate name. Here it is:
My pirate name is:
Iron Sam Rackham
A pirate's life isn't easy; it takes a tough person. That's okay with you, though, since you a tough person. You have the good fortune of having a good name, since Rackham (pronounced RACKem, not rack-ham) is one of the coolest sounding surnames for a pirate. Arr!
I grew up in Silicon Valley (Santa Clara Valley), in California. I have been working in and around computers my entire life. I mean that part literally. I started out helping others build computers at about 8 or 9 years old. I had a steady hand with a soldering iron. I started programming in 7th grade. I am very interested in information, it's uses and abuses.
