    you asked us all, but what is phuhs ;-)

    carmel high school 20 years ago...in northern california

    we are going to have our 20th reunion and most of the guys are fat and the women aged much better and look great...from a safe distance ;-)

    then ten years of slacking and being a rock and roll musician then 2 college degrees and some grad school in tax law and entertainment business management, but now focused on computers...but not macs though

    again, congrats on your wife's completion of her education...i take it you met at the university of illinois

    college is the best place to meet a spouse...i met mine when she came to apply for a job in my freelance business...all the women i met in college, where i took classes at night while i worked in the day, were ten years older than me or taken so i had to wait until the working world...he he:D

    ps - not too many single or young women at school in the evening schedules...mostly working folk with families

    Ha, actually no, I met her on a beach in Florida. We happened to live near each other. We dated while she was in high school, and we chose the same undergrad/law school so we could get hitched.

    Right now, I am at Pascack Hills as a Junior and at age 16. And as sad as it seems, not one person excpet Yours Truly is using Macs.

    After my senior year I will be going to the University of Southern Maine, where there is a small computer lab, half full with G4s. I did notice one guy using a DELL Sour (not an Apple Power Mac TOWER) and he got fustrated with the mouse.

    My point is that I will probably enjoy being there late in 2003. :)

    Graduated in 1993 with a BFA in graphic design. Used that for a while, until I could break into the tech field. Now I am a Mac/peecee tech full time.
