Hello, My name is Jim. I have worked as a software engineer for over 40 years. This has involved traveling to many places away from home, places such as Connecticut, Washington State, New Mexico, Arizona, Iowa, California, Florida, New York and even Europe. I worked for companies such as ASML, Rockwell Collins, Honeywell, Woodward Governor and Diehl Aerospace. I spent 3 years in the Air Force teaching mainframe maintenance.

I have approximately 20 years experience writing 'C' for embedded applications (mostly in the Avionics field) and have passed company qualification tests on the language.
I have a BSEE from the University of Missouri (Missouri S&T) in 1967. I have worked in computers ever since, mostly in embedded real time software.
Very few folks use DOS. When it was a popular operating system, I used it quite a lot. Now, I occasionally use virtual DOS in command windows.
I have taken logic courses at the college level. These focused on karnaugh mapping and other boolean logic simplification techniques. I have worked with computer logic for over 40 years. Thus involves combinations of circuitry to solve particular problems. This translates directly into "word" logic problems.
Even though my degree is dated (1967) I have a Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. As I have not used the degree very much other than to examine schematics in order to write embedded software, I do not feel qualified to tutor advanced subject matter.
