Stan Playfair calls himself a computer geek who has been playing with computers since the Commodore VIC-20 was state of the art. When something new comes along, he has to dig into it, see how it works and see how it applies to the real world and how others can benefit from it. He has been a programmer, a computer tech and a trainer.
