I’m a retired (as of January 2012) computer programmer that specialized in mainframe and Web based reporting applications.

In the mid 1990’s I became interested in Web technologies; taught myself HTML, basic JavaScript and PERL. I leveraged these skills to convert my business partner’s batch reporting applications to a menu driven Web based application.

About 2005 I became enamored with Linux, more specifically Ubuntu and now Xubuntu. I have two desktop computers that run only Xubuntu, a laptop and a netbook that are dual boot – Windows XP and Xubuntu. I keep Windows around only to keep my Tomtom GPS unit updated – otherwise I’d ditch Windows altogether.

Since retiring, I decided to rewrite the MyHogan Web page. Intially I rebuilt the Website using Restructured Text and a Linux utility called “rest2web” to transform the Restructured Text into HTML. It worked really well. However, “rest2web” is no longer actively maintained/supported. So I rebuilt the MyHogan web page a second time in PHP. In 2016, I decided to rebuild/redesign the Website yet again. This time I used WordPress.
