    To be honest, I don't even remember how I wound up here./img/vbsmilies/smilies/redface.gif   I just wandered in one day and made myself at home./img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gif   Looking back I think I was sous at a hotel property when I joined.  That dates back to about the time I first really "discovered" the net.  I'm a moderator at a couple of audio forums and have been there for 10 or 11 years.  Must have joined them shortly after I started building my own computers.

    It's been quite a ride!  I left that sous job for a better paying job at a crappier restaurant.  Then I quit there in disgust over the food and went back to school, just working as a line cook.  Taking that step back from management and just cooking reminded me of why I originally started working in restaurants.  I'm still working on my degree but once I have my Bachelor's in business administration I'll probably jump back into the saddle and take a chef job (probably within the company where I work now- I worked as a chef at a couple places for them and really like the owners).
