Where I Work

I work for ADM Systems Engineering Ltd.. I am the Winnipeg office. ;)

I used to work at NB Power, the provincial power utility. My job title was "Information Technology Specialist - Generation", which means I did stuff with computers for the Generation business unit.

My job involved several different tasks:

  • Technical contact, chief bottlewasher, etc. for PI historian systems from OSI Software;
  • System administrator for Sun workstations ("WEStations") in two of our plants;
  • System administrator, programmer, chief bottle-washer for four performance monitoring PCs ("Heat Rate PCs") in our Coleson Cove and Dalhousie plants (these PCs measure how efficiently the plant is being run);
  • System administrator for the Praut machines (Bull DPS-6000 minicomputers) for our Millbank and Sainte Rose gas turbine plants;
  • C programmer for a number of tasks;
  • General computer guru.
It was a good job, with lots of variety. I really consider myself a programmer, because that's what I like doing most.

The Car I Drive

I drive a 2014 Honda Civic.

My first car was a 1989 Chevrolet Cavalier that I purchased on December 11, 1989. I sold it in September 1999 with a little over 311,000 km on it and the new owner drove it for over 40,000 km before it finally died. It was a great little car.

My second car was my beautiful red 1999 Saturn SL1. I donated it in early 2014 after more than 14 years of good service.

We also bought a Kia Sedona van in 2004 to haul the kids around, and traded it in in 2011 for a Honda Odyssey... a much better van.

What Do You Wanna Do With Your Life?

I wanna rock!

(apologies for the Twisted Sister reference) I know it sounds pretty lame, but I want a pleasant, cheerful life with a lot of happiness.
