    Hello from Vancouver Island

    Just joined the forum - looks pretty useful.

    Currently living on Vancouver Island after too many years in Calgary (traffic = yuck!).

    Came to this forum while investigating hosting / co-location solutions for some companies that I do consulting for.

    I've been in the IT business since 1980 - came to it via Chemical Engineering and writing reservoir simulators (FORTRAN). Ended up working in pretty much every area of IT.

    Currently also teaching Java programming at a dintance-ed University.

    Cheers,

    -Richard

    The address says Ladysmith, but we're actually just south of the Nanaimo airport.

    I went to the Ladysmith church, right by dairy queen off of the main highway every week during that time. I have been in the small nanaimo airport (if you want to call it that!) 4 times now

    I really enjoyed the Ladysmith lights around Christmas time.
