Goss? (Probably not, saw a P-E press in one of those pics- Not Quad's favorite type)
Independant construction/machinery contractor?

If you've been in the Sussex plant, you most likely ran into my brother,
plant electrician Jeff "Numby" or "Numbnuts"

I own Oak Creek North Equestrian Center, and I am probably the only CEO in the world that doesn't make any money, So to supplement my Vette habit I work for at&t. I'm the one the IT boys call when they break it.

You can check our website (which could stand an update) here.

Of course our users have a different website where they do their actual work, but it requires logins and passwords and stuff.

Not half as cool as yours...kinda like the TV show but a LOT less exciting. Here it's mostly young kids getting in trouble for doing stupid things 18-21 year olds do. But occasionally we get a "real" case that takes some serious work.
