I put out cyber fires over donuts and camp fires. Polyphasic sleeper serving all timezones! Provider of live-help in real-time via video conference for technologies I have mastered and problems no one else can solve. Writer of re-brandable content management systems (every app has content, does it not?), re-usable apps & APIs, member of Mensa & Intertel, slayer of salmon. Human languages for fun, programming languages for breakfast. I left Detroit in the Dot-Com era to live deep in the north woods, I wear camo every day and kill my own food when I have to. I solve my own problems with grace and efficiency. I'll be happy to solve yours! My three most valuable skills: * Problem solving * Anticipation (of variables and user expectations) * Machine logic These skills, when applied to any challenge, design or technology stack, produce efficient and reliable results. What I enjoy most about Code Mentor: Utilizing my unique skill set to solve a diverse set of challenging critical issues for people in a bind. My most satisfying sessions solve very difficult and unique situations for those who have already exhausted their available human resources. I also really enjoy students who gain enlightenment from the deep insights that I can provide during our sessions. FAQ * No, I am not a robot. But my bots might be one day. * Yes, we have roads & electricity here, you should visit. :) * No, I will not travel anywhere , unless you provide a space ship or parachute. ** POLICIES ** * If you are dissatisfied with my service in any way, I will refund you in full * I do not generally charge for the "show & tell" phase of our session or random digressions * If your request rate is higher than my standard rate, our session rate will match your request rate * I try to make a record of all changes and be able to revert them quickly, but it is your responsibility to archive responsibly * CodeMentor has changed my life in very positive ways and I strictly adhere to their billing policy. All offline work must be paid for through CM at standard or agreed upon rates. * Time management is *not* my specialty. If you need your thing done, it's best to do it live in real-time. ;) ** SUPPORT TIERS ** Level 0: $30/15 - My weak areas / Voodoo+ / Students / First 100 Clients - Easy JS stuff Level I: $50/15 - Standard rate Level II: $65/15 - High pressure environments / General Wizardry + - Advanced AWS (recovery, security, etc) - Docker / Elastic Beanstalk / Lambda - Forensics - Distaster recovery - POS - High-level security - React - Pre-scheduled hours outside 12:00 - 21:00 EST - Advanced design (animation, meteor, 3D, crazy toolkit requirements, WP) Level III: $80/15 - Extreme pressure / Heavy Wizardry / Deep Magic + - Emergency response for mission-critical systems - Dedicated support through to resolution - Level II + Pre-scheduled hours outside 12:00 - 21:00 EST - Jump to top of queue! + http://www.catb.org/jargon/html/go01.html Moments: * 20160707 - My first session! * 20160817 - My 100th session!

I find delivering advanced technology coupled with automation to people of all skill levels to be extremely satisfying.

Over the past year I have grown to believe in Amazon and the AWS platform so thoroughly it is hard to even express. It is doubtful I will ever use any other service provider for /anything/ Internet related! http://iDoAWS.com http://twitter.com/iDoAWS (new)

I have been administrating servers since before the Internet came to the US public or I could vote.

Coding with Meteor makes me giggle with glee. I can do it with my eyes closed and I love every minute.. except for the ones waiting for meteor-tool to do whatever it's always doing. A problem I can solve, btw. :) http://meteorserver.idoaws.com - AWS AMI https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B01KVETP5A http://twitter.com/iDoMeteor http://youtube.com/c/iDoMeteor http://tuple.idometeor.com (game based on Set)

I have been writing x-browser compliant JS that worked on mobile devices since before jQuery was even thought of.

I use Mongo extensively with Meteor, and highly recommend *not* using an external DB host!

Security minded in everything I do, circa 1990. Pirated more software than you've ever heard of before Internet killed the BBS stars. Took out more underground pornographers than you can shake your Internet cane at. 18 years ago I evolved ethically and traded my gray hat for a white one. Prevention, detection and mitigation has replaced the rebellious angst and boredom which led to my more vigilante-style activities. In my life long career as a rock star cyber guru, none of my clients, local or remote, have ever had any security related incidents or misappropriation of intellectual property or trade secrets. I can provide real-world references which include high-profile criminal attorneys and clients in medical, financial and innovation industries.
Point of sale
- 25 years experience
I began working with point-of-sale systems as a teenager, fixing video store computer networks for video games. It quickly evolved to connecting multiple locations using RAS/DUN in Windows 95 Beta! I have fixed everything from fancy new-age mostly-working mobile POS systems to ancient things w/monochrome monitors & cryptic manuals missing important pages. I also build complete hardware & software solutions from the ground up for local businesses.
