About Tony Nelson


I'm a nerd from way back. I took apart and reassembled an alarm clock when I was 3, with only a couple of parts left over (but it worked). I started in electricity when I was 6 and electronics when I was 8. I started programming in High School. I built a computer while I was in the US Navy. I worked for the Kiewit Computer Center while attending Dartmouth. I got a Macintosh in '84 and started programming in Consulair C. Other than Programming, my interests include reading Science magazine, Science Fiction, Hiking, and my wife, Holly.
