About Lake Ozark Web Design
In 1982 I saw an ad for the Timex Sinclair 1000 computer. It was touted as the first computer available for under $100 and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have one. I was hooked right off the bat with this whole personal computer concept. Looking back on those early days I recall reading lots of computer magazines and writing programs to do useful things, you know – things like typing instructions into the little chicklet keyboard for 30 minutes to get the screen to say “Hello Chuck, the time is 9:30 pm”. Those early days were a valuable learning experience. I remember many times sitting down at my computer after dinner, then thinking it must be time for bed, only to realize it was after midnight. From then until now I have been through quite an array of computers and am now using a 15″ MacBook Pro, a 13″ MacBook Pro, and a 24″ Mac. Yes, we have become an Apple family.
Timex Sinclair 1000 Where It All Started
I have been developing business applications and websites for myself, friends and some business associates since 1984. My programming goes back to the days of Basic, dBase and when I started developing websites everything was strictly HTML. Things have changed drastically and I now use WordPress almost exclusively for my development platform.
I have spent most of my career in the construction equipment rental industry in various roles including service tech, service manager, territory manager, branch manager, branch manager at large and regional 5S Champion. Throughout my career, I used computers and developed some interesting and useful applications for work and for our website business. I was lucky enough to retire in October of 2016 and my wife and I became full-time residents at the Lake of the Ozarks. After designing and building websites as a sideline for many years, I am finally able to devote 100% of my attention to Lake Ozark Web Design.
