First introduced to hangman on a mini computer playing the William Tell Overture, Robert is a very "old?" school hacker.

Robert discovered Linux after completing several years of much needed therapy overcoming the trauma of programming using punchcards. Eventually, he focused his open source activities on PostgreSQL and has since then worked in everything from mom and pop companies to fortune 50 companies.
