Hi! Welcome to my user page. My name's Paul and I live outside of Dallas, Texas. Later this year I will begin college at Austin College in Sherman, Texas more than likely to major in chemistry with a minor in computer science. Perhaps a double major... I'm a bit of a computer enthusiast and I collect old and unloved computers to put them to some sort of use. I program in Java and I also have some experience with C and C#. In my 'copious' free time I go on exploration trips around the back country and chase down radio antenna masts, hunt for geocaches and do a little writing on the side when school doesn't suck my soul out through a bendy straw. I would like to look into the future a ways and maybe have an idea on what I want to do for a living, but the best I can come up with is grad school and then teach, the business world just doesn't sound all that it's cracked up to be. I write for the chemistry and computer science workgroups however I can despite my obvious lack of expertise on the subject areas.
