Robin fell to Earth around the time Texas Instruments announced its first silicon transistor. She has a BS degree from UC Davis in botany ("renewable natural resources") and loves gardening.
Her first job out of college was with Ferry Morse Seed Company where, praised for solving a computer problem one day, she found her true calling, and went on to re-write their seed germination reports in RPG.
I'm ex-Navy, a technical writer-illustrator with an electronics engineering background.
Born at the height of the vacuum tube era, I was almost four years old when John Bardeen made the first point contact germanium transistor. I built my first "computer" from production reject transistors my Dad brought home from his job at Motorola and parts I de-soldered from cast-off radios - TVs weren't yet priced for the working class.
After a long career in electro-optical systems field engineering and some attempts at entrepreneurship I retired in 2008 or so, and now just maintain our place and develop scenery for X-Plane.
