Netbadger is a combination of badger, and the short version for Internet. It is the nickname or handle, I took, when other people started using my original handle of badger. I was working with computers before the Web. I remember when the Word Wide Web first started, and there was only text. Mosaic was the name of the primary web browser in that time. In 1993 it was the first browser to actually show images in the same screen as the text. Click here to visit the old Netbadger site about "skinning" (modifying the looks of) the Windows OS.

A little history

My nickname has nothing to do with the mentally challenged meth addict from the Breaking Bad series. Especially since my handle predates the series by over 20 years. I was born in 1955, and graduated from high school in 1973. I actually followed in my father's footsteps and worked in the hotel and restaurant field. I had always been a science fiction fan, and when computers became a reality, I worked as a night auditor on the graveyard shift, and went to college in the daytime. I didn't graduate, because a couple of the professors told me, "You don't have to attend class, you can just take the finals." I would have still had to pay for all the courses, so I dropped out. After working for a few companies in the industry, I started my own business, writing custom software and building computers in 1986. On September 10th, 2001 I took over Web develoopment for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. I was there for five years before becoming disabled. I have stayed in Web design for my own projects from home. I find it interesting that in the end, I did some of the most advanced web programming for one of leading technological universities in the world, without a degree.
