Jay Ts started using Unix in 1981, writing Bourne shell scripts and programming in C. He had an account on a 7th ed. UNIX system running on a VAX11/780 in the Caltech High Energy Physics Department, and helped to develop an early version of the software that is now Mathematica. A bit later, he worked for the Caltech Computer Science Department, NASA/JPL, and the USC Information Sciences Institute. His first serious personal computer was a 386 PC that he built in 1988. He installed ISC Unix System V/386 and started a Unix consulting business. Jay has been using Linux since 1996, starting with Red Hat and switching to SUSE/openSUSE in 2003. Nowadays, he is a competent C/C++ programmer and Linux system/network administrator, along with knowing many programming languages and other technologies. When he is not busy with computer technology, Jay might be designing analog electronic circuits, playing his electric guitar, or hiking in the wilderness near his home.
