Dustin Harper

United States


I am an IT professional, working as a PC/LAN Analyst for a local winery. I have been using computers since the TI99/4A then the Commodore 64. I was introduced to Microsoft with an IBM PC clone with DOS 3.0 then 'upgraded' to Windows 2.0. I have been running a Microsoft based website ( since 2006, after narrowing it down from general PC interests. I have been helping people in various forums (from Microsoft's usenet groups to the newer Microsoft Answers), as well as in other forums. I really enjoy helping and teaching others.

My other hobbies are home theater, ham radio (KE7UOP), flight simulator and outdoors.
