My name is Jerry.
I'm the manager at B&B Pawn here in Norfolk, and have been a native Norfolkian geek for 20 years now and I had the first dialup BBS with a CD rom drive back in 93 (to be honest I can't remember the name; it ran on a bunch of 'donated' Z248s when I was in the Navy; divorce #1). I've been lurking the list for a bit now and thought I would introduce myself. I met/donated/sold a bunch of stuff to the group back in December. I don't make a lot of free time so I haven't been able to meet many of you in person. I hope to make a pilgrimage of a few blocks to actually see the facility in person soon.
I have some skills with Atmel MCUs and general digital electronics, my analog skills have alas, mostly gone to rot. My friends and I have direct channel communication to Atmel for help. We have done some great work with at home PCB fabrication.
I also have an app on the Apple store that I wrote and published myself : Secure Channel: http://www.securechannelapp.com/ that I would love to port to android and other platforms with some help. I can help with anyone wanting to sell iphone apps or dealing with cryptography registration with BIS.
Currently I'm working on a cryptographically secure social network website and getting OpenPGP to the iPhone and Android like (Ipgmail and APG).
I consider myself an elder geek and have been delinquent in my duties of passing knowledge down.
Alas, with the times, I need to sell off some of my personal collection. Ethan said it was Ok, so here is some of it. I have not posted to Craig's List or Ebay yet but will have to in a few days (mortgage companies are a bitch.)
