I am an IT consultant for a large multi-sited law firms. I deal with technology from microsoft networks, VMWare, Cisco Voip, Citrix Xendesktop to installing databases replicated across the WAN for failover. I live in San Francisco, I work out of San Francisco. I dont own a Mac, iPhone or iPad. Though I grudgingly work and support fixing them on occasion. I need things to work and not just pretend that they do. I invest in tech stocks and certain Asian mutual funds. I trade on a monthly basis but will always jump at an opportunity for a short sale if I see it. Always know the products you are trading, not just the numbers.
