First and foremost, I am not a professional pen dealer so I do not make a living from the
sale of pens. This whole thing is only a hobby to me, one that I enjoy
mostly because of the like-minded people I meet via this website and by
attending pen shows and my local club meetings.
I was trained as an engineer and my educational credentials are in the area
of energy conversion. I received the following degrees:
|Bachelors of Science from Princeton University, 1976.|
|Masters of Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1978.|
Professionally my work as an engineer is now a distant memory as I no longer
develop software for my company. Although I am still actively involved in
product development, my work today is primarily focused on sales and marketing
for my company's line of antispam email filtering products for corporate use.
product that includes many
advanced spam filtering technology capable of solving the spam problem by
filtering 94+% of all spam and making very few mistakes on the order of 1 in
1,000 messages. Its distinction is the Rules Wizard (a la Microsoft
Outlook) that gives email administrators the ability to create custom rules
perform specific filtering for inappropriate (non-spam) content.
|XE-Filter is a
much simpler product for use by small-to-medium sized organizations who
don't have a full-time email administrator on staff. Its primary
function is to filter at the SMTP protocol level to prevent
message reception from (selectable) banned countries,
blacklisted mail servers and senders. After all, if you don't have any
legitimate business from Antarctica why receive email from there? This
tactic has proven to be amazingly simple yet accurate, and our customers'
filtering average is over at 86% with a few dozen approaching 95%!|
Picture? Well, not exactly, but I like this one drawn by cartoonist Dan
Carter at the Michigan Pen Show in 2004.
After all these years, suffice it to say that I'm still flying high on 75s. :-)
