About Me

The Repository->About Me 

My name is Paul Carmody (pronounced "KARMA-dee").  I'm a generally happy and friendly guy in his mid 30's living in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago.  I'm married to a very loving, intelligent, peaceful woman, have a 1 year old and 5 year old, and work in Information Technology.

I earned my Bachelor of Music in Music Business from Elmhurst College, and my Master of Arts in Teaching from Aurura University, and studied Computer Science at the Illinois Institute of Technology.

Is everything on this site free?

Basically, yes.  I like to share my talents (?) with people.  I have a day job, so I don't need to peddle these wares for money.  Besides, struggling over "intellectual property" is a massive headache in the digital age.
