Resume Note:   I have been a consultant since 1979 and have owned and operated S. Robinson Computer
               Consultants Ltd. Work history reflects onsite contracting since 1980. Date gaps while
               consulting are sabbaticals where I was able to go cruising aboard my yacht. In 2002 I semi-
               retired mostly doing work for friends.
