Most challenging thing I ever did ( IT related ) = Compiling drivers for a patch Linux Kernel source 1.0 for a Adaptec SCSI controller card on my pentium 90mhz system. A found a developer in Belgium that helped me to test his drivers thru Compuserve. And 8 hours later we had a working installation. ( He built the drivers, but he didn't have the SCSI controller card )
Most challenging thing I 've did in life = Manage not to be killed while in the USAF Communication Systems groups. I seen some stupid things and ever part took of a few stupid activities. It's a miracle that I didn't die in Korea , or gotten somebody killed.
