He created an app to ease the writing of batch files. Damnest thing.
But, there was enough industrial demand that he pretty much worked from
home and kept the family fed. He did have to bag an Elk to fill the
freezer though. Nerds in Montana ALL carry rifles in the back window of
their pickup trucks. Since the place was a freezer for 10 months out of
the year, the local computer crowd was very social. When it's 40 below
for months, there is little else to do but play with your computer or
bag an Elk or snow ski.
