Good work Pat. I like your interviews. We need real life experience in addition to knowledge from books.

My cousin who lives in PA found this interview on the internet and e-mailed it to me. I must say after reading it I was pretty impressed with Greg's work. You could say I'm bias since I'm Greg's mom. I do know how hard Greg worked on this project but most times when Greg tries to explain his projects to me I have no clue what he is talking about. You interview forced him to talk in "English" and helped me understand some of his work. Thanks
