About Jim Romaine

My interest in computers began in 1984 when I purchased one of the first IBM personal computers.  Lotus 1-2-3 and Wordstar were the two programs I used most of the time for work and for personal use.  I basically taught myself how to use a PC, which allowed me to get promotions at work since very few individuals knew much about personal computers at the time.

A promotion to Imaging Administrator at the Department of Economic Security allowed me to gain valuable experience installing and administering a document imaging system.  I later took a job at the State Compensation Fund where I was System Administrator for two document imaging systems comprising 15 million documents.

After retiring from my imaging job in 2005, my wife, daughter and I relocated to Prescott.  I have a BS in Business from Arizona State University along with over 30 years in the computer/IT field.  I taught technology at a private school in Prescott for 10 years, during which time I supported about 50 PCs and over 100 iPads. 

Feeling frustrated with Windows based PCs, and all their hacking/security problems, I bought my first iMac in 2010.  I upgraded to a new iMac in 2016, and also own an iPhone 7, iPad Air 2, and MacBook Pro.
