It’s Joe Gadell’s Birthday!

April 3, 2011

While we rarely post birthday news on our news page, Joe is our President and we wanted to share a few fun facts about one of our trusted leaders (and the founder of GadellNet):

  • Joe got his first computer when he was 7 years old. It was a Five-Star XT 8088-10 running MS-DOS with a 14″ CGA color monitor – no mouse
  • By the time Joe was 10 years old, he had graduated from programming in Basic to C++ and was accessing BBS systems to message and exchange programs.
  • At age 11, Joe networked the new computer classroom at his school, an AppleTalk network.

Happy Birthday, Joe!
