  Mark Rode 
   Senior Partner /
Mailing List Owner
Mark operates a consulting and development company in Southern California and is a graduate of the University of California. Mark has been fascinated with computers ever since he played a game of tic-tac-toe on a mainframe the size of a building. His first PC had no hard drive, less than one meg of ram and loaded its data from an audio cassette player. He has been captivated by PCs ever since.

Jose is actually a poet, and finds himself bemused at being a member of the NoSpin moderator group. A native of Cuba raised in Miami, Jose is a graduate of Professor John Chin's classes in computer repair  and is currently a technical support engineer.   In his non-existent spare time, he owns a company that makes high end computer systems for power users. With his gentle wit and outlook on life, Jose finds life as a Nospin moderator diverting, to say the least.
