Subject: INTRO: Tosh

I've been participating for a while now, but I don't think I ever introduced

I'm Michael Tosh (I usually sign emails as and respond to 'tosh', although
on occasion I may use 'oreomike' as my user/nick as a leftover from decades
old account names.  It was a homage to the cookie, not the
informally-referenced ethnic group.)

I work as a software developer for Lockheed Martin in New Jersey onsite at
the FAA Technical Center.  (The next time you fly overseas, know that I
helped write/test/implement the Air Traffic Control system used to keep your
plane away from other planes, and Bugzilla is used to track any problems
with that system.)  I'm versed in many networking technologies and scripting
languages, and recently have become a Perl advocate for mini projects around
our lab.

I had created a highly-customized version of bugzilla based on 2.22.  During
that time I had learned much of the bugzilla flow and code, and now that we
have migrated to 3.0, I have found most of the customizations were included
and those that weren't I've been working to have included in newer Bugzilla
versions.  (Allow range searches of bug numbers, single-select custom fields
for selecting custom user roles, default CSV output to use customized field
names, cleaning up editmultiple for people with per-product editbugs.)

I enjoy helping others work through problems by responding on the support
list.  It is a good distraction from the monotonies of my real job.  I'd
love to participate more, but my level of participation is limited by the
workload of my regular job, so sometimes I can do a lot, and sometimes not
so much.  I also cannot access any IRC discussions from where I'm at, unless
I am working from home and have a second computer laying around to use, so I
can only be reached via email.
