James L (Jim) Zeeb
I've been a programmer since 1968. I learned Fortran in the Air Force, Cobol & PL/I at Electronic Data Systems, and PC software on my own. I originally created my company website using FrontPage, a Microsoft Office web design program. That program has been discontinued, so I am learning the latest web design tehcnology, HTML5/CSS3. It has been fun. I really enjoy programming for the creative aspect of it.
Around 1998, I recognized that the Internet was going to be a significant force and purchased the zeeb.com domain name. This website used to be the home of my consulting business, Pyramid Computing, Inc. You can still see that website by clicking on that link or my company name in each page footer. Since I am mostly retired, I have switched the focus of the website to the Zeeb Family. I created a Family Share site where we can share photos, announcements, etc., and anything else I can dream up. My little sister was here for Thanksgiving (2014) and we got to talking about her vision for the website and she asked for my help.
What I do in my spare time
I used to run 10k's, a couple of marathons and the short triathlons for 30 years until atrial fibrillation put a stop to that in 2007. Currently my passions are pickleball & golf. I play pickleball 6-7 times per week and I play golf 3-4 times a week. In the winter I play pickleball outdoors on the central coast of California near San Luis Obispo. In the summer I play indoors and out in the Denver area. It's a great game and keeps me fit. As for golf, fortunately, I keep improving, so it makes it fun. I win a little money which keeps me focused on the game. I also make my own clubs so I keep up on the current golf technology.
My wife, Marcia, and I spend our summers at our home in the foothills west of Denver, and we spend our winters in San Luis Obispo, CA where my son, Eric, and his family lives. This allows me to keep playing pickleball and golf all year round.
