About the Author
Alan Wilcox is a typical engineer. Well, not quite typical, because every engineer considers himself a unique one-of-a-kind authority concerning his particular specialty. That expertise can, in fact, range from computers, to electronics, to widely divergent fields depending on how interesting the topic might be. An interest and a passion to study make it all come together. He is a licensed Professional Engineer in Pennsylvania, and as an electrical engineer specializes in computers, electronics, and software. That, however, doesn't hamper his expressing opinions on other topics. And, as you might suspect, those other topics are the subject of this book. During his career in electrical engineering, he worked in a number of engineering positions and also taught at Marywood University (Business), Bucknell University (Electrical Engineering), and Lycoming College (Statistics). For 17 years he taught a variety of technical courses in computers and programming for Learning Tree International in the US and in Europe. While at Bucknell, he wrote four engineering-design and computer-design textbooks. One of the books was on computer hardware design using the 68000 microprocessor, the CPU used in the Apple Mac during the mid-1980s. After years of using the PC, he now uses an Apple iMac for most of his work; PC software runs on a Windows virtual machine using Parallels. Now retired from full-time engineering, he repairs and tunes Elecraft amateur radio equipment; he is a ham radio operator, call sign W3DVX. In addition, he has helped Adopt A Boxer Rescue by doing their web-based MySQL database programming to provide efficient processing of adoption applications. He recently started an editing and publishing business at WilcoxPublishing.com. Alan was an active member of Congregation Ohev Sholom of Williamsport, Pennsylvania, where he served on their Board and participated in weekly services. As Assistant Gabbi, he helped conduct the prayers and the Torah service. He was formerly Chairman of the Synagogue's Chevra Kadisha Society. ----- Say For Me Kaddish: An Engineer’s Life and Advice gives related information about Esther and Roy in the context of Alan’s memoirs. The book is available from fine bookstores by using ISBN 978-1500648756. Online orders at http://www.createspace.com/4922451.
