I'm currently a Java developer and product manager in the financial industry. I am currently working on lots of different projects, but I have focused on high-performance server work and Swing client work in the past. I've developed in multiple languages on multiple platforms, working seriously with PHP, ASP, Unix C/C++, MS SQL Server, and MySQL.

I take a very direct approach to programming. I don't bow to convention simply because it is. Remember that DOS was a standard at one point. Remember that Windows still is a standard. Does it work, yes, I suppose, most of the time it does. I would build it much differently.

The fan test mode doesn't start. It acts just like normal.Green light, yellow light, flashing red and three beeps.

This doesn't have any effect. I tried doing this to start it up, while it was going through the startup, and afterwards when it was just flashing red.

I wouldn't use the synonym of "coward".
