    One. Utah/US. But I went to school 100 years ago in Tunisia

    University of Utah.

    What was the moment that cemented your Ute Fanhood?
    Birth - both parents, both sisters and my brother graduated from the U, my mother was a professor. There was never any doubt.

    What do you currently do for a living?
    I'm a software implementation consultant for an application used by government contractors and government procurement offices.

    Welcome, Pangloss. Like JiC, I affirm that your reputation precedes you.

    Now this place really is the best of all possible worlds.
