Lucasec Computer Help

I'm redesigning my internet presence.

For my latest work, read my blog and scope out my GitHub.
My old site will remain up for legacy purposes.

About Me

My website, Lucasec Computer Help, has been around for about 6 years now.  I probably owe people an explanation of who I am and what my website is for. Without further ado, here it is:

Hi, I’m Lucas.  I’m currently in High School, and, if it is not already clear, I spend a lot of time on computers. This strong interest in computers all began back when I was in third grade.  I was standing at my teacher’s desk, waiting for her to check over my essay.  It was then, that a teacher from across the hall came in.  She asked my teacher a question about some instructions the school had given her that involved setting up an email program.  I, listening closely, realized that I knew how to do this.  I got an odd glance when I spoke up, but they agreed to let me try, and surely enough, I got their email working just fine.  Next thing I knew I was setting this up for all the teachers in the hall, and then every teacher in the whole school.  The events of that day lit a spark inside of me that has only grown brighter.  I now knew my place in this world.

From my experience fixing problems, and tinkering I do in my spare time, I’ve become quite proficient with computers and problem-solving.  Near the end of my third grade year, I created the first version of my website using a free service.  I eventually upgraded and got the address lucasec.com (because lucas.com was already taken).  Lucasec.com has continued to evolve, and has seen a number or different designs as I’ve played with different website creation tools.

In sixth grade, I began experimenting with AutoPlay Media Studio.  It was designed to build CD menus but it featured a simple scripting language that allowed me to get a taste of some simple programming.  Eventually, I began to learn Adobe Flash, a popular web programming language.  In eighth grade, I completed Classroom Jeopardy, my first sophisticated program.  I designed it for my English teacher, and it was intended to replace the PowerPoint templates many teachers used for Jeopardy-style review games.

And that’s that.  A brief summary of who I am.  What I will do next is uncertain, but Lucasec.com is the place you’ll find it when it comes.
