From wireless media to 'sneakernet,' technology's no problem for this payments pro.

I'm a technology buff. In my family, it's all about our computers - our wireless network and our wireless media center.

There are five laptops in the family, and each laptop is used incessantly - and they're all wireless. I have two wireless routers and I have a wireless print server. That's pretty unique. It allows you to print from anywhere in the house.

If there's a certain prowess I've developed, it's online search. It may sound silly, but when you have three kids and a wife, there's always a need for something. The last item was a pair of Adidas. My eldest daughter, who's 20, spent her second semester in Rome. She met a guy whose last name is Berlin. She had to have the Adidas "Berlin" version. She had to get him these sneakers - it was my task to search the world and find them.

That's standard. She calls up once a week from college "needing" something - whether it's a new perfume or a specific hat. It's an odd hobby.
