Here at, we're celebrating nearly 33 years on the Internet!  Increa began to publish the "Minisport Laptop Hacker" via UUCP in October of 1991. In November of 1997 (a year after Yahoo came into existence) Increa Technology appeared as a web page hosted on  A year later Google put up a web page.  In 2002, became a stand-alone domain. On these web pages, you'll find information hovering in the void between professional activities, entrepreneurial feasibility, and renaissance curiosity. If you use material from pages I maintain, please link let me know, and provide a link back to

Intentions out of high school were to become a medical doctor, but during my second year of college, I started building Heathkit computers, and my life became a combination of interests. I obtained a Ph.D. degree doing atomic emission analysis of atmospheric pressure spark discharges, then joined the military as an Air Force pilot, and later became an Engineer.

When I left active duty military, I settled onto a rural homestead in Michigan and secured work as a Sr. System Engineer in the field of industrial automation.  I continued to fly KC-135s with the Air Force Reserves while I enjoyed the intellectual freedom of being a telecommuter.  The implosion in 2001 sent me out on my own to breath life back into the sole proprietorship company I had started more than a decade prior. I did contract work under conditions that many dream of, but was disappointed at the lack of integrity in some business relationships.

THERE.  When a job opened up as a Flight Test Engineer at Edwards AFB on the Airborne Laser program, I packed up all we owned on a friend's 53' semi truck and moved to southern California.  Later, I took a job in the Electronic Warfare directorate, where I found more expansive work doing Directed Energy Test & Evaluation and other technical assistance representing the Air Force Flight Test Center enterprise at Edwards Air Force Base.  At the USAF Test Pilot School, I continued to develop flight test instrumentation and software to significantly cut costs of aircraft modification, while changing flight test execution paradigms and educational curriculum.

AND BACK. Fall of 2007, I accepted a full-time college faculty position back in Michigan, while simultaneously serving in a Residential Life position on campus.  During semester breaks, I continued Air Force Reserve work at the USAF Test Pilot School and the Electronic Warfare Directorate. The draw of wind and weather in an operational environment, financial requirements, and family changes eventually drew me back to the west coast full-time to instruct and develop curriculum at the USAF Test Pilot School.

AGAIN. The following years included moving 6 times in the span of 5 years.  Work included nuclear treaty assurance, getting another Masters degree, school with the Navy, and acquisition work at Air Force's Materiel Command.  Currently, I continue flight activities as a civilian and work at the Air Force Research Lab, specializing in Electronic Warfare, Directed Energy Weapons, and Weapons System Cyber Security.  After a fantastic final assignment in the military defending military systems from cyber attacks, I wrapped that career.  I now continue on as a civilian at AFRL.

Publications The Wiki (prior to 2017)

Increa posts may appear in news groups for Hewlett-Packard HP48Palm PilotRadio Equipment Swaps, or Linux Newsgroups.  Every once-in-a-while, I publish articles about my activities, including finances, taxes, and energy needs of a small homestead. I moderated the Volmer VJ-22 and Sugar Springs Airstrip groups before Yahoo shut down their groups in December of 2020. If you're interested in making computers work for you instead of working for them, visit my Increa Computer Consulting page. If I ever run out of things to do, I used to visit the catalogs of Tom Lindsay and buy a new book.  Sadly, Lindsay books went out of business end of 2012.  Some alternatives -,,,,,
