My name is Alan Belisle (pronounced Bel-Isle).
As you may already suspect, this is my personal Web site. I was
born and raised in Québec, Canada where it was customary – at least
for French Canadian kids of my generation – to be baptized with
several first names. Surprisingly, J.A.Z.A.B. are my full initials.
I am a geek at heart who offered a golden opportunity to explore
greater challenges in Information Technology left Canada in 1999
to pursue my career in the United States.
I originally launched JAZAB.COM to host my personal blog in an
effort to stay in touch with friends and families back home. Like
many professionals in the U.S., I started working very long days.
Maintaining my blog soon became a real chore and my daily blogging
soon became infrequent events. This gradually led to a significant
decrease in readership which ultimately led to the closure of JAZAB.COM.
Officially, JAZAB.COM is closed. I have nonetheless kept the site
active on the Web mainly for the mail server. In addition, I have
often leveraged its storage capacity to exchange files with friends,
colleagues and clients.
