Hello, my name is Jeff Wattles and while I have been a
Fullnet Customer Service Representative for only 18 months, I have worked in the
customer service and technical support arenas for the last ten years. I have
been through two years of college where my studies focused on computer
programming and I am thinking about returning to get a computer sciences degree.
I have also been through informal training where I learned to troubleshoot most
types of Internet connections (Dial-Up, ISDN, DSL, Frame Relay) and through a
seminar where I learned quite a bit about digital imaging. Like most of you I
have learned about Microsoft Windows (and their other software) by going through
the college of hard knocks. I feel this helps me relate to you, the customer,
for I have had to work through some of the same questions and frustrations you

wife Sherri and stepson James. I also enjoy playing chess when I can find a
