Welcome to Spearfishing in South Florida....

I Love Spearfishing, and the spearfishing in South Florida is pretty damned good. As you can already tell, Jeffrey Drew Jenkins has  some pretty strong opinions about everything.  Here you will find all you need to know about Jeffrey Drew Jenkins of Boca Raton, Florida.   Since 1997 (my god, that's five years!) this website has been proclaiming the deeds and adventures of  JeffWorld.  The center of jeffjenkinis-ism.  The repository, access point, and true original source of all things Jeff Jenkins.  Here you can begin your voyage of discovery about me, Jeffrey Drew Jenkins: my education at The University of West Florida, links to things I like to do, and stuff I want to share with you, the reader, about my hobbies, my life, and my career. Also, of course, the obligatory photos of me, me diving, fish I have caught. There's quite a bit about South Florida and why I really like living here. After all, Jeff Jenkins thinks South Florida is paradise! 

If you want to contact me, just email me, my address is simply jeff@jeffjenkins.net    ... for god's sake, just do it the easy way, click on the mailbox below and get on with your life.

     Should you wish to send an actual letter on a piece of paper, mail it to  825 NW 13th Street #108, Boca Raton, FL 33486. I used to publish my icq number, but  in all fairness, I don't crap around with icq much any more, cause I actually have a life.  Regarding any email you wish to send:  Remember, marriage proposals from attractive oriental women are opened first! 

Lets start with the interest that presently consumes me: DIVING, and in particular SPEARFISHING.  In March of 1997 I was certified as an Open Water diver, followed by a PADI specialty Underwater Hunter, and then Advanced Open Water Diver. In 1999 I finished the PADI Nitrox Specialty, and that's as far as I've gone so far.  I generally go diving at least once a month, and sometimes almost once a week...

Some day, I'll be a  PADI Master Scuba diver, and then I'll be a real know-it-all and can just kick back and gloat. The important thing is,  weekends find me hovering over a wreck or reef, looking for fish that need spearing! Of course, I'm always looking for lobsters too, as well as any weird stuff I might happen to find on the bottom of the sea. The list of weird things I have found include boat anchors (3), beer cans, conch shells, encrusted fishing rods, bottles, and a plastic trash can.  My favorite boat is called the Miss Conduct, leaving out of Pompano Beach, with the capable Capt. Conrad Nix at the wheel. If you've seen Jaws, you remember the character of Quint the charter captain. Well, that's Conrad. The Miss Conduct is a 6-pack, meaning only six divers; no rules, just right.  The truth is, once you have been out a few times in a smaller boat, with 4 or 5 divers instead of 15, you will not go back to a larger boat... 

Other compelling interests include automating my entire household with the  X-10 system. If you have never heard of the incredible X-10 system, let me tell you, it rules.   Actually, I'm sure you have heard of them, because they have possibly the world's most annoying pop-up ad on the worldwide web.  X-10 is a standard for sending signals through the wiring of your house or condo. These signals connect special controllers that plug into your wiring. The controllers can turn lights on and off, as well as dim them. They can also control fans, coffeepots, air conditioners, or anything powered by AC current. So for example, you can lie on the sofa and adjust and dim lighting and fans throughout the house. The best thing about X-10 is that it is modular and expandable...you can start with one lamp controller and a remote and build up from there. But wait, there's more! You can also add a timer, so for example at 6:15 the lights go on in the bathroom, and at 6:30 the coffee machine kicks on. You won't have to worry about leaving the lights or coffee on, 'cause you set the timer to shut off everything at 7:00 a.m. 

My love for the X-10 system was so strong and true that I finally had to build a page of homage to it. That page can be found in the links to the left... 

Other things I enjoy are videoconferencing, saving money and fixing my bad credit (it can be done if you know how). 

I also have included my resume, so if there's a better place for me in your organization, let me know! I'm always looking to learn and grow. My occupational history includes both call center operations management and Computer Network Administration.  I've been supporting myself for the last few years with my own consulting business, Computer Problems Resolved.

Oh yeah....in case you are wondering where you heard the music...it's the theme from Seinfeld....
