Where We Come From
It All Started With a Tree...
Continuity Centers started from a rather unusual genesis: it was because of a tree. Way back when, before the Internet existed, Greg became fascinated with some of the first PC-based games. Wanting to be able to play “online” with friends, he installed a 10Mbps laser Ethernet system to beam the IPX packets between to a friend’s house around the corner. However, as spring waned on, their signal became strangely intermittent, especially on windy days.
With his experience and knowledge of the 7 layers of the OSI Model, he started troubleshooting at the physical layer, which quickly uncovered the issue: a budding maple tree was interrupting their laser signal with each gust of wind. To resolve these network outages, armed with a tool that most engineers don’t carry – a bow saw – he cut a “window” in the tree, leaving a perfect wedge-shaped hole to allow the laser beam to pass through without issue.
The “nothing can stand (or grow) in my way” attitude intensified his devotion to technology and what he could use technology for – and in the future, for his clients.
