Facinating Facts About Toolie

Here are some things you probably didn't know...

  • Toolie got her first computer job college when she volunteered to re-type into the mainframe a computer professor's program that had accidently been deleted. When confronted by fellow programmers who observed her logging into the terminal but didn't know who she was, she explained her task, but was still hauled before the director of Data Services, who delivered a stern lecture on computer security!
  • Toolie's company name, Tooliedotter, is a combination of her maternal grandmother's nickname (who was the original Toolie) and the word in Swedish for "daughter" ("dotter"). The word Tooliedotter is an homage to all the female decendants of Grandma Toolie.
  • Toolie has taken round-the-world trips 8 times. Her record for accumulating the greatest number of miles in the shortest period of time is 72,000 miles in 8 weeks.
