Bill Bates

Hello, I’m Bill Bates; the owner and operator of 1428 Systems. I have had a passion for the inner workings of things since I was a small child. Initially it started with a yard sale acquired toaster, as soon as I got it home I disassembled it and plugged it in to see how the bimetallic strip operated to toast the bread.

Then in 1981 my family acquired our first computer, a Commodore VIC-20, and I was off and running. Completely enamored with the world of possibility at my fingertips I dove headfirst in to programming manuals and hardware documentation and started building accessories to interface with it (crude light and temperature sensors, etc) and programming my own games in 6502 assembly code.

Many years have passed since that wonderful morning that I opened the giant silver box that housed my beloved VIC, but my passion has never dulled.

I am ITIL foundations certified, and a member of the Project Management Institute, and I look forward to the opportunity to provide you with a solution to your needs. Whether you simply have a slow running computer, or you need a data center setup for your business, or anything in between, reach out to us and let 1428 Systems help you today.
