SILENT KEY

 

 

 

Chang was born on September 26, 1972 in a little town in Korea and prefers the name that she currently goes by -- Melody. She currently works at Apple as a Systems Engineer but has previously worked for Taos, a consulting group in Silicon Valley. Previously companies she has worked for include Microsoft's MSN Hotmail, Sun Microsystems, SGI and Netli (now part of Akamai). She has a background in Systems Administration and Networking administration.

Her hobbies include reading, firearms, cycling, tennis, computers, amateur radio, archery, inline skating, and bowling. :) Unfortunately, due to medical issues, many of her more active hobbies are currently on hiatus. She can also be found regularly on IRC on the EFNet servers under the nick _Melody_ or Melody-_-.

Melody is diabetic and hypertensive. In September of 2000 Melody, at the age of 28, went to the doctor and was discovered to have a blood pressure of 253/163. After rushing to the hospital and waiting, she was finally admitted. Her blood pressure was brought under control under the supervision of the medical emergency team.

However, after being discharged from the hospital several days later, Melody noticed that she was having severe problems with walking and other activities that required balance and motor control. Upon seeing her doctor, it was discovered that she had a stroke. Though it was minor, it still affects some of her day to day activities. Amateur Radio has helped her deal with the results of the stroke. But because of it, she no longer bowls due to a balance problems caused by the stroke.

In the year 2004 on the 14th of November, she married Neil Bliss (KG6KWW).

In 2008, due to bilateral diffuse pneumonia, she suffered renal failure and is now undergoing dialysis. She is also awaiting a kidney and is part of the transplant program at Stanford University's Hospital. Because of the dialysis and other health issues, she's currently disabled and gets around with the help of a walker to help with her strength and balance problems.
