I'm a sysadmin for Sentry Data Systems. I do linux and clustering and networking, and enjoy instigating a good STONITH deathmatch when I get bored.

Work-wise, I'm a giant fan of the k.I.s.s. principle - keep I.T. simple, stupid. Don't make things any more complex than the features you need.

In my spare time, I renovate houses and ride herd on a pack of dogs with extreme mental issues. My background and career are both in systems. I look at systems, analyze them, and use them or make them better. I likeCFO DIY home stuff because the systems are simple and it's rewarding to figure em out and use them. How do I know the things I do? I have probably been there, broken that, ruined the other thing, and had to figure out how to fix all of them. we have this saying in my group of friends-who-renovate-houses: "Ask me how I know."
