I'm a hobbyist programmer, part-time sysadmin, and full-time data center management, automation, and cloud computing architect and delivery engineer.

I have experience with myriad editors, shells, and OSes. While I have my [strong] preferences, am pretty much beyond the religious wars of "what's best" when it comes to platform, editor, or toolset: if it works for the problem at hand, and you know it, it's [probably] worthwhile :)

comment Paying Off Debt: When CC Companies Won't Reduce APR
@JoeStrazzere - you need to either focus on the highest-interest balance (which has the best math with it), or you need to focus on the smallest balance (which has the psychology with it).

comment Paying Off Debt: When CC Companies Won't Reduce APR
@JoeStrazzere - because you hit one debt hard and fast. Then you take all of that onto the next one. And so on. Dave Ramsey refers to it as a "debt snowball"

comment I earn $75K, have $30K in savings, no debt, rent from my parents who are losing their home. Should I buy a home now or save?
your employer doesn't own half your 401(k) - all monies you contribute are yours regardless. Matching funds, if any, may be where you are confused
