Welcome to my notes.
I am a long-time software developer and administrator. I’ve been developing software for over 30 years for a variety of systems. During that time I have installed and administrated more systems than I can count; the types include Xenix (an early version of Unix for PCs), MS-Dos, Windows (all varieties) and Linux. I’ve been full-time with Linux since 1991. I earned my RHCE back in 2002, and have kept current on the technologies ever since.
These pages are intended to document various tricks and techniques I have developed and come across over the years. The links are to pages I have found to be useful in my work.
I am not an evangelist. While I have a definite bias towards Linux, and in the Linux world I prefer RedHat/CentOS/Fedora, I try to keep up with the other major distributions and use Ubuntu on a daily basis at work. I also use Windows & OS X on a daily basis. When asked about a problem, I will recommend the best solution I can think of, even if that solution is a Windows based one.
I will also be keeping some old, non-existent sites alive here. These are sites that I have found to contain useful information and code. Other than making changes to ensure that they work, I will not be making any significant changes to them; they are here for documentation purposes only. While they are sometimes available via the Internet Archive (www.archive.org), the Internet Archive doesn’t always capture all the files.
Enjoy, and I would be interested in hearing from you.
