I am a software engineer and system administrator. I’ve been doing software engineering since 1986, first in assembly language, then C, then Perl and an assortment of UNIX tools. I started doing system administration when I got my first UNIX-like OS, SCO Xenix, around 1988, I think. Since then, I’ve worked with SCO UNIX, AIX, SunOS and Solaris, and HP-UX, and finally Linux.
I worked first for a vertical-market software outfit, then got into contracting through several consulting companies. Finally, I incorporated Bobcat Open Systems, and do web development, web design, and web hosting, as well as consulting and contracting.
In this blog, I cover my experiences including recommendations and rants about things going on in my company and the computer industry. I hope you will find them useful.
