Really why would you bomb TWIT?
 
The problem with the human race is, of course, the humans. Basically, they suck:

"...As some of you may know, we received a bomb threat a few weeks ago--and this isn't the first, second, or even third instance of the sort that we've had to deal with. We've also had people show up at our house, we've received threatening phone calls and emails, had our comings and goings tracked, been doxxed, and had our personal information distributed. This isn't limited to our hosts: our guests, mods, staff, families, and sponsors have also been the targets of these threats and abuse.

The term "troll" gets thrown around a lot. We get it: it's the Internet, and trolls, snarkiness, and differing opinions come with the territory. But it seriously crosses a line when it becomes targeted harassment, cyberstalking, and there are threats of violence--especially when your children are in the crosshairs. "Trolling" you can ignore, "stalking" is a different matter.

We take all of this very seriously. Being a target is scary and emotionally trying in a way that I wouldn't wish on anyone--and even more so when your friends and family are put at risk. We ask that you please respect any safeguards we must put in place as a result..."

  • Westfield Insurance
    WebSphere/Linux/Unix Technology Lead, 2005 - 2011
    I lead an amazing team of Linux and WebSphere Tech's. We began automating our infrastructure when I started there. Within the 5 years I was there the team managed to drop build times from 4-5 days to 4-5 hours. So, yes DevOps works and will save your company time and money. We were so fast at building the environment that before I left the plan was to rebuild rather than restore the servers in a Disaster Recovery situation.

Story
Tagline
Linux it's not just a job it's an adventure
Introduction
I started working with *nix in while a student at Kent State University in the early 90's.   In 1995, as an E-Mail Administrator for Caliber Technology (now part of Fedex) I was tasked with administering Sendmail on both Slackware Linux and Solaris Systems. My first home install of Linux was MkLinux DR1 in 1996 on my 60 Mhz PowerMac.  Since then I have been working and consulting on Linux and it's uses in the Enterprise to support everything from E-Mail, Firewalls, Web and File serving to custom cluster solutions and grid solutions.  I have had the opportunity to work in both Fortune 500 companies and small 2 person organizations.  This has given me the unique insight into the differences every size business faces.

  • Kent State University
    Psychology/MIS, 1990 - 1995
    Yep couldn't decide what to do. Ended up doing computers. I used to think I would finish out my degree someday. Now I am not so sure there would be a benefit.
  • Kenston High School
    1987
    It was fun. I did time as a high school DJ on our over the air Radio station. We were pumping out a whole 100 Watts. But we covered most of Cleveland.
