Hello, thank you for reading this.
I am 3/4 Greek 1/4 French, but born in France, I live in Paris. I speak French, English and Greek.
Infrastructure architect, senior network architect/engineer.
I started my career as a system engineer, in the 80's doing mainly installation and configuration of a zoo of Unix workstations and servers (mainly Sun, but also VAX, MIPS, etc.).
Later I focused on the networking part, and designed a large research campuses networks and computing infrastructures, from scratch. That includes the network, servers, datacenters, VPN's, security, etc.
I play Ingress since July 14th 2014 when it has been released for iPhones. My agent name is Vadarf. You can find me on Telegram @Vadarf too.
I enjoy listening to music on my vintage HiFi system, made of IMF Electronics loudspeakers
, Mark Levinson amplifier, Stax earphones, etc. I also have a small mono system based on a Sansui integrated amp hooked to a Quad ESL63 speaker.
I am a collector of old computers
, and own severals DEC machines (PDP11, VAXen, etc.). I try to make them work, which sometimes involves hooking the oscilloscope or logic analyzer into their guts.
Unfortunately it's not easy to find parts here in Europe.
I like taking pictures, thanks to the Panasonic LX/7 camera.
I host couch surfers: they come from all over the world and stay (for free) at my place for a few days, sometimes more. It's a very nice way of discovering new cultures.
