Welcome dear reader, user of Google, and/or erstwhile colleague.
This is my neglected corner of the Internet. It may be neglected, but it really is mine (unlike the preposterously high number of others which share my name).
Currently I am in Singapore as a trading systems engineer. I wave my hands over a keyboard to ensure our servers are running.
If it's IT then I've done it. Except Windows Domain Controllers.
Please check the lock icon in your browser window. Is it green? Then my work at DNS, Linux server administration, TLS, nginx and Apache httpd, IPv6, and HTML is solid.
I have a decade and a half on the job and am well regarded by my peers who compliment the depth and breadth of my knowledge. Give me an hour and I'll show you how to fix your load balancer configuration, Linux swap tuning, 3 month forward points, and JVM memory limit. Latest C.V.
