So, let me start by saying I’m not really a big blogger. This is actually my first blog, and I don’t follow blogs much. Heck, I haven’t ever even kept a journal.
That said, it’s probably about time I gave it a whirl, and see what happens when I publish my thoughts somewhere on a regular basis.
I should probably talk a bit about myself. I’m 24 years old, married, and currently work as a systems administrator for a publisher in the North Bay (no not O’Reilly). I work on a cross-platform Windows, Mac, and Linux network, with Windows and Mac workstations, and (Debian) Linux handling all the serving.
At home I run Debian on my desktop, server, and laptop, and in my free time I mostly do what I do at work–work with Linux. As far as musical tastes go, I mostly like punk rock, so in my playlists you would see things like Rancid, Pennywise, The Clash, that sort of thing. I like aggressive inline skating and have done it since my teens, but I haven’t really had time in the past year to do it much, so I’m sure I’m a bit rusty. I am however, fortunate enough to live close enough to my job that I can skate to work.
I suppose my plans for this blog are to post little interesting tips and tricks I come across day-to-day, and possibly comment on interesting news stories (and maybe the occaisional rant). I really get into interesting Perl one-liners and regular expressions and other interesting quick hacks, so I might post any of those that I come across as well. We’ll see how it goes.
