Working with a bunch of different clients and sysadmins, convincing them that puppet and SCM are the way forward for managing servers. At home, I'm playing with nginx, ruby, python, open source routing, and projects involving bass, leds, and el wire.

Used to be hardcore opensolaris, ZFS, low latency network design, and infiniband RDMA. I was working in high frequency low-latency trading.
Many(relative term) years of experience administrating cisco switches, routers, and Windows+linux+unix networks.

comment Pidgin, OpenLDAP, Users changing own passwords
Ah I see. So I was in the middle of writing a web-based password changer. Is that the only way to go? I feel like this is a problem that many must have bumped into...

comment Far manager for linux?
I'll check it out, I'm a vim guy at heart, but if the normal (scp, editable keybindings, the ability to use whatever editor I want when I hit f4...) stuff works then it might be just what I'm looking for. mc really bites, I don't know how people can use it without getting frustrated and dropping into straight bash.
