I am currently a Computer Science graduate student (Ph. D. seeking) at the University of Maryland. I do a lot of programming (primarily web application development) for small businesses and nonprofits.

In school, I focus mostly on security, and I have also worked on counter-terrorism applications.

You can find me most days in PHP and/or C#, but increasingly in JavaScript with a focus on Rich Internet Application areas (knockout.js, durandal, breeze.js, etc).

comment Java Spring application working on one system, dying on almost identical one
What does the code look like at someClass.java:234 where the Null exception is thrown? Is it trying to get outside data?

comment Can I use something like a tunnel for SSH in this Linux/Windows Remote Desktop scenario?
Why not install an SSH server on the Windows machine and tunnel with that? There are lots of SSH Servers for Windows available.

comment how many decibels of noise will an Intel R1000BB generate?
(Oops, I accidentally pressed '4' when I meant '5'.) This machine is a Poweredge 2900 (Gen III). Right now, it's in a datacenter, but I had it at home for a long time while I was setting it up and it was quieter than the HVAC.

comment how many decibels of noise will an Intel R1000BB generate?
@josten I have a 4U that's pretty quiet - it uses regular-sized 80mm fans, so they don't have to spin as fast as the tiny ones used in a 1U.

comment An unknown tool is wiping our Virtual Machines and we can't ID it
Purely based on the design of the window, the strings contained in it, as a handful of similar screenshots, it looks like the tool is something built by Acronis. Here is an example of a tool Acronis built for Seagate (click "Next" a few times to see it) that looks very similar.

comment rails app (via apache proxy) images from uploads directory missing
That sounds like a good solution if you can't edit the Apache config, but doing it in the Apache config puts the static assets load back on the web server instead of tying up the application server with it.

comment DNS A record pointing to private IP address
If you literally can't connect to the VM at all by name, that means the DNS is not configured correctly (or hasn't had time to propagate). Run nslookup DNS_NAME to see if that is the case. If you connect to the VM and get a "default" webserver page (something like one of these), then your VM's web server is just not configured to respond to that name and you need to configure it.

comment Getting an intermediate SSL certificate
DigiCert Enterprise lets you pre-validate your domain and then do large-scale subdomain certificate generation. (Disclosure: I do not work for DigiCert, but my employer uses their certificate services.)
