I work at a large international development charity in London, as International Operations Manager. I manage a team of Regional ICT Service Managers, based in developing world countries, who keep our users happy through fixing problems, setting up great connectivity and generally making sure users can do their day jobs.

I previously worked at the same place as International Network Systems Analyst. I looked after a bunch of ICT systems in offices in the developing world, as well as looking after systems in our HQ. I gained a lot of knowledge in that job, and the techy side competes with the people stuff in the new role, hence I still hang out here a lot.

I'm passionate about the use of ICT in developing countries, both in terms of dealing with the inherent problems for ICT in those places, and using ICT as a tool for development.

comment Is it okay to use a SSH key with an empty passphrase?
Until your client laptop gets stolen and used to breach your perimeter before anyone has a chance to revoke the SSH key. A passphrase on the key would give you more time to revoke the keys.

comment User security settings for scheduled task on Windows Server 2008 R2
There is a hard coded SQL server account in the EXE that has the permission to write to the database. This is separate from the AD user used to run the scheduled task. When the executable is run as an AD Domain Admin, it works, when it is run as a normal user, it doesn't. Are you suggesting that the AD user the task is run as has a bearing on whether the exe can talk to SQL?
