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 Can someone explain the “use-cases” for the default munin graphs?
Great question, easily applicable to Cacti and other graphing apps. The graphs often look great, but it is pretty hard to figure out what they mean, and more what something that needs further attention looks like.

comment Which RBL's does sophos use?
Worth putting that information in your question here to avoid getting your question voted down. People don't take to kindly to questions that don't show someone has done a basic search for an answer already :-) Update your question, and I'll remove the down vote (I can't otherwise).

Explain what you are backing up and what you are trying to acheive - don't expect people to spend the time trying to understand your uncommented code.

comment Nagios plug-in check_snmp receives NO SNMP data from a CISCO Router
It's the version of SNMP in use on the equipment you are monitoring. You specific -v1 in your snmpget command. Run the check_snmp command without any flags to get the syntax. Mine uses -P to declare the SNMP version to use. It's an optional variable. I think the default would be 2c, so if your equipment only uses version 1 you would need to declare it when invoking check_snmp

Which version of the ASA software are you using? ASA 8.4 includes user based access-control which might work for you.

comment Server hacked - want to run an rsync backup in reverse. Will this work?
It got closed after the question had been edited. People clearly will vote to close a question just because someone else voted to close it. Not good for the site or the community.
