I spend my professional time working with Linux server technologies.

I previously obtained an RHCE, and studied Computing and Statistics for an undergraduate degree and am currently working through a Medicinal Chemistry MSc.

Have made some minor contributions to some open-source projects on github; https://github.com/tolland

and maintain a terrible ranty, unresearched speculation blog on blogspot.co.uk; http://take-your-vitamins.blogspot.com/

None of this is fit for human consumption.

comment decrypting AES files in an apache module?
If you are referring to the other answer, then you should probably have made your "Don't roll your own crypto. answer" as a comment to that instead.

comment decrypting AES files in an apache module?
I think there is a difference between "rolling your own [de]crypto", and writing a piece of code that uses some other well designed, and well tested de/crypto library, and wrapping that functionality to make it available to some other software.

comment Mirroring MySQL server with different configuration
Yes, but you need the logical dump. Any xfs, LVS or xtrabackup strategy is going to also backup innodb metadata that you don't want.
