I am a highly motivated, results-driven IT professional with 10 years experience, a systems engineer who enjoys working on large-scale systems and challenging problems. I have experience with large number of servers (10.000+) connected via WAN and LAN, which makes it possible for cloud providers to deliver reliable services to customers

My current role is: systems engineer of the team which runs the websites.

On the top of usual systems engineering tasks, I like to develop softwares, my main language is Ruby (and I use Ruby on Rails of course :) ) but I can read and understand (and fix) Perl and Python, however it is not my favorite. I started to learn Erlang recently, which helps me understand the challenges what software developers face with distributed systems.

comment How to change the default user group's name in Active Directory?
Do you know another way of having a simple group on my unix/MacOS boxes as the default user group?

comment How to change the default user group's name in Active Directory?
I am just curious how could I avoid that this string shows up in my home directory on MacOS. Instead of having a name which has a backslash and a space in it I would like to see a single English word there. I am curious how can I achieve it. There might be a better way of assigning a group to the users and configure the system to use that group when you are creating a folder or a file in Unix/MacOS. Let me know if you have a good link what I should read about this.

Why would be this a bad idea?
