I started out as a Systems Administrator working with Solaris, Windows NT, Linux and xBSD systems in the late 90′s. I quickly realized that my best days involved software developers asking for something – figuring out how to build a web cluster was much more interesting than fixing printers and blackberries. This got me more interested in what we’d call Operations or DevOps today.

My natural leadership abilities led me to director roles early on. In the last ten years of my career I’ve been the CTO of three innovative organizations, and I’ve learned a lot from the each of them. I also fell in love with developing software. Over the last six years, I’ve built large scale web applications in .NET, and learned several other languages including JavaScript, Java, Ruby, Scala, PHP, Perl and Python along the way.

comment Determining if a bot is scraping utility bill content and how to block it
You could make it so that the CAPTCHA appears as a rate limiting tool... i.e. "if the same IP address makes more than one request for <the resource you want to protect> in a x second span, display a CAPTCHA".

comment Windows 2008 R2 AD servers on fanless flash based systems
I wonder if something like the Shuttle XS35V2 might be good for this? I use them and love them in HTPC situations.
