An experienced Linux and Unix sysadmin. I'm open to projects/problem solving on a short-term basis. If you have something that needs to get done, let me know.

Contact me:

serverfault@douglas.cx or serverfault@1n6.org.uk

Skype: iain.sf

I agree entirely with the sentiments expressed by @yoonix if you do nothing else today read and reflect on what he has to say for it is truth,

I give up. ServerFault has been overrun by idiots and people that bought their first Ubuntu VPS an hour ago.

Everybody has to start somewhere. Why does that somewhere always have to be here?

It's clear that nary a single person reads anything here on their first visit beyond 'serverfault' (hey, I have a server! That's the place for me!#@) or even the 'post your question' button. Several times daily one has to ask 'what's your question?'.

I'm insulted by this.
