Got bit by the computer bug in 1981 on a TI-99/4A in 7th grade. Waded through the 80's on Apples and Commodores.
21 years of Navy/military computer experience, initially with mainframe systems. 15 years of direct IT experience, mainly Windows and security, the last as an IT Manager for a major defense corporation.
Familiar with some *nix flavors: VAX, HP-UX, Solaris, X-Windows, but never had the time or freedom to really gain an appreciation for the overall 'movement' or dig deep into an aspect of it that really interested me. I'm initially interested in RHEL as that seems to be the major player in my industry at present. I'm recently unemployed due to budget cuts and contract cancellations.....so, here I am.
