I work for a small ISP based in Lancashire called Gconnect (www.gconnect.net) and my main responsibilities include UNIX administration with FreedBSD, Cisco network design and consultancy and poking fun at Windows engineers. I’m a long time Mac user so often get as good as I give, so phrases like ‘fan boi’ are just water off a ducks back. A while ago I got a CCNA and have muddled through a number of exams and currently hold:

  • CCNA
  • CCDA
  • CCNP
  • CCDP
  • CCIP
  • CCNP-Security

Having finally passed the CCNP, and then having to do the CCNP-Security as Cisco retired the CCSP (Hmmmm), I’m at a loose end certifications wise. I’m often tempted by the MySQL certs, but have just bought the latest copy of the CCIE R&S written book. To add further confusion, there is talk of VOIP at the office…….

You’ll see a lot of Perl related posts because thats what I enjoy using currently, but i’m not blinkered, see my upcoming projects page.
