Default I'm back too :)

Okay so 2009 was a messed up year for Yours Truly, but it couldn't have been that bad... because I'm still alive and kicking.

Anyway, I'm sure there are a few here who sighed relief when they didn't see any more of my posts... I'll be sure to bug you a bit in the future hehehehe .

To recap where I'm at technically-speaking:
  • Network Administrator
    I manage a network spread across three datacenters for a webhosting company. A Windows webhosting company, no less. Responsible for the routing, switching, security, and monitoring.
  • OpenBSD User
    Been on it since 3.8. I use it for management workstations in the DC cages, DNS servers, DC-to-DC VPN, MySQL server, internal webservers, personal webserver, fileserver, and of course, as a firewall. Previously used it as a BGP route server (that was way fun). By 4.0 I had made the decision to not use any other operating system for any use at all, aside from desktop use (and I go back and forth on the desktop use).
  • Juniper User
    Grew up on Riverstone, learned to hate Cisco, found a new love in Juniper. The M series is great, and the EX series simply rocks- definitely a Catalyst-killer.
  • PERL hacker
    I will use it for a project or specific need, then not use it for months or years, nearly completely forget it... then have a project need. Rinse, repeat. Depending on where you catch me on that cycle is when I can understand developers and when I can't .

Anyway, I hope to be back on the OBSD sections now, and I'm actually starting to crack... I might try FreeBSD. Might.

Welcome back, prodigal son!

Your perspective has been sorely missed. It's good to hear that life is on the rise even in such a stagnant economy.

I just got a call from FreeBSD. You're welcome to try it. You might.

Welcome back

Well you are better off then poor me, earning only about 400 euro per month as part-time postman for TNT, where I get the opportunity to work in the fresh air and fresh snow

BTW forget about FreeBSD, give DragonFlyBSD with the Hammer filesystem a try. That way we can hear about something else then those boring FreeBSD ZFS success and failure stories.

No, I didn't mean your howto Mr. Vermaden

You guys are awesome.

And speaking of DragonFly, I've heard Hammer is very nice.

Guess what, you've been using FreeBSD for a while now. Guess what's powering all that Juniper hardware?
