I figure since I've been posting today I should probably make an
introduction - I've not been to any of the meetings, but I've been
lurking here for a couple of months.
I am certainly no web designer, however I have significant experience
with web applications and the infrastructure which supports them.
Presently I work for a large luxury goods retailer as a Linux & UNIX
Administrator, part of which involves supporting a significant
e-commerce environment and WebSphere application mid-tiers (I am NOT a
WebSphere administrator or Java programmer - I don't want to be either).
I have knowledge of PHP, Perl and application hosting on Unix
environments (aka I know Apache inside and out) - In previous lives I
have been an Operations Manager for a Cleveland-based ISP, as well as a
Network Engineer for some popular web properties (Slashdot & SourceForge
to name a few).
Hopefully someone will find my contributions to be of value.
PS. I have a Blackberry. Hopefully that will not offend iPhone users.
I've had one for going on five years, and I feel useless without it. :-)
