Introduction

I am interested in Computers, networks, electronics, radio, and many other topics.

What are your areas of interest?

I am a Systems administrator and have been in the technology support industry for over 10 years. I have extensive experience on enterprise class infrastructure systems as well as home and small business systems. I am not much of a developer but I know enough to know when to ask for help, which is usually at the beginning. I have been involved in developing security plans and implementations at a major 4 year university in the state and have experience working on hardening both endpoints and infrastructure devices.

Working on any interesting projects at the moment?

Just ordered an arduino uno and have a couple of projects in mind for it. I am currently working on building an antenna tower for my radio hobbies. I have also started into the software defined radio world and I am working on building both a receiver only and a transceiver radio setup. These devices combine my computer hobby with my radio hobby and thus get extra bonus points.

What's your "dream project" - what would you build if you had unlimited time, skill, and resources?

I would love to build a cnc machine. I have been interested in machining for a long time and I have had the chance to do a little bit of work on a CNC mill and would love to be able to build what ever I can think up.
