Hi. I'm a Unix Administrator, mathematics enthusiast, and amateur philosopher. This is where I rant about that which upsets me, laugh about that which amuses me, and jabber about that which holds my interest most: Unix.

Hello again, LQ!

Hi.

I've been busy. Very busy.

I managed to find time to boot up my Ultra5 the other day. It complained that the clock was wrong...apparently someone turned the clock forward 118 days. Sigh...in all truth, the sparc was in storage for 115+ days, and since I finally got settled into an apartment in San Antonio, I've had time to set things back up. The Ultra5 now has a friend...an Ultra2 that was given to me by a coworker at Rackspace. He never used it much, and...

RHCE - a bit late, but almost done!

Posted 02-08-2012 at 09:46 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

A little while ago (2007?) I joined LQ.org. In one of my first posts I asked a question about the RedHat Certification courses and studying for them. I wanted to get my RHCE, but didn't have the knowledge needed to get it...so I wanted to know if studying CentOS was a good start.

Fast forward 5 years. I'm sitting in a week-long RHCE "boot camp" class. We're supposed to be doing a lab for PAM configuration for the next few minutes, but I'm already done...so I'm blogging...

Still kicking

Posted 12-12-2011 at 08:44 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Just a quick update...I'm still alive. I've been super busy with moving and getting settled in with the new job and city and new schools and all that jazz. It's been hectic. Rackspace is soooo worth the "life upheaval". (Google "rackspace castle" to get an idea of where I work. I love this place haha.)

I'll post more techie stuff when I get some time...

My life is chaos (and I love it)

Posted 10-24-2011 at 09:53 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

First up, this isn't one of those "woe is me" blog posts. My life is chaotic...and I love it. It's hectic, yes, but I operate best in "panic mode". haha. Probably some quirk that carried over from my years in the military. I dunno.

I put in my two week notice where I work because I accepted an offer from Rackspace Hosting, so my current company has been on me to document all of the in's and out's of the stuff I built while I was the Database Administrator...

"Your time is coming"

Posted 10-07-2011 at 11:42 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

During the summer of 2010 I had a nerve-wracking interview with Google. It was fun, mind you, but it was stressful. I passed the phone screenings with flying colors, flew to the west coast, underwent a grueling all day interview, and flew home confident I'd impressed them. Then I got the call saying they weren't moving forward with me. I was really bummed, but the timing just wasn't right. "It wasn't meant to be", everyone told me..."Your time is coming", they said. I got...
