Introducing: The Other Sys Admin
I'll take this time to post a small introduction and give you some background!
I am an Ottawa native, born and raised, and started my career in Technology and System Administration back in 1996. Since then I've had a plethora of jobs: Anywhere from Tech Support to Technical Trainer to System Administration (which is my current role).
The worst disaster that I ever had to contend with was all out Exchange 5.5 failure. For those of you who have not ever had to recover an Exchange 5.5 server with No Data Loss - it's a fricken nightmare! Documentation on the procedures are so scattered and difficult to understand that I actually decided to write my own Whitepaper on how to do it. I later published it at Tek-tips . Click here to actually read the white paper.
I'm an avid gamer as well. My latest obsessions are Guild Wars and Oblivion.
I game on my custom built machine: AMD 3700+, 1 gig RAM, West-Digital 180gig Drive 7200rpm, and nVidia 7800 GT (not too many of those around - but I have connections ;))
I don't have a lot of spare time, however, being a local musician. On weekends I team up with my ol'man and an old friend of his in a band called The Rivals. Don't hesitate to visit the website and download sounds and the video of us doing "Highway To Hell".
When Kiltak asked me to join G.A.S .. I didn't hesitate. I've been reading the blog for some time, and find that the exercise of posting odd articles here and there will be helpful, even for me, to keep current in today's technical market.
So - *BIG WAVE* .
