I’ve collected a lot of different interests over the years, ranging from photography to computer repair and more. My professional background is in network administration, and I worked for 31 years at a variety of different large technology corporations in Sydney before retiring from my line of work 2 years ago. This blog is essentially a collection of my experiences working with different hobbies, as well as a personal catalogue of my fight against cancer. I’ve been in remission for 5 years, and I’m still going strong. If you’re interested in following my blog, please consider utilizing my on-board RSS feed, which will allow you to get instant updates without having to come back and check my blog manually in your browser—if you ask me, this is a lot more convenient.
If you’re interested in my content, please consider donating to my server fund. Just a dollar can help keep my hosting online for a week! I use inexpensive cloud servers to host my blog, and I don’t anticipate I’ll have to upgrade to anything larger anytime soon, unless of course the unlikely occurs and one of my blog posts goes absolutely viral. If you’re interested in learning more about a variety of different topics, please keep my blog in your bookmarks or your RSS feed.
Rather than using a third-party RSS feed program, I recommend using the built-in RSS features in Firefox, which are pretty robust for being packaged with the browser. A lot of people seem to not know about this great technology, and it essentially saves you a ton of time. If you want all of your news from the sites you follow to instantly reach your desktop without you having to manually visit each site, refresh, and look at the content on the page, this is the best way to do it without having to spend time and effort going to each site in your bookmarks.
For those of you who are really passionate about photography, computers, or personal reviews of local businesses that I write myself after working with a variety of local providers, please come back frequently! While my content might not be the most exciting stuff in the world, I think it can give you a new perspective on life in Sydney from the mind of an old computer engineer with nothing better to do. I may also give some career advice for young people looking to get a start in networking, network security, server engineering, computer science, and anything else that is within my realm of experience.
If you want to get in contact with me, you can use the contact form on the site to reach out to me. This will send an E-mail directly out to me, and I’ll try and get back to you quickly. Let me know if you have a topic that you want me to post on, and I will try and write an article about it the following week. Don’t forget to comment if you have something to say!
