Hello, My name is James! I’m a devops engineer by both trade and heart.
I joined the military shotly after high school, where I learned electronics, radio & radar and other such skills as would befit someone focused on Naval Weapon systems. At the time, I couldn’t stand the experience, but my fondness for this time period has grown over time. Thanks to the Navy, I had the chance to see half a dozen countries before I could legally drink in my own country!
Onboard ship, I eventually ended up in the Computer repair shop. There, I managed a Netware 3.11 network and learned to work with X86. At home, I went from DOS, to OS/2 Warp, eventaully migrating to Slackware 3.0. The ability to run my own web and mailservers was intoxicating, and I became hooked for life.
