|I have THREE great accomplishments that I'm inordinately proud of.|
|I am the proprietor of SYONEX offering expertise in systems and networks, and products for organizations of all sizes.|
|I am no longer a small cog in a big corporate wheel.|
|I was the General Manager of Certainty Solutions in Canada. Certainty Solutions was an Internet Managed Services Provider, headquartered in Redwood City, California.|
|I was Director, Network Engineering at UUNET Canada, one of the UUNET Global companies, until I resigned in June 1999 to pursue other opportunities :-).|
|I'm proud to be an alumnus and former staff member of the University of Waterloo, most recently in Information Systems and Technology. Some people asked me why I left UW. I'm also an MFCF alumnus.|
Thresh is a data-directed SNMP threshold poller, written in Tcl with the Scotty toolkit.
I have a small collection of references to Problem Tracking systems.
I have another small collection of references to SNMP Related Links -- SNMP is of course the Simple Network Management Protocol.
I've got some other stuff available too.
I use lots of freely available software every day. Most of my computers run FreeBSD, and I use fetchmail to retrieve an average of more than 1,500(!) mail messages a day. (I'm on a lot of mailing lists.) And I use the really cool Website META Language to generate (virtually) all my web pages. Excellent stuff.
