14 years as a consulting Unix System Administrator, engineering applications support analyst and Oracle DBA. I tend to make things work in stock, shrink-wrapped environments and don't do a whole lot to customize or even automate things, particularly for the reason that I won't be around forever and it's unreasonable for me to expect that someone else will be able to or want to figure out what's special. My primary goal at each gig is to make things so pristine and so easy, that the client doesn't need me anymore.
I am a newly re-married father of a blended family consisting of my wife and I, my two children, and my wife's daughter (my step-daughter). Complicating this is the fact that my children spend most of there time living with my ex-wife and my other two step-daughters.
