Personal Interests:
Home Network: At home I use a mix of Windows XP, Ubuntu, and FreeBSD. I run FreeNAS as a backup and file server that uses a mixture of TFTP, SMB, NFS, and HTTP. I have flashed the firmware of an older WRT54G with DD-WRT and created a secure wireless network using WPA2 encryption. I created a PXE network to build Ubuntu machines.
Firefox: I wrote an extension, Open Source in Tab, that allows the user to view the HTML source in an new tab, instead of opening an entirely new window.
