Been working with SuSE/opensuse since version 5.3 (1999), Linux since 1996, started with Slackware 96. Also work with FreeBSD, Haiku (BeOS) and Solaris. I play role of Red Hat Admin in my daily life. At night, I dress up a grey hat hacker, with my SuSE Pin on my pork pie hat, while I work on my main desktop running openSUSE Tumbleweed. With some server running Leap as and loving it.

Over 23 years of IT experience. I written a firewall program called Tengu, that works with logs to block attackers.

All my virtual servers is run on openSUSE Tumbleweed with KVM (Libvirtd), on old Dell hardware, ask to see my rack. ;)

I help out with Civil Air Patrol's Cyber Patriots, teaching kids how to use Linux. I am a community manager for the Southeast Linux Fest, where I run the table for openSUSE.

I do a lot of retro and computing stuff with single boards, mainly Pi, Odroids, and ASUS.

Facebook Admin for the group and fan page, and Yast.

Working on Playbooks with Ansible.

Trying to get Minecraft Java to run stable on Tumbleweed. What can I say, I am a builder.
