I support network engineering and server design, installation, and maintenance (including WWW, NetNews, ftp, mail, and other basic types of servers).
I exclusively use the rock-solid Linux operating system on all the servers I administer. I prefer the Debian GNU/Linux distribution due to it's configurability, ease of remote maintenance, and high quality. See my home page for more of my thoughts about Debian's virtues.
I think that regional and community-based ISPs are the future of the Internet. Very large scale internetworking is horrendously complicated and it may be decades before the Big Boys can master the art (if ever). The small provider using standard, proven UNIX tools can manage their networks more reliably (in general). Moreover, people are looking for community services which small ISPs have time to support and encourage. I'm committed to helping small ISPs in particular the Mom and Pop ISP get started in the ISP world and give them competitive advantage over the "Big Boys".
