(tap tap) Is this thing on?

My very first blog post.  How exciting.

Actually, I’m about as leery of this as I was my first haircut, but I’m going to give it a try anyway.  My main purpose for starting this blog is to force me to learn a lot of the technology that I feel I’ve let pass me by: Networks, PHP, HTML, CSS, Apache, MySQL, Linux, Java, Virtualization, Samba….the list goes on.

I’m a fairly technical guy, but I need to dig a little deeper into the details and I think this will be a good way to get started.  My intent is to provide a little chronology to where I started and where I end up going, as well as document all of the hiccups I fully expect to encounter along the way.  Knowing the way I tear into things, there is no doubt that I am going to totally crater a server.  I’m hoping that by taking notes of my mistakes, I can not only refer to them later, but possibly prevent somebody else from making the same ones.  I’m also hoping to get some valuable advice from those who’ve been doing this much longer than I.

And since it’s my blog and I can do whatever I want to with it, I’ll probably share some random thoughts or funny stories along the way.

Onward through the spam….


I’m pink, therefore I’m SPAM.
