I am a freelance Web Developer and IT Consultant residing in Rochester NY.
I specialize in non-standard technology based solutions, ranging from obscure networks to uncommon home theatre systems.
Doing a bit of cleanup on my portfolio site, so some links have changed. My lightning talk on xen was moved.
Just helped reset a production Linode, and fully documented the process, plus extra for the development version. If you are looking for comprehensive instructions, you came to the right place.
Taking a Web Application class and we were all asked to put together a presentation on a related technology. I proposed NGinx.
Taking a Systems Administration class and just put together a tutorial on setting up a Debian NGinx Web Server plus installing MediaWiki. After having experienced MediaWiki I can say I would probably never use it in future projects by choice.
As an owner of a MacBook Pro with a JIS Keyboard, I recently put together a tutorial on configuring a Debian system to support Japanese input, including JIS configuration such as for virtual machines.
I began researching the Xen hypervisor in January earlier this year (2012), and as of August I finally completed a comprehensive tutorial on setting up a home server using consumer parts that uses IOMMU to create a multimedia PC capable of modern gaming performance as a virtual machine.
I have created a Xen Wiki entry detailing the entire process from start to finish in response to the dozens of guides that only show the smaller parts of the process, and have created a Video Demonstration to walk through with it on my Youtube Channel. The total time to setup a brand new platform following those directions is approximately 2 hours, however to fully understand everything that is happening may take significantly longer.
I recently experimented with SharedWorker objects and put together a comprehensive demonstration of how to create a delivery confirmation system to account for the lack of an "onclose" event handler. You can test it out here
Approximately one month ago Instantz.net and INPForums.com, two sites I have provided volunteer web development and administrative services to for about a year now, were taken down as a result of a DMCA notice. The rise of new restrictive DMCA laws now state that simply linking to infringed content (even if you do not host it and are not responsible for its existence) can net you a court date with the copyright holder. As a member of the community I have begun working on restoring a discussion board for its members, temporarily placed at seaofnumbers.com.
For a good example of my recent code, my website is running off a custom micro-sized MVC, and the source (minus credentials of course) can be downloaded here.
