About Me

I'm a somewhat experienced systems administrator and webmaster. I also dabble in networking and coding -- though don't expect me to know many coding languages. Of course, I love computers and technology. I've been interested in them since I was a kid. I've leared a lot in the past few years, mainly because of an interest how the Internet works. My hobbies include phone/device repair, configuring and breaking networks, casual gaming and of course, systems administration.

Background

I'd like to say that I grew up in a nice little town but unfortunately my family moved quite a lot. This means I went to several different schools and lost many friends. Though I can't let that get to me, as I've also met new friends along the way. After high school, I've devoted my time to finding what I like to do, and try to get a job based on that. If I knew what I wanted to do, I'd be in college for something, but I haven't yet seen my calling.

Projects

softether-autoinstall

Script | Bash

The softether-autoinstall script aims to make it easier to deploy the SoftEther VPN server without prior knowledge of *nix systems. It allows you to install the SoftEther VPN server in a single command that not only compiles the software for you, but also makes it a system service so the server is persistent after reboots.

YouTube

youtube.com/icoexist

My YouTube channel is a place where I upload various content, sometimes completely unrelated to the rest of my videos. Originally, I wanted my channel to be a place where people can learn more about *nix system, however now it's a place to learn just about anything. Web development, web mastering, systems administration -- I've got it all! (Though my channel is nowhere near its prime.)

Experience

Operating Systems

Ubuntu Server, CentOS, pfSense, VMware ESXi

I've been using Ubuntu Server & CentOS enough to be able to configure them for production use as web servers, VPNs or other general purpose applications. I've also started dabbling with VMware ESXi. I'm currently in the process of migrating my current production servers to a virtualized environment on ESXi.

Coding Languages

Bash, Perl, HTML & CSS

I have dabbled in Computer Science and have done my best to teach myself some of the popular coding languages out there. I'm currently learning Python and C#, but I have proficient knowledge of Bash and HTML.

Software

nginx & Apache

I've worked with nginx and Apache in the past when creating web servers. I favor nginx to Apache due to its ease of use and proxying capabilities. Every webserver I manage is run on nginx!
