System Downtime

About me/Contact

My name is Michael Pobega, and I’m a junior Linux Sysadmin. I’m a senior at SUNYIT in Utica (as of fall 2013) with an expected graduation in spring 2014.

This blog is about random things I learn in my time as an IT specialist, as well as a place for me to post random thoughts and ideas.

I am a Linux enthusiast, scripter and programmer by trade, and fighting game scrub by hobby. My experience includes but is not limited to running and maintaining Gentoo, Debian and FreeBSD servers, small to medium scale networking, PXE imaging, PHP/HTML/CSS, C/C++, Python and Perl.
