Hi, I'm Charles.

I have been working with GNU/Linux and other UNIX platforms for more than 13 years. I have a background in security systems and network infrastructure (data and telephony). I've taught courses at local community colleges on Hacking, Computer Security, Computer Forensics, Establishing VPN's, and in combating fraud. I tend to work for School Districts, Hospitals, and for other businesses with a humanitarian focus. I'm currently self-employed, and spend quite of bit of my time consulting; much of it spent working with GNU/Linux systems.

I work with a variety of Linux distributions. Currently, I usually tell people the following:

  • Gentoo or Arch for Development work
  • Ubuntu for those new to GNU/Linux and just want to get up and running.
  • Debian for Servers
  • And never-ever Fedora, SuSE, or Mandriva. I dont have anything against them really, except that they suck. :-P
