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
- InlineBacklinks - yes, I am responsible for this atrocity.
- Smart Titles - and this one too.
- Misc Hackery on GoogleCode - And all of these.
- World Domination (for GNU/Linux)
- Make new Friends who want to help in my plan(s) for World Domination
- Collect Underwear, ??, Profit!
