Things are ramping up with this blog as I bring it back online. I sort of feel like Dr. Chandra bringing Hal 9000 back online — one element at a time, and as each step is completed, the system becomes more familiar and responsive.
I’m completely operational, and all my circuits are functioning perfectly. — Hal 9000
So, anyway, as I re-assemble the site, I will slowly but surely republish some of the old articles with tips and tricks that are still applicable (SSH port tunneling, for example) — and also, I’ll try to update them as well.
About this site — it used to have the title ‘Tao of Network Administration’ — since I plan to cover more than just network administration, I’ve settled on the less specific “Tao of Schuh.”
By day, I manage the network and many of the servers and linux/unix computing labs for the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University. Occasionally I will develop LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP) applications and assist with computer and network security prevention as well as post-incident security analysis and forensics. I’ve maintained CISSP certification since 2001.
By night, I play bass guitar with the Snake Oil Salesmen; read books; compose/write music with Ableton Live, Reason, and Logic Pro; and I’m currently teaching myself (aka playing around with) the Apple Final Cut Studio suite of applications — mostly Final Cut Pro and Motion.
And finally, when its warm — I just might be out on Cayuga Lake sailing my 1974 Ranger 23 sailboat.
Here’s to the future!
