Work, Projects, and Experience

ioTheory Founder and Systems Administrator
http://iotheory.net

ioTheory is a small business which provides primarily game server hosting, as well as website, email, and VPS/Dedicated Server Hosting.

From the home rack, I've been able to teach myself pleanty about server hardware and software, vmWare, different Linux distros, various software (Namely Apache, PHP, MySQL, etc). I use the equipment I own currently to test out configurations before implementing them for live installations, to self-educate myself on various new technologies, and the such
