I am an avid user of FreeBSD, an open source Unix derivative. I recently completed an upgrade from 7.x-STABLE to 8.x. My primary server acts as a firewall (ipfw), WiFi access point, file server to Windows systems, terminal server, telecommunications hub (via Asterisk), and print server. In the recent past, it also was my mail server, and web server.
I am active in my community, trying to help make a difference.
- I am on the Gilroy Unified School District's oversight committee for a recently passed $150,000,000 bond, which is being used to open a new high school and renovate numerous other schools.
- I am a member of the City of Gilroy's bond oversight committee for a recently passed $35,000,000 bond to build a new library.
- I am the treasurer for the parent club at my daughter's elementary school.
- I am a volunteer for the Gilroy Police Department, helping at local events and assisting in emergencies.
