I've grown up with computers around me my whole life. I started programming when I was a kid, and stuck with it ever since. I came across Linux around 1999 and have enjoyed working with it ever since.

For a job, I get to write software that runs on embedded Linux devices. I do everything from working on low-level drivers to writing shell scripts and even web apps.

comment Why must loopback traffic be authorized using iptables to get web access?
It seems that there must be other IPtables rules in place. It could be from a firewall or a captive portal system or a number of other things.
