I'm a System architect & Linux admin for cloud.com (Citrix).

I've been working with Linux since right about when kernel 2.2 was released. I've bounced around several unixes, having brief stints with Solaris & FreeBSD, though I much prefer Linux.

I enjoy solving problems, and designing things. Both of which I'm able to exercise quite frequently working with Linux.


Outside of tech, I love flying kites (and partake in some kiteboarding), frisbee, and other outdoorsy activities. I love the warm weather, and thunderstorms, which is why I live in south Florida :-)

comment Authenticating To Multiple LDAP Servers
I would advise sssd. You can configure it to use multiple LDAP directories, so if a user isn't found in one, it'll try another. This will let you migrate as slow as you want. It works for authentication (pam) and sudo.

comment How to get notification from upower when UPS is on battery
If this is an APC power supply, there is apcupsd which comes out of the box pre-configured to send mail to root on the local machine. If your system is configured to send root mail to a real address, it'll work with 0 configuration. The mail thing is just a script as well, so you can tweak it however you like.

comment Domain Name problems in CentOS hosted under VirtualBox
With the information displayed in the screenshot, this appears to be an issue with your VM getting its network configuration from VirtualBox (via DHCP). I've tagged the question with VirtualBox, but I don't use it enough to be able to help.

comment How to merge two network interface in one?
What is the goal? You have several options here, but each depends on what you're trying to accomplish. Do you want to route traffic from one network to the other? Are both networks on the same subnet? Do you want broadcast packets from one network to get propogated to the other? Do they both have routes to the internet? Do you want to load balance internet traffic out both interfaces?

comment H.264 support in Firefox (Iceweasel) 24
@garethTheRed This does provide an answer to the question. Sometimes the answer is just short. I can't think of any way this answer could be elaborated. If the issue is simply a missing package, you install the package.
