The Computer Bastard is a programmer, systems administrator and scientist who enjoys helping people solve computing related problems. Computing systems are tools designed for people. Without the end user, there is no reason for computers or guys like me to exist. Despite the “Bastard” moniker, users are customers to me, and I don’t abuse customers (“move!”). So why am I the Computer “Bastard?” – it’s a long and mildly amusing story that won’t be covered here.
My systems experience includes everything from enterprise level Linux systems to Windows PCs and Macbooks. I program in Python, Perl, C/C++, Fortran, Bash, and almost everything else (I do hate Java). This blog will mostly be about system and programming howtos and tips.
Suggestions and questions are welcome.
