Medical IT Manager/Security Officer by day, builder/tinkerer/musician/diver/audio-engineer/jack-of-all trades by night. Love puffy and the #OpenBSD community. Followed here from birdsite. 21 years in IT.
Been writing/using daemons for the things I make since I decided I wanted to learn to develop on puffy. Not a lot of time to work on them, and need to learn packaging, but they works and I've learned a bunch.
