So, it's finally time to admit that I'm not likely to keep my personal page
up to date. Instead, I'm moving to posting updates on my NRAO blog at
There, I hope to post updates on things I've learned, problems I've solved,
scripts I've written.
Hi. I'm a Systems Administrator with the National
Radio Astronomy Observatory in Charlottesville, VA. I currently maintain
Mac OSX systems (mostly laptops), Linux servers and audiovisual systems.
Prior to coming to the NRAO, I was a FreeBSD systems administrator at several
local companies. I also worked for a while as an embedded Linux engineer for
a company that makes ARM-based single-board computers for industrial/commercial
use. I used to be a licensed amateur radio operator (callsign KG4NGV).
Back when it existed, I was also a co-organizer and presenter in the
Charlottesville Unix User Group.
My Other Pages:
- My blog. I use it now. This page is kinda dead :(
- My Wiki
Page will have more info, too (eventually)
Scripts for Mac OSX that mimic the Linux useradd, groupadd, userdel and groupdel commands. These scripts are wrappers for OSX's "netinfo" system.
Since OS 10.5 dropped NetInfo, I've ported my nitools to the new opendirectory 'dscl' backend. Only dsuseradd, dsuserdel and dsgroupadd supported so far.
