Need help?

If you've gotten here and need UNIX help, there are several UNIX/Internet resources on the web here at DePaul that can help you. If you're still completely stumped, then call the help desk at extension 8765 (312-362-8765). Please email me only as a last resort, as these resources can help you quicker than I can.

Why this exists:

I have a personal home page that I don't update with any regular frequency at MCSNet, but that doesn't tell you what I do here at DePaul, so that's what this page will do.

What I do:

I've been working for DePaul since 1994, and while I started as a Windows application developer, I greatly prefer my current duties as the main UNIX System Administrator and Systems Programmer, a position I share with Rick Cruz.

What I like doing:

While working at DePaul, I've accomplished many things, and are fairly proud of them. Some of my "neato" accomplishments include:

What I do anyway:

Of course, there's a lot of stuff that I do every single day/week/month that isn't so neato (read: mundane), including:

I have a good deal of fun working here most days. It's challenging, but the rewards are usually worth it--helping people makes me feel good about myself.

Personal and Professional Opinions: (I'll try not to fall off my soapbox)

Trivia about me:

The opinions expressed on this page are not necessarily the views of DePaul University, and DePaul cannot be held accountable from anything resulting from information or opinions listed here.

Counters are useless, BTW.
