Hello, my name is Mike and I’ve been following Jeff for almost a year on TG. Been dragging my feet getting started for a few months but I’m finally in the groove. Like most others, I want more privacy and security.
I have some prior experience with Unix/Linux, just never became expert at it. I’m a retired long time IT guy who started as a NetWare admin, moved to Microsoft and Cisco before I transitioned into management and the tech magic I possessed slipped from my fingertips after a few years of managing teams/projects. I did get trained as a SCO Unix admin a long time ago, played with early Linux distros when they truly sucked to get working, and have installed and ran a few newer distros in the least couple years but never committed fully to it. Ready to make that change now.
Have toyed with the of becoming a PEN tester, will see if that becomes something eventually.
Looking forward to the journey with you all.
