||Absolutely no updates! That's right! I haven't made any real updates
to this site in years. I am still around and this account still hosts my primary email
||Linux update! I became a certified Linux sysadmin in 2004!
My certification is through the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) with whom I have worked in the
past. (The exam content had been updated since I worked with them). While I was working
with LPI, I actually picked up the Linux+ certification, so this is technically my second Linux certification
but the Linux+ certification is really low-level compared to the LPIC-1.
||New website! Obviously you have found my new website. I'm pretty excited, this site is
inexpensive but it affords a lot of freedom to host cool stuff. I'm woring on that...
||It's been almost exactly two years since I updated this site. I cannot say I'll be
updating it very often but perhaps more often than once every other year.
||IwantINSIGHT.com, I bought my first domain and am working on the site now. It will
feature on-line self-testing and feedback. I also hope to add some developmental content and some
tutorials on topics that I know a bit about. When it's up, you can click

||Linux Professional Institute (LPI) is a nonprofit group dedicated to creating a high-quality
certification program for Linux system administrators. I have helped them with several small
projects and I am very impressed by the quality of their program. You can visit them here.
||Psychology - I finished my PhD in Industrial/Organizational
Psychology. If I had to list two passions, professionally, I really like
psychological assessment (esp. the methodological aspect) and explaining
technical issues to non-technical people (ask my about my HRIC idea).
||Psychometrics - I've been working on a non-verbal intelligence which will be
adaptively administered over the Internet and other Internet administration and reporting ideas.
If you would like to be a test taker (or better yet, have need to test a large
group over the Internet) please let me know.
I am also starting a small archive of no-cost
psychometric software. The adaptive testing links
are also available on my psychometrics page.
||Programming - I've been a hacker ever since I taught myself BASIC on the high
school mainframe in the early 80's. Now I'm polluting the web and learning to
||Brewing - one of my life goals is to place in the
