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 address. .
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., 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 here to visit.
I AM DONE! On Sunday May 14, 2000 I was hooded by my advisor, Fritz Drasgow.
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 administer Linux!
Brewing - one of my life goals is to place in the AHA nationals.
