1989 I started school at age 4
2008 I finished school at age 23
After 19 continuous years of school, I finished my last course today. No finals this semester (besides presentations I've given over the last week) so I'm finally finished, fulfilled all the requirements for a Masters Degree in Computer Engineering and don't have any more school. The years definitely have been full of both good classes and hard instructors, accomplishments and downfalls, projects which went off without a hitch and tests which were bombed horribly. I've met so many great people through my academic career and forged relationships which I hope never break. I'm not fully shutting the book just yet, I am floating the idea of a Ph.D. eventually, but a long break is long due. I'm sure I'll find plenty of things to pass the time with, I'm still working full time, and have a gazillion ideas concerning programming projects I want to do. In my personal life, my friend Louis started teaching me the guitar, and I'm looking at learning and doing all the things that I haven't had the time for yet (traveling is definitely in the picture). But anywho, this blog (which I'm finding to be alot more successful than any of my previous attempts, getting a bit of feedback from readers) will go on, so feel to check back!
Several years back, during my job at the Living School Book, I was tasked to admin a small LDAP server for a small project we were working on. It was all new too me at the time, and I took a while to learn it, writing up an article in the process. Lo and behold my time spent was worthwhile as I've been helping my current coworkers get up to speed on how LDAP works and is administrated. To help out, a former coworker (and good friend) helped me digg up this ancient article I wrote (alright only a few years old and everything is still relevant) on getting started with LDAP. Enjoy!
