Your personal background.
Hey there!

To make things short and sweet, I'm the definition of a nerd/geek and hacker. I love tinkering, building things and tearing things apart to see how they work and to make my own improvements.

I've done lots of SDR and HF listening/DX'ing for a while now, as well as DX'ing plain ol' AM radio. I have a passion for using SDR to find, identify and decode digital wireless communications signals.

I do IT work (more specifically; general repairs/maintenance, remote systems administration on Linux and Windows servers, etc). I also do plenty of software development for various open source software projects and operating systems, as well as following my passion for game design and game development as time allows.

I'm also into EME (Earth-Moon-Earth) communication, microwave communication, satellite communication and long distance HF communication (DX). I have a serious passion for orbital mechanics and orbital simulations as well. :)

I'm just getting into distributed computing and clusters but it's all right up my alley (a good mix of ALL my passions!) and I'm *really* enjoying myself! I'm not cranking out "big numbers" just yet but I'm having an absolute BLAST!

Interests besides amateur radio and other wireless communications:

-Computer simulations
-Hardware/software hacking
-Linux and UNIX

Pretty much anything that can teach me something!

If you have any questions or just want to chat, please feel free to give me a shout. I love meeting new people with similar interests!

And here's a heartfelt THANK YOU to the sysadmins and volunteers for their dedication and for everything that you all do. Believe it or not, we're all doing a huge part in the research for POGS and we should all be proud of our contributions... no matter how big or small. Together, we discover new worlds.

So thank you (!) and happy crunching!


Your opinions about theSkyNet POGS - the PS1 Optical Galaxy Survey
As I said above, I'm THOROUGHLY enjoying myself here. The community has been absolutely amazing, the site design is easy to follow and the documentation is plentiful. I did work for SETI many years ago and I must say, this is just leaps and bounds ahead! I'm sure they've come a long way over the years but POGS is simply AMAZING.
