In late August of 2016 I was offered a new position with another company and my life has been exponentially better. My wife and I also had our first child, Liam. He's the only thing I care about anymore. If you are a parent, you know what I mean.
I have been exposed to some new technologies and therefore I am trying to learn as much as I can about their power. So far, I've been able to build, from the ground up, FreeNAS, Pfsense, Araknis, and Meraki solutions.
My favorite stack is FEMP (FreeBSD, NGINX, MySQL, PHP). Rock solid :)
In other news...my Surface Pro 3 is now running Manjaro Linux (my new favorite distro based on Arch Linux). So far so good. I originally had Fedora 26, but there were some Wifi bugs.
So, that's pretty much it. I'll just pick up where I left off on this site and keep on keeping on. Thanks.
