About

Hi!
My name is Eric and I am presently a full-time corporate IT trainer in North America, with technical trainer certifications from Apple, HP, Microsoft, Sun, MySQL, Oracle and SGI.  Lately (2009) I have been primarily focused on database administration, and throughout my career have had a keen eye towards performance tuning and systems optimization.  Imagine in 1995 optimizing massively SMP systems (256 to 512 processors) with gobs of memory (512GByte+).  Nothing has really changed since then, other than reduced cost and the move towards software vs. hardware.
Formally, I hold a BSc, MSc, MBA, CISSP, PMP, and am a Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) in the British Columbia Human Resources Management Association (BC HRMA).  With regards to IT, I have an alphabet soup from the vendors for which I teach, dating back to the mid 90′s.
Ultimately, I like learning new things and helping others learn what little I’ve discovered in the hopes it makes their lives just that little bit more enjoyable. =)
The reasons for this blog:
1) to understand what people want to know and help them find answers
2) to use the masterschema.[com,net,org] domains I’ve held for years
3) to document and share my experiments and successes/failures with technology
4) to perhaps help defray the costs of my technology hobby (some call it a career?)
5) to learn how blogging works, how to assemble a basic screencast, etc…
6) to leave something of utility to others
Personally, I find my time going towards a new house, recent marriage, and other such non-IT life.  This is my priority: not blogging, not IT, nor career.  I will remain respectful towards those who respect my real priorities at home, the rest I will ignore.  Long gone are the days of idling on LinuxNET #linux IRC with a dumb terminal next to my bed…
I will endeavour (budget permitting) to host all resources on this site permanently, and will never hold strange copyrights and other hinderances to societal advancement solely for my benefit: ego nor economic.  However, I do ask that any materials borrowed from this site be cited appropriately.  Just give me some kudos or something. =)
Thanks for reading!
