Network Engineering

Whether you're looking for a small network consisting of just a couple of PC's or a large, enterprise network with multiple locations consisting of tens of thousands of end points. I have experience in all of them. Multi-site MPLS, Service Providers, Health Care organizations, Financial institutions, you name it.

I have designed scalable Software as a Service environments from the ground up using distributed switching and routing protocols across distributed MPLS networks.

Choosing a College Degree Program for Non-Academics

and IT Professionals that don't "Pass Paper"

Edward Frye

Western Governors University




Going back to school, starting Saturday

Starting this coming Saturday, October 1st I begin taking classes again at Western Governor's University.

This will be my second attempt at starting a degree at an online university. The first was through Capella. And as I'm writing this blog entry, there is an advert for Capella right here.

The reason I was not successful with Capella was that the course I took was dependent on time spent "in class". As well as dependent on group projects.

Facebook and Twitter integration (Google Plus?) revisit.

It seems that after a few module updates, I am no longer receiving the Share to Facebook function when updating stories and blog postings is no longer available. I see that the code is in the modules contributed examples, but not fully integrated. Also the examples enable too many features that I actually don't want or have found a different/better looking way to provide them.

Twitter robot update

Yesterday I decided to see what it would take to get my twitter robot @HackThisOrg up and running again. I found the Net::Twitter perl module when looking for simple OAuth functions. The follow portion of the robot lives again.

When I first wrote the robot, I didn't want to use modules other than the LWP module because I wanted to see if I could get the functions I was looking for in a more simple fashion without having to download and compile a ton of code. I wasn't exactly following the "Be Lazy" mantra of Perl modules.

Cyber Camp Develops Tomorrow’s IT Security Pros

Government Technology website has an article about an information security challenge:


At 10:49 a.m. last Friday, Prof. Dan Manson cupped his hands over his mouth and shouted to seven teams of five eager people that they could begin a virtual Capture the Flag competition at the 2011 U.S. Cyber Challenge Summer Camp at Cal Poly Pomona. 
 
The players manned laptops and began the simulation in which they entered a network to infiltrate servers, conduct penetration tests, analyze attacks and contents of files, overtake control of networked services and crack passwords.

New Website simple template

I've been spending the last several evenings working on a new simple template for my website based on the Zen template. I finally got it looking the mostly the same in all web browsers. Including Internet explorer versions 8 and 9. Since even Microsoft doesn't support Internet Explorer 6, I'm going to stop trying to get it to work in that version even though I know several corporations that still use version 6.

I'm definitely interested in feedback on the template which is now live. But please use an web browser other than IE6.
