Computers: servers and services, number crunchers, workstations, laptops, printers, networking, pocket devices
We use the following operating systems: FreeBSD UNIX which servers are running. Number crunchers are running CentOS Linux (which is 'binary replica' of RedHat Enterprise Linux), workstations are running CentOS Linux, MacOS, MS Windows. In general, whatever system user wants, I will install and maintain it. Usually, I manage workstations centrally, as servers. But if someone wants to manage machine oneself, I can install it, and will help managing it when one needs my help. UNIX and Linux machines that are managed centrally are being watched for system integrity, which definitely adds to the security of our machines.
In general, everything that has processor inside, if it doesn't work, I can try to fix it. I do not guarantee I will not break it, but I have good record.
Outside of my job duties my interests include: outdoors and watching the nature, one of my hobbies is ship modeling: this my scratch built model of Kirov cruiser fires missiles on command. I like sorts and exercises, taekwondo is my favorite (I have 1st Dan black belt and am one of instructors in students taekwondo club.
