I originally named this site “UNIXWizardry” because, well, basically I am a UNIX geek, having been a UNIX Systems Admin in the past.  I’ve been using UNIX and its variants (Solaris, BSD UNIX, Dynix/ptx, etc, etc.) for decades; and now mostly Debian Ubuntu Linux.   I got started using Linux with the Slackware distribution shortly after Linus released the kernel on the Internet.  It’s hard to believe that Linux has now been around now for over 25 years and is now embraced by Fortune 500 companies!

While I’m still a UNIX/Linux geek, my interests have somewhat changed; I’m now into the Internet of Things (having always been an electronics geek), and it’s amazing that many of the IoT devices run some flavor of Linux.  Raspberry Pi’s run Debian, Intel Edison runs Yockto or ubiLinux, and so on.

The site is a work in progress.  Many thanks to my friend Greg Walton for his help in setting this website up.
