I'm blogging like all the other cool kids!
I'm Erik, I live and work in Austin Texas. I am a serious UNIX nerd, and I geek out on observability issues. I worked for IBM for 8 or so years; first as a co-op student, then a contractor and finally a regular employee. I worked with AIX on multiple platforms during my time there ( PS/2, RS/6000 and the RT briefly ). I joined Sun in August of 1999 .
Things I Claim to Know Something About
- Solaris Kernel and Virtual Memory
- SPARCv9 User Trap Handling
- Application Linking and Loading (ld.so)
- ELF File Format
- UNIX C Development Environment
- emacs and emacs lisp
- SPARC Assembly
- X11/Xlib/Xt and Motif Application Development
- TCP/IP Application Development
- Pthread and Thread Application Development
- Kstat Observability Development
- Audit Library Development
- MDB Debugger Command (dcmd) Development

When I'm not pounding on a keyboard, I like:
- Competitive Pistol Shooting
- Playing SOCOM 2 online, my nickname is "Jöhnny".
- Slowly re-modeling my house.
- Assembling PCs from random parts.
- Napping with my dogs ( Sam and Sid ).
Wow this is harder than I thought, writing all this stuff. Maybe I'm not cut out for blogging!
