First Post!!!

I'm so pumped!

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
  • Solaris Device Driver and Loadable Module Development
  • Kernel and User-land Application Debugging
  • General UNIX Hackery

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!
