Mike's FreeBSD Stuff
Hello & welcome to my corner of the web...
Here you'll find various projects/papers/rants I've written from a mostly BSD-centric point of view. If you're new to the BSD family of operating systems, then you'll find some great brainfood scattered throughout this site. And if you're a crufty ol' unix-beard, you may very well have a chuckle or two at the misadventures found herein. Some good reading either way. You can keep up-to-date by using the rss feed above. Have fun.
