My name is Michael. Awesome that you dropped by my About page!
I hope you read some of my stuff and made use of it?
Oh yeah, this is an about’ish page? Right … Well, besides being a family man – the more relevant parts would be, that I am a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE Cloud Platform yadayada…), Cloud Consultant / Architect, IT Generalist & Entrepreneur of sorts.
I have worked with IT infrastructure (and other things with an on/off switch) my entire career – and as a boy I played with the “right toys” ever since the age of 8.
So as I grew up with tech (not just playing games), it seemed only natural for me, to educate myself in this direction. And pursue challenges that would enhance my skill set (… and learn about stress, overtime, outages, user rage, ritualistic punishment aaaand the value of personal time!).
Around the glory years of Plug and Pray (1997/1998) I actually started getting a steady income, telling people how to turn off the computer, and turn it on again….
I won’t bore you with all my war stories, but I did once manage to save an entire company from a 100% data loss, by kicking a storage array (hard), with my boot.
The rest is on linked-in…
I write this blog for the sake of sharing and keeping track of just some of the solutions I come up with (or find and adapt).
I must admit that I tend to follow the path laid out by Microsoft, but I don’t shy away from other gospels, or pretend that it’s the only way…
I just prefer it. ^_^
Also, writing code/guides for sharing, tends to make me better at it (win/win).
My hope is, that in the future, you will be able to see how my posts evolve in clarity and usability – and makes at least one other persons life easier. 🙂
!Disclaimer! the solutions in this blog, is by no means meant to be a specific solution to your’s or other people’s specific problems. Always “adapt” responsibly!
Thank you for reading!
