Hi! I'm Jared Smith, and I'm finally getting around to

OK, so what do you need to know about me? Let's see... I've been using
Linux professionally for about ten years now, and was using various
flavors of UNIX before that. I managed over 6500 Linux boxes at a
previous employer, and racked a fair number of those myself. I've
pretty much "been there, done that, and still have the scars to prove
it" when it comes to managing IT infrastructure and data centers.
I'm also big into VoIP (and even co-authored an O'Reilly book on
Asterisk), so I'm hoping to help out jcollie and mmcgrath in that area
as well. I'm currently working for Digium (the company behind Asterisk)
as their Community Relations Manager and lead trainer.
I've also done quite a bit of database work (mostly PostgreSQL) and some
programming in various languages.
Anyhoo, enough about me...
Since I never miss a chance to run my yap, I wanted to point out that
Jared lives in my neck of the woods -- until I move, at least -- and
that he has been instrumental in getting our local LUG revived. He is
also a fantastic speaker, a true team player, and just a darn nice guy!
Now put him to to work. :-D
