Currently

I’m writing computer articles, installing & maintaining individual systems (often servers based on Linux), & handing out individual training in specific software systems. I also maintain a few web sites & provide business-critical support for some small businesses.

I have a reasonably good grasp of Internet principles, to routinely build & deploy name, web & email servers, SQL databases, backup systems, etc, securely. This includes NAT, port-forwarding, Virtual Services & VPNs. In less-technical areas, I teach people to use fundamental tools like office suites, email & news programs, web browsers, graphics tools, sound, file managers etc.

Employment

I started as a technician with a West Perth microcomputer retail store in 1980, & have worked as a programmer, technician &/or tutor in a variety of situations since; examples:

I have worked as a purchasing officer for a steel fabrication firm, delivery driver, country postman, sound technician, disc jockey, farmhand, electrical installer, newsletter editor, bulldozer driver & auto mechanic. I am always willing to turn my hand to something new.

Education

Future

Thank you for taking the trouble to read this. If you have any time, please consider responding to provide feedback. If I can make my words more useful, good. If anything is unclear, or not specified, please ask.

Please consider employing me. I live in Albany, Western Australia & am willing to travel (for example, I’m in Melbourne as I write, after passing through Adelaide, & will visit Sydney on this trip, have worked in Broome, Hedland, Hobart, Cairns, Kalgoorlie, Brisbane, Albany, The Alice, Canberra, etc).

Cheers; Leon
