Welcome to the Secure Computing Networks wiki. Our goal is to produce a resource for Unix, Mac, and Windows System Administrators with information on configuration, trouble-shooting, and utilities for easier use and management of their systems and networks.
I will be attending BSDCan this year! If you'd like to meet up, drop me an email.
The SCN Wiki got started as a personal project of mine, to store all the various configuration and trouble-shooting data I acquire in my job as a FreeBSD Administrator, and as an ad-hoc developer. Over time, I started doing more complete write-ups for things such as OpenVPN and OpenLDAP. Today, I get a modest 4,000 hits per day to these complete articles.

"Ok everyone, let's come up with words that you think describe a good people-centric business." 10:40:51 < ecrist> Fucking Karen, in back, yells, "harmonizing". 10:40:57 < ecrist> Shit, this is happening. 10:41:19 < ecrist> Phil, from accounting, blurts out "passionate". 10:41:46 < ecrist> The only thing that's ever been passionate in Phil's live was the sex his wife got from the neighbor last night. 10:41:55 < jhibbits> what about synergizing diverse perspectives? 10:42:08 < ecrist> The overweight, but not too-overweight organizer says, "let's think bigger." 10:42:39 < jhibbits> ecrist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyV_UG60dD4 10:43:07 < ecrist> Karen, who's all excited because she contributed for the first time in her goddamn life yells louder, "driving alignment!" 10:43:12 < ecrist> Goddamn it Karen. 10:44:17 < ecrist> Kimberly, the gal that doesn't actually do any work, but idles in the break area all day, states a half-assed, "pushing objectives to outcomes???" 10:46:25 < ecrist> She sits back down, she's just interested in the free lunch. 10:46:51 < ecrist> "Let's put it all together folks! These are some great ideas." 10:47:12 < ecrist> As the speaker moves to the whiteboard, he fires up a quick cat gif. 10:47:22 < ecrist> Everyone laughs. 10:47:57 < ecrist> "I thought I'd add a little humor to the day with that JIFF my kid sent me the other day" 10:48:12 < ecrist> Fuck me, he said JIFF, like it's peanut butter. 10:48:53 < jhibbits> ecrist: you've played this out at least once before, haven't you 10:49:50 < ecrist> Could you tell by my Agility or was it the Six Sigma Black Belt that gave it away? 10:50:37 < jhibbits> Your flashbacks to Dundar Mifflin 10:51:05 < ecrist> Oh, I wish it was just a TV show. :) 10:51:25 < jhibbits> With the way you describe it, it could be a full broadway production
