Martin Buckley, a.k.a the Evil Zen Scientist, rightly pointed out that I’d posted my first coolblog without introducing myself.
Let me put right this breach of etiquette with my 2nd post
I’ll avoid listing interests, hobbies and pets although if anyone has any advice on how to stop one of my cats bringing live frogs into the house , I’d appreciate it.
My involvement with Novell started off as an user, all the way back to Netware 3.11 and a bit of v2.2. This moved onto a consultancy role for a medical software company who used Netware 3.12 for its traditional role providing file and print services, but also hosted a virtualized operating system known as BOS.
That’s right. Virtual OS on Netware 3.12 back in the mid 90s.
As time progressed I moved onto various positions, including working with EZS experiencing the delights of SFT III running on multiple CPU servers. Most of the latter part of my career has been involved with service desks and systems management before joining Novell in July of this year in the SRM division.
Well that’s me.
One question for the audience. Who can recall the different colours used by the Netware snake screen saver when running on multiple CPUs? The first was red, but for the life of me I can’t recall what the others were for a 4 CPU server.
