	I am a SAGE Level IV system administrator, with fifteen years of 
experience, and I've helped build some of the biggest mail systems on 
the planet -- and various other related projects.  I've also done a 
variety of invited talks at the largest industry conferences for 
system administrators.  I am involved in the System Administrators 
Guild, and I plan on getting much more heavily involved.

	I have four Sun UltraSPARC 10 clones downstairs that will be used 
to support NTP development for FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, and I may 
run Solaris on the fourth machine as a support system.  I also have a 
four-processor dishwasher-size box with twelve SCSI hard drives and a 
hardware RAID controller that is going to be the main fileserver. 
Then there's an ancient Sun SPARC 4 clone and my wife's first laptop 
(Compaq Armada 4131T with a single 133MHz Pentium processor, 48MB of 
RAM, and a 10GB hard drive that I stuffed in).

	I've also got a nice little secure wireless network here in the 
house, with several access points and over a dozen different 802.11b, 
b/g, and a/b/g cards.  And then there's the various hand-held 
computers, some with WiFi and GPS accessories, etc....

	I am my own system administrator.
