As noted on the home page, my name is Dan Nielsen. I'm a software developer and systems administrator based near Chicago, Il.
I have extensive experience administering both Linux and Windows systems. In addition to maintaining base operating systems I also have experience administering storage services (SQL Server, PostgreSQL, ElasticSearch), mail systems (exim, postfix, powermta), Apache, and HAProxy.
I manitain a number of open source projects. Most are discrete utilities for use in solving specific problems. Have a look at the Projects page or see my Github repositories for a more complete list.
When not parked at a keyboard, I enjoy reading, fishing, hiking, and long walks.
