At work I am Lead Email Systems Engineer at Columbia University Information Technology. My team administers Columbia’s main email system, serving 55,000 active users. I do a mixture of things: development, operations, junk mail control and security, and problem-solving. I work with Sendmail, Cyrus IMAP, Mimedefang, Spamassassin, Perl, shell scripting, and a little C, running on Solaris and Linux systems. I use Mac OS X on my workstation and at home.


However this is my personal web page and it has nothing to do with that. I’ve put here a collection of things I worked on and some links to pages I keep visiting, in case anyone is interested. For my own stuff, mouse over the little pictures up there, or click on this list:
