Avatar Etymology: The origin of Naladar Greylock can be traced back to March 16th of 1999 and the release of a MMORPG named Everquest. It was my first real foray into the online world and my first taste of what an online community can be like. I still keep in touch with many of my fellow guildmates, though time for joining them online is scarce. Go Red Maces!
Favorite Websites: DevCentral.f5.com, Lifehacker.com, Slashdot.org, TheF5Guy.com
I have worked in the I.T. Field for 10+ years and consider myself to be a Jack Of All Trades. I am currently employed as a Web Systems Administrator at a large financial services company. My daily tasks include administering a number of F5 BIG-IP modules (GTM, LTM, WA and ASM) running on a variety of different hardware units. I enjoy writing iRules, “piping” things through the BIG-IP units and tweaking security policies. I am a Certified F5 Networks Systems Engineer and I also serve as a backup MOSS 2007 Farm Administrator in my spare time. Lately, I have been spending a considerable amount of time working with DirectAccess and Unified Access Gateway.
The DevCentral community means a lot to me and I find it inspiring to interact with others in the community. I have created a website www.TheF5Guy.com which is dedicated to spreading news about F5 Networks products and I use it as a conduit to share my experiences with the world.
