About Me

I'm a somewhat experienced systems administrator and webmaster. I also dabble in networking and coding -- though don't expect me to know many coding languages. Of course, I love computers and technology. I've been interested in them since I was a kid. I've leared a lot in the past few years, mainly because of an interest how the Internet works. My hobbies include phone/device repair, configuring and breaking networks, casual gaming and of course, systems administration.

Background

I've been messing with computers since I was little -- always tinkering and taking them apart. I messed up my first Windows install back in 2010 and installed Ubuntu 10.10 to try and fix that. Since then, I've been playing around with various Linux distros and even got to the point to where I started hosting things with Ubuntu Server. And here we are, looking at a webpage being served by Nginx and Ubuntu!

Projects

softether-autoinstall (outdated)

Script | Bash

The softether-autoinstall script aims to make it easier to deploy the SoftEther VPN server without prior knowledge of *nix systems. It allows you to install the SoftEther VPN server in a single command that not only compiles the software for you, but also makes it a system service so the server is persistent after reboots.

YouTube

youtube.com/icoexist

My YouTube channel is a place where I upload various content, sometimes completely unrelated to the rest of my videos. Originally, I wanted my channel to be a place where people can learn more about *nix system, however now it's a place to learn just about anything. Web development, web mastering, systems administration -- I've got it all! (Though my channel is nowhere near its prime.)

Experience

Operating Systems

Ubuntu Server, CentOS, pfSense, Proxmox, Windows Server

I've been using Ubuntu Server & CentOS enough to be able to configure them for production use as web servers, VPNs or other general purpose applications. Most of my web applications or websites are run within Proxmox VE.

Coding Languages

Bash, Perl, HTML & CSS

I have dabbled in Computer Science and have done my best to teach myself some of the popular coding languages out there. I'm currently learning Python and C#, but I have proficient knowledge of Bash and HTML.

Software

nginx & Apache

I've worked with nginx and Apache in the past when creating web servers. I favor nginx to Apache due to its ease of use and proxying capabilities. Every webserver I manage is run on nginx!
