Here's a bio about myself

Ken Felix

Hobbies outside of IT =  Hunting, Fishing, medium/large format B&W photography, Ham radio chasing Satellites and International Space Station and Archery

Started in the network arena Earlier90s with my 1st OS system that I primarily was Dec Ultrix and SCO. Also worked with  various routing platforms built  on the ATT 3B2/600 , Wellfleet's  BCN&AFN and IBM 2210s.

Favorite OS= OpenBSD followed by Linux ( Debian )

Favorite Routing Protocol = BGP (it's fun and interesting )

Favorite shell   =  CSH or TCSH

Most favorite Application or Internet Service  =  DNS

Most challenging  thing I ever did ( IT related )  = Compiling  drivers for a patch Linux Kernel source 1.0 for a Adaptec SCSI controller card on my pentium 90mhz system. A found a  developer in Belgium that helped me to test his drivers thru Compuserve. And 8 hours later we had a working installation.  ( He built the drivers, but he didn't have the SCSI controller card )

Most challenging thing I 've did in life = Manage not to be killed  while in the USAF Communication Systems groups. I seen some stupid things and ever part took of a few stupid activities. It's a miracle that I didn't die in Korea , or gotten somebody killed.
