Who am I? I’m just a guy… sitting in front of a computer… asking it to love me.
Oh wait, no, I mixed up my computer stuff with my movie stuff. Let’s try that again.
Seriously though, I’m just a regular guy who wanted to learn a little more about GitHub and Hugo, so decided to make a site to help with that learning process.
My name’s Chris White, and I’m known as Fezmid on Twitter. You can find me here on LinkedIn. And my (currently tiny) GitHub site is here.
I have many interests, and I may or may not talk about them as time goes on here. Some of them are:
- American Football (Buffalo Bills!)
- Board Games
- Technology (particularly InfoSec)
- Video Games
- Writing, both fiction (for fun) and technology
Technology is my main passion. I grew up in the 80s and my family always had a computer around. We had a Commodore 64, a Commodore 128, a Commodore Amiga 500 (see a trend?). We also had a Timex Sinclair 1000 and a Timex Sinclair 2068. We had an Intellivision, and had the optional computer-add on for it. I’ve always had computer around me, and I’ve always loved playing with them and learning new things. That’s what led me to a career as a UNIX administrator, a database administrator, a storage administrator, then into a management role, and finally into an information security role I’m in now.
Along the way, I’ve done other things. I currently write (when I have time) for Neowin.net, a technology site. I also am a facilitator for the Masters program at Boston University, which I find very personally rewarding. I love competeting, either against myself or others, which probably explains my love of board games and video games. I love movies and photography, and focus on the technical aspects. I did a photoshoot for a class many years ago, and this is one of my favorite creative pictures I’ve taken.
As I mentioned, I love movies, and one of my favorite movie quotes of all time is:
Never give up, never surrender! - Galaxy Quest
And most of all, I love learning. Which is why this site exists. This page was created to test some of the Hugo Markdown language. I found a good reference page on Sourceforge that was helpful to start my journey.
