Hello everyone,

If the subject title has you already asking yourself, "What is a linx/unix?" Then this message means nothing :lol:. However, if you instantly knew what I was talking about, and you have or had experience in the web hosting industry then can you please contact me via PM or email?

The reason? Well, I personally don't know anything about Linux/Unix optimization... especially through command lines. The hosting center tells me that they can do some of these "services," but at a rate of $50.00 per HALF HOUR... I simply cannot afford that, nor do I really see the reasoning since I'm sure things are pretty simple if you know what you're doing.

So, if you know your stuff about Linux/Unix and wouldn't mind answering a few questions... please contact me.

Thank you for your time and energy...

Sincerely,
Andrew Tatum

Linus is the first name of the father of linux, so there is a connection.

Nope... that "dirty little dude" in Peanuts was Pigpen.

Glad I could finally help on a computer tech thread.:D

Yes, this is true, however, the above picture is a picture of Linus.

Take a look for yourself.

Oh, I'm with you on that. The point is that the dirty little dude wasn't Linus., -- 'twas Pigpen. And Peppermint Patty had her moments, too.:)

I can write basic C++ programs in unix, as well as work with files and directories...

unfortunately I don't work with linux much.......but if you need any help with firewalls/routers/networking/ or windows security that's what I do for a living. certified in Check Point (CCSE/CCSA), Cisco (CCNA/CCDA), Microsoft (MCSE) and hold my CISSP as well. Currently I'm contracted out to a government agency and soley responsible for their internet infrastructure that services about 500,000 in payroll so a lot of online applications. Anyways, if you need of those skills just drop me an email and I'd be glad to answer and questions, make recommendations or make up any diagrams etc. if your hosting needs should change.

Regards,
James

i am versed in unix.... what kind of "optimization" are they talking about. You need to be careful, there is a lot of "smoke and mirrors" stuff going on out there....

I know ActionScript (Macromedia Flash) and Lingo (Macromedia Director).

That's the extent of my object-oriented programming know-how. :rolleyes:

i didn't realize that Actionscript and Lingo are Object-Oriented. I didn't realize that Macromedia even knew what Object-Oriented was! Is this true or are you being facetious? :D

Maybe he's just throwing around the phrase "object oriented" to sound leet

Well, those language are OOP type- they have the same structure. I mean, if you know C++ you can easily write ActionScript and Lingo. Those languages are based on C++ which is (basically) OOP. Right?

I'm no expert. :rolleyes:

Now back to Linux.

jbond you need your CCIE as well before i'll be impressed :P

jbond

lol......was thinking of working towards it :) although I think I'd like to first work towards the CCSP for security as that's what I like more.

I'm actually in the process of potentially changing careers altogether.....to be a special agent in the FBI :lol:....seriously....I am though. Took the initial testing a year ago and passed but never followed through but cuz of my certs and experience in IT they kept calling me every couple of months (i turned down the NSA 2 yrs ago as well cuz I had just moved to New Orleans 2 months before...) and I decided in Dec. to go ahead and pursue it so I'm headed up to Kansas City (regional HQ office for the new orleans office) next week to do the written/oral interviews and then have to take the poly/drug/physical and wait on my background to clear.

I think I'll like getting out of IT and that would be a pretty cool job to have.... :)

on a side note, my brother graduated from ucf (as did i) and works as a private / jet pilot up there still. you flying up there for a job as well or just for fun?



LINGO? My wife watches that stupid game show on TV :lol: At least they got a new female host with, how should I say,....2 rather large and nice redeeming qualities :)

kinda. C++ and other object-oriented programming languages are called object-oriented because in the programming you create classes, and then objects of those classes which reference those classes. It is a strictly text-based programming system.

ActionScript and Lingo..... i am not familiar with them, but the fact they are from macromedia brings doubt to my mind that they are object-oriented... and unless they are a programming language, they definitely aren't object-oriented.

are they programming languages?

watch what you say about the NSA. Some people on these boards may currently work for them. ;)

lol......i didn't say anything negative.....just that i turned them down for personal reasons although working in network security it would have been GREAT to have them on my resume. You didn't perhaps mean NASA...?

03-26-2004, 07:33 PM

well, as of a couple years ago they at least put a 'real' sign out in front of their building up at Ft. Meade.......they never acknowledged it until a few years ago although everyone knew where it was. They're a little paranoid over there, and deservedly so....

AJ. I'm a computer engineer or at least I'm supposed to be. While I've haven't worked with Linux since my college days (abaout 2 years ago). I may be able to find some help. I know this thread is very old but I hae been unable to reply since you post it. For some reason can't reply if I'm not logged before presssing the reply button. I mean If I press the reply button and then I use the loggin feature I get a message saying that i haven't selected a board. Just thought I point that at to you while I"m at it.

Maybe I'm too late. But I have been a Unix Administrator for over 10 years working primarily with Sun Microsystem's Solaris OS and RedHat Linux. I used to do a lot of Web stuff for Charles Schwab. If you still need assistance/advice whatever, let me know and I'll be glad to assist in any way I can.
