Hello there! Thanks for checking out this blog.

The idea behind this blog was to create a place where I could share my IT experiences. As I have progressed further in my career, I’m meeting more and more people who are much earlier in theirs. There are a number of things I wish I had learned early in my career, so my intent is to share those types of experiences.

I’ve been working in the IT industry as a network administrator since 2007. I have performed enough migrations, upgrades, replacements, etc to make someone crazy – but there is a lot of knowledge that comes with that. I want to be able to share that with other people, so that maybe someone else can find it helpful to them.

As of late 2017, I’ve begun studying for the CCIE R&S exams. So I will definitely be posting some content relating to my studies and the technologies covered in the exams.

I wrote briefly about my primary goals for this blog in the first post here. Check it out!

If you find the content here is helpful – please share a link with your friends or co-workers! It would mean a lot to me. Also, if you would like to share your story of how you got started in IT, send me a message at: submissions (at) 0x2142.com.

A quick note about the ads – This site is entirely paid for and supported by myself. I made the decision to place advertisement on this site to help support it. I have no intentions of trying to make extra money, but I hope that I can get to a point where the site pays for itself. I ask that if you do use any sort of ad-blocking extensions, please consider white-listing this website. I also appreciate any donations in the form of coffee. Thanks in advance!
