A little blurb about me….



I am a sysadmin/network administrator/tech-support/analyst/linux-“guru”/Cisco-guy techy that has been in the ISP/IT industry since 1995.  I walked out of college into a level-1 tech support position at Les Services Internet ABACOM inc, a Sherbrooke, Quebec area ISP in 1995.  256kbps fractional T-1, 32 33,600kbps modems, and 80486 DX4-100Mhz servers (2 of them!!).  We came a long way – frame-relay, dialup, ISDN, wireless…..  I loved that place, the atmosphere, the clients (most of them), and learned a heckofalot of stuff in the while I was there.  In a way I miss the days of dialup and 10Mbps coax….   *sigh* 🙂  Wave to Marc-Olivier Méhu, taught me alot of things to get me on my way.



In 2006 it was purchased by B2B2C.ca, my current employer.  I continue to learn boatloads of stuff in this line of work, however the Internet and the typical user has changed over the last 15 years, so I have to continue to adjust to the expectations of the workplace.  Not always easy and always a challenge.  So essentially, I have been doing the same job from 1995- , and each and every day has never been in the least bit predictable.  My current interests that I work on whenever I have a chance are of course, IPv6, virtualization with RHEV/Xen/KVM/VMware ESXi.  Fortunately I have enough leeway to explore these areas while being paid to do more mundane routine-ish things.


And why this website?


The first reason – With so many customer support calls regarding wordpress and some varying degree of misbehaviour…..I figured I should give it a try and this is its home.   The second –  I want a place to post stuff about work, and whatever other crap crosses my mind or my desk that might break the monotony of everyday work.  If I have to spend 8 hours a day on my computron I might as well have a collection of stuff to show for it.  Besides, if you don’t like what you read, the Internet is full of other stuff to go to, use your google-fu.

If all goes as planned, this will be a mix of stuff I have to work on, and random off the wall BS to keep things light.

Originally this site was named http://random.cconn.info/, but in late May 2014 I noted that a new gTLD was made available, .ninja.  My geek side went into overdrive and I had to have one 🙂  (linux|cisco).ninja was already taken, so commandline.ninja it is pc


If for some reason you feel the need to contact me, I can be reached at cconn (a_t) commandline.ninja (change the a_t for @ in case you haven’t figured it out 😉

  1. To whom it may concern,

    I am putting together an ebook showing people who are doing interesting things with new gtld websites and I am interested in using commandline.ninja, with your permission ofcourse.

    I would like to include the domain name, a brief description of what your site does and a screen shot.

    Please let me know if that would be ok as It wont be included without your say.
