I’m Tom Ryder, a systems administrator and programmer living in New Zealand.

On this blog I post articles on systems administration and programming, particularly where it relates to my interests in Unix, GNU/Linux, shell scripting, C, Perl, Vim, Git, or whatever else takes my interest from a technical bent. A favorite topic is using command-line tools effectively and efficiently.

All of the content on this blog is my personal opinion, and in no way reflects those of my employers or clients, past or present.
