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.

The best way to contact me is by email at tom@sanctum.geek.nz. I maintain an address-based whitelist, so it might take a day or two for me to see your first message. Please don’t email me asking for advertising space, guest posts, or product reviews; I will ignore it.
