About

This is a blog about Information Technology (IT), weird bikes, and other random topics that is maintained by me (Neil Sabol).

I consider myself to be a jack of many IT trades, who enjoys architecting, deploying and supporting solutions to facilitate research, administrative processes, and other business operations. My 10 years of IT experience in Albuquerque, New Mexico spans various industries (government, healthcare, higher education, military/aerospace, Fortune 500) and various functions.

I am a huge proponent of open source solutions in the enterprise and enjoy providing outstanding customer support for various applications and platforms.

My favorite technologies (and interests) include: Amazon Web Services, Apache (webserver), cPanel/WHM, F5 (LTM and APM), Hugo, Jamf, Linux, SCCM, Windows, and WordPress. Some of my ancillary technology interests include 2 factor authentication, Microsoft Office 365, and scripting (Bash, JavaScript, PHP, PowerShell).

I also enjoy business / technical writing and data analysis of all types (Excel, Splunk, Cherwell Searches/Widgets/Dashboards, etc.). When I am not immersed in Information Technology, you might find me riding a weird bike (outdoor elliptical, kick bike), longboarding, volunteering with Junior Achievement, jamming on the cajon, or binge watching a SciFi series.
