About

This is a personal blog and all posts here represent personal opinion of the author, information provided “as is” and should be used at your own discretion.

Primarily I write some tech related posts (some of them just side notes for me, “how to” / “how do I” posts) but as this is my personal blog you may expect posts on any other topics in any other formats. In addition to this blog you may also find my posts at StarWind Software Blog and AcloudA Blog.

I have been working in IT for about 15 years so far and spend a lot of this time working mainly with Microsoft technology stack. I also worked with HP Autonomy software suite and more recently have been doing product support for K2 platform. I started with Microsoft Windows at the time of Windows 3.x/95 as a home user and starting from 9x/XP in enterprise environments. As for K2 I started to work with this product since version 4.6.6 (approximately). If anyone cares my first PC was 80286 with nice orange tone CGA monitor and I still like aesthetics of that hardware… You know that was a time when you can hold CPU without worrying that it is too fragile or when you take a dedicated 3D accelerator (dedicated meaning separate from your 2D card) and clearly see that it has a lot of RAM and count the memory chips which it has on board (often in sockets allowing replacement/upgrade) and so on.

Starting from 2020 I’m changing my primary focus to cloud (AWS, Azure and GCP), DevOps, Python and Linux. While not learning DevOps related things I’m trying to work on my personal projects mainly using Python and Django.

I also have broad linguistics interests as you may infer looking at some of my posts, and apart from learning languages as a means of communication I’m interested in idioms, inkhorns, words origins, shades of meaning and lexicography. Dictionaries technology and computer assisted language learning are also fall into the bucket of my personal interests.

In case you want to support this blog you can donate some money via PayPal. We all know that there are hosting costs, and expenses on good coffee are all too often involved into writing good material.
