[[http://dodgydivetours.blogspot.com.au/|Andrew Perry]]: sysadmin for a small council on the south coast. while predominantly a microsoft site i usually have at least 1 or 2 FreeBSD boxes because sometimes there is just some things that you can't do without an operating system that comes with built in useful tools. my boss said we should have a few of our guys more familiar with open source stuff, so i thought that if there is the vaguest chance we're going to introduce any open source operating systems into my workplace, i'm gonna make sure it's FreeBSD.

-{{trev.jpg|Trev}} 
- 
-[[trev@sentry.orgNoSpam|Trev Roydhouse]] is a lawyer who masqueraded during 1994-2002 as an 
-electronic product developer and IT Consultant at a large multi-domestic 
-legal publishing company (where he had masqueraded as a writer of 
-commentary on the Australian taxation laws during 1982-1993). 
-He was also the designer, coder and sometime maintainer of a print and 
-electronic SGML publishing system running as an Intranet under Solaris 
-for the company's editorial department from 1994-2002. Alas, his system was 
-phased out in 2006 in favour of a customised "off-the-shelf" multi-million 
-dollar system which took four years of customisation to implement similar 
-functionality. 
- 
-After 20 years, 3 months and 5 days at that company, he resigned and took a break 
-from full-time employment for 8 months until taking up a systems developer 
-position at one of the world's largest, free-access, online legal information websites 
-(www.austlii.edu.au) where automated data acquisition and text processing 
-is the name of the game. 
- 
-In pre-Internet days he masqueraded as the sysop of the Sentry BBS which powered up 
-at 300 bps on a Vic-20 with 3.5K RAM and a cassette drive in 1983 running CBM BASIC 
-BBS software which he ported from Apple BASIC. In June 1986 he joined FidoNet and filled 
-the administrative positions of Net Coordinator, Regional Coordinator (NSW &amp; QLD) and 
-Zone Coordinator (Australia/NZ/PNG) before withdrawingin November 1998. During that time 
-he programmed various DOS utilities and wrote the technical and user documentation for 
-the Opus BBS. 
- 
-In his spare time twixt 1998 and 2001, he completed a part-time LLM in Media, Communication and 
-Information Technology Law at UNSW (essays on these topics are on www.sentry.org). In even more 
-spare time at the end of 2002 and first half of 2003, he reverse-engineered a D-Link ADSL router 
-and wrote in Borland's Delphi what became a popular Windows utility for interrogating it (later ported 
-in just a couple of hours via Borland's Kylix to Linux/FreeBSD - see www.sentry.org). 
- 
-These days he works with FreeBSD and Solaris, and dabbles with Red Hat Linux (exclusively used 
-for Kylix) and, may the daemon forgive him, a couple of Windows 2000 machines on his otherwise 
-pure-Unix home network (sentry.org). He is currently awaiting the arrival of Leopard before 
-purchasing an Apple Mac mini for further dabbling.
