Introduce Yourselves

[ Edited ]

Hi Everyone!!


I'm KaLin and I help Anton with some of the behind-the-scenes operations of the community.  I started with Lithium part time in  Sept., 2008, retired from the Postal Service on an "early out" on New Years' Eve of 2008 and transitioned to full time with Lithium on New Years' Day of 2009.  (Short retirement, huh?)  LOL


I have 2 sons -- one graduated from WVU in May, 2012 and starts grad school at Miami of Ohio in 3 weeks and the other will be a Junior at Ball State this Fall.  So I'm an empty nester cleaning up after 2 cats now.  :)

Re: Introduce Yourselves

Hey all,


Glad we have a Water Cooler board!  My name is Larry, I reside in California and I help out around the community along with Anton and Linda.  :)


As far as some of my hobbies, I love to play video games -  I'm currently playing through the Ratchet and Clank Collection at the moment on my PS3.  Also, I am an electronic music artist and usually make songs for fun and to add something new to my iPod playlist.  


Glad to be posting with you all and hope you enjoy the new Water Cooler! :)

Re: Introduce Yourselves

Ok, I'll bite. 


My name is Clayton, I work for Cushing Academy as the Assistant Director of Technology. We're a private co-ed high school in rural Massachusetts. 


For hobbies, I love to cook and am a diehard foodie, brew beer (previous job was at a local microbrewery), fly planes when the wallet allows and above all else I am an avid motorcyclist. 


Currently I have 7 bikes in my stable, with 5 on the road. My coworkers joke that I have one for every day of the week. I road raced at Loudon (New Hampshire International Speedway) for 3 years. I've run motorcross, I've instructed trackdays, single track/enduro's, long distance touring, etc. For days that are too wet or cold, I recently picked up a 2004 Mazda MX5 Mazdaspeed Miata to have fun with. 


Planning my 9th week at Deal's Gap this June. Twistiest road east of the Mississippi, 318 corners in 11 miles. It and the roads around it in the Smokey Mountains are a motorcycle paradise. You Left Coasters are spoiled by twisty mountain roads, we have very few in New England. Most are in such bad disrepair that you can't enjoy a spirited ride without knocking your fillings out on bumps. 


Finally I have a 10 month old Great Dane puppy who keeps me quite busy. 


Hoping to get out to Sunnyvale next budget year to do the 5 day boot camp at Aruba headquarters. The more I learn about this stuff, the more I want to know.

I'm Sheila and I'm a Technical Recruiter.


I came across this community because I'd like to know more about Aruba networks and operations. I am handling some positions, mostly network engineering positions.and I have little knowledge on wireless and Aruba.


So I'm here reading posts and threads regarding Aruba and networks.  Maybe i'll learn a thing or two.

Re: Introduce Yourselves

Hello all!


I'm Jon, and I'm the Sr Network Admin for Concordia University St Paul (CSP). We just became an Aruba customer and I'm excited to start getting our gear to work with it.


A little background about me and our setup. I've been with CSP for 9 years. We have a small I.T. staff so my role actually involves: servers (physical & virtual), SAN, swithces, routers, firewalls, wireless, printers, phones (analog & VoIP), and basically anything else that connects to our network.


We were a pure Cisco shop for the past 11-12 years. This summer were putting in FortiNet firewalls, Brocade switches, and Aruba wireless. It'll be a busy summer, but our students and staff should notice a vast improvement come this fall.
