My name is Nathan Abbott and I have created this site so that I may share my thoughts and insights into different technologies.  My goal is to post tips, ideas and software reviews related to F5 Networks® BIG-IP®, iRules, MOSS 2007, malware removal and general technology related stuff.  I consider myself to be a Jack Of All Trades simply because application delivery can and often does cover so many areas that are so wide ranging it can be often be hard to define.

If you are curious about my qualifications, I have spent several years in the I.T. field performing various tasks.  I am proud to say that I have been selected by F5 Networks to be an F5 Networks MVP member.  I hold certifications for the BIG-IP® LTM (F5 Certified System Engineer), MOSS 2007, Comptia A+, Comptia N+ and CNET Copper Cabling.  I have attended training courses for MOSS 2007 Administration, SQL Database Normalization and SANS: Identifying and Removing Malware. I am a computer geek and really enjoy what I do for a living.

I have been mentioned a few times in DevCentral Podcasts and my MVP profile page can be found on DevCentral here:
