I’m Patrick Ogenstad, and since 1998 I’ve been working as an IT consultant at Netsafe, a Swedish service provider helping companies with their network environments. As many others in my field of work I really enjoy using computers and to learn new things about them.
During my years in the computer industry I have worked mostly with the Windows environment, Cisco, and I also like working with Linux. A specific interest I have is that of computer security, combined with another hobby of mine I came up with the idea to create this site. The other hobby was writing.
I have always liked writing short stories and I always seem to have ideas flying around my head, but in the past I’ve had trouble getting those ideas down on paper (oh, sorry I meant to the screen). The fiction I’ve written for this site is available here.
Starting up a blog would give me a place to publish my stories, it would also allow others to comment or send feedback regarding my work.
Being able to get feedback is one of the things I love about the Internet. In August 2004 I created the SYDI Project, which goal is to help system administrators with network documentation. I have received emails from all over the word from people who; have thanked me, commented on the software and had feature requests.
If you have any opinion about this site, please post a comment to one of the posts or contact me.
