I’m Cody Jackson, a computer science major at CSU Sacramento, and boy, do I love tinkering with computers and network hardware. I’ve learned most of my computing knowledge through research and hands-on implementation (and, on occasion, by picking up the pieces after an experiment goes sideways). I’m a dedicated student and a volunteer tutor for the Computer Science department.
I’ve used various Linux distributions over the past decade. Currently, the farm is running CentOS 5/6, (X)Ubuntu 12.04.3 and 14.04, and OpenSuse 12.3. I also have Windows XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8 on a few computers. And I finally have a Mac! (Finally!)
My hobbies and interests include music (particularly jazz and blues, but anything will do), creative writing, and art. I play electric blues guitar in my spare time and am slowly learning to paint in watercolor.
I often write about my shiny HughesNet modem, but I am not affiliated with HughesNet in any way other than being a customer.
