Tom Kinnen and everything you ever needed to know
about me or even more.
I'm a big Anime fan (Japanese Animation) and I run
an archive server which contains a number of anime
related files and fanfiction at http://www.fanfic.net/
(Which is down right now *sigh*).
Formally it was a LARGE general purpose archive
but as I did not have the time to keep up with it
and internet connections were becoming a problem it
is now dedicated to Fan Fictions and Fan Artests.
The server is now home to a number of Fan Fiction
authors and Fan Artists. I'm also a big SCI-FI fan
I love to read books and listen to music. Right now
I am rying to figure out if I want to give these
new e-readers a try over paper books.
On July 1st 1998 I started working for The Lucent
Remote Access Business Unit was formally Livingston
Enterprises as a "Test Engineer" doing development
for Radius ABM. They make the equipment that ISPs
and Corporate networks use to allow access to the
Net and networks via POTS, ISDN, Leased Lines and so
forth. I've used there equipment as a user and was
always impressed with their service, products and
the great people working at Livingston. Currently
I work on the 8950 AAA server since Lucent aquired
Ascend and the RADIUS ABM, Lucent PortAuthority and
Ascend NavisRadius products mergeged into a single
product called NavisRadius under
the people from the original RADIUS ABM group. The
product was later renamed to VitalAAA and now to 8950
AAA after with the merger with Alcatel.
Previous to working for Alcatel-Lucent I was the Director of
Internet Services and Senior Technician (AKA Head
Computer Geek) for USA Computers in
Fort Myers, Florida. I did everything from building
and repairing computers and desinging networks.
Before all of this I was a Trumpet Player in the US
Army. I was stationed at Ft. Jackson, Little Creek
Naval Amphib Base, Ft. Riley, and at Ft. McClellan.
Oh, and I scrubed dishes and cleaned tables in
high school :).
