"ormaaj" is Dan Douglas, a programmer from the Twin cities, Minnesota. I've worked in all sorts of areas from web development to unix systems programming to .NET development to database. For some reason or other I find unix shells interesting enough to study and write about. Good documentation and reference material in the area of unix scripting and utilities is sorely lacking and needs to be modernized. Poor quality scripts in critical areas of infrastructure are an under-recognized risk that can only be addressed through better informed users and developers.
