Almost as though I had too much stuff for just one blog . . .
NetSysHax blog with Wireshark header image
NetSysHax is a blog that was established to offer technical stories and solutions that seem relevant. Alex & I work together during our day jobs, but we both like to offer consulting services when those opportunities arrive. We like to share technical insight and solutions, especially when most problems only need the right tools to become a success story.
Self Promotion needs to be a success story too.
I need to post more stuff on the NetSysHax blog, as well as on this one, my RadioActive site. So bear with me as I work on both in parallel (with appropriate cross-links).
Thanks.. Please visit often for new stuff

When I first heard of this place, I thought Mike (N4OFA) had been in a closed room with his paint fumes for too long… An old spy-satellite station up in the mountains ? Huge radio telescope dishes ? And they let him pull cables and work on stuff ? Had to be the paint fumes. Over the years tho, I have come to learn more of the history of the old Rosman Tracking Station.
And more importantly, some of what is going on up there these days.
Visit PARI.EDU on-line to find more detail….
So – I introduced myself to PARI and some of the folks there, and have been to visit a few times. On this most recent trip I became an official volunteer, and will be helping to establish more functionality into their Information System Infrastructure management activites, and to further document the networks and the systems that support the PARI mission & operations.
Recently PARI has installed the upgraded feedboxes for both of the 26m dish antennas, and expect to be testing, calibrating, and all that other magic stuff to integrate this into a world-class interferometer. These are certainly exciting times up on the hilltop in Western North Carolina. Hidden Treasure indeed.
I’ll be back to this blog from time to time, with more pictures and stories to tell.
