Stephen Smoogen

I am a 450+ year old Linux administrator who hasn't updated his page in years. My hobbies are role-playing games and computer hacking. My favourite job was working for Los Alamos National Laboratories Computer Incident Response Team.

I believe in and try to act with "Moderation in all things, even Moderation." I am currently working on the EPEL Steering Committee, and working EPEL-8 packages.
