Professionally: Former cognitive scientist turned IT consultant. I specialize in telecommunications systems for SMBs and call centres, systems administration, web application & site development and SEO/social media leveraging at my company, My Solutions IT. I also act as Head Tech at TechAlberta.ca supporting home and small office PC users.

Personally: Metaphysician and natural philosopher. Scrabble fiend. Chocolate snob (mmm, 73% dark single origin Cuban!) I blog about whatever happens to outrage me at the moment or catches my fancy on a whim - everything from consumer rights to the best restaurants in Mexico to Canadian politics.

Multimedia: Venture Bros, Mozart, Once Upon a Time, Greg Egan, Doctor Who, VNV Nation, Muse, Alistair Reynolds, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead

comment Start ssh server on boot
That's unfair - a package maintainer may have changed the default behaviour, so as it only runs on login, or other services it relies on (such as networking) may not run until a user logs in.
