35 years in Information Technology
After some odd years as a Commodore 64 and Apple IIe enthusiast, in the second half of the 1980s information technology became my career. I became an Apple Macintosh and Atari ST user, and also began to embrace PC compatibles. At this same time I began to acquire my Unix skills with SCO Xenix and later SCO Unix.
In 1989 I went to work for what became one of the largest authorized Apple dealers and a Fortune 500 company. Over the course of my career I spent over a decade working for 2 different authorized Apple dealers.
In the early 1990s I started building systems with FreeBSD Unix. In 1997 I started a company primarily focused on selling, installing and maintaining BSDI Unix servers of various sorts (see image above). For a period in the early 2000’s, I was an open systems engineer (Sun Solaris Unix mainly) for a company that manufactured enterprise level storage systems and became a part of Sun Microsystems which was later acquired by Oracle Corporation.
In the 2010’s I worked for my third Fortune 500 company, a medical software developer, as a SQL database support specialist. From 2016 until I retired from information technology in 2020, I was the architect, builder, and maintainer of a successful enterprise level e-commerce site running on Ubuntu Linux.
Free of Capitalism
Hopefully synthesizers are my main technical pursuit these days. For a long time, computers were as exciting to me as a box of nails. Void of corporate robots, deadlines, quotas, meetings and what not, I seem to be warming up again to my love of technology. Mostly related to recording electronic music, but also a tad of this site – YehudaRothschild.com, which uses the WordPress content management system and runs on my Ubuntu Linux web server. I’ve been very excited about getting a Mac Studio M1 Ultra, a Studio Display, and looking forward to getting the new Ableton Live DAW version, and Sample Robot.
