Hi, I’m Michael!

I’ve been a Linux / Unix System Administrator now for about 20 years.

4Cats.Info was originally born as Puppet4Cats, a site that was envisioned as my notes about learning and using Puppet.  Since then, it’s become more than that so I figured I should rename it.

For now, it’s a site with random thoughts and notes.

Short articles and crib notes, written for people with the attention span of a cat.

I’m always learning, so please feel free to comment with constructive insight or corrections.

Why am I writing a blog when I’m still learning <fill in the blank> myself?

I figure that everyone has a different way of explaining things, that my way of explaining things might help somebody else make sense of what they’re learning.  By writing what I’ve learned into my own words, it might also serve to focus my thoughts so I can internalize it and understand it better.

A rising tide lifts all boats…
