"Advanced Systems" Magazine is no more. Fortunately, its editors are creating "SunWorld Online" - THE Sun specific online magazine. Check it Out and watch for my "Pete's Wicked World" security column there.

I've left Brown Unversity as of July 28th. I've had a great time, met great people, and learned much about systems and management. But it's time to move on. I'll be joining a small VAR/ISV/Systems Consulting company, Corporate Technologies, Inc (CTI) where I'll do system administration consulting and teaching, specializing in Sun and Solaris. I'll put a pointer here when CTI establishes a web presence.
Finger me.
