What is neodux?
A: Simply put, Neodux is my website. What does it mean? Nothing. I just thought it sounded neat, so I bought the domain.
Originally, Neodux ran from my closet at my house. It was running Slackware Linux setup with Apache, using MySQL and PHP to generate content. It's now hosted elsewhere for speed and reliability.
The weblog layout that you see right now is one of my projects that I am currently working on. Aside from the pleasure of creating something useful, at least to me, I have used Neodux to explore and learn more about PHP and MySQL. The site is created totally from scratch, as you might tell, using the vi editor.
So who am I?

I like to play/mess with the Linux operating system, program, tinker with computer hardware, listen to new music, and play online multiplayer games like Team Fortress 2, Fistful of Frags, Call of Duty and Counter Strike. I am also an amateur radio operator - my callsign is N5DUX. I have created some online tools for ham radio operators here.
I enjoy listening to many different kinds of music, usually either modern rock or electronica, more specifically: downtempo/chill, trance, deep house, acid jazz & ambient. I also enjoy listening to acoustic modern rock and covers by various bands.
