About Me

ITUnprofessional or IT-UnPro is blog/journal site of your average run-of-the-mill IT professional named Timothy. Originally another WordPress site, I built this current iteration from the ground up with PHP, MySQL, CSS, and a bit of KSH on the backend. Over the years it has been place for me to attempt some journalism, record thoughts, practice coding, and tell my one or two readers what I think is cool. Having worked in the IT industry for the past six years, I decided it was time to branch out. As of October 2011 I have resided in Vanuatu, an archipelago in the South Pacific, teaching IT with the United States Peace Corps. Updates may be fewer and farther between than normal, but there should be a flood of posts every few months, so check back often.

Obligatory: The contents of this website are mine personally and do not reflect any position of the U.S. government or the Peace Corps.

Take a look at tags aggregator, this will provide a quick look at the types of things I write about. The archive also has every post even written, because as of yet, I haven't been asked to remove any. Keep a few things in mind when you are traversing this site:

  • I have a terrible vocabulary, in that I will often employ words in strange ways.
  • I have a tendency to make things up, many times to protect others' identities, but also to make the story sound more grandiose.
  • Posts have a general self-deprecating attitude, but this is more evident in the past than now.

Thanks for checking out this about page, I hope you enjoy your time on the site! As far as contacting me, my email should be at the bottom of every page in an image format. Thanks for reading! smile!

My Away Address: From time to time I might be posting some things that my students or I would like donated. Below I have a list of things for me. Please feel free to send mail and freight to the below address. Note that it can take upwards of twelve weeks and as little as six weeks to reach me. Also Please do not send beef products, as they are illegal to import into Vanuatu. Thanks!

  • Candy
  • Granola Bars, as the ones here are French and really suck. I don't know if that is a coincidence or an actual correlation.
