I am Roberto Katalinic, self confessed IT overlord and a sponge for everything IT. I have spent more of the last 20 years in front of a computer than in bed! Learning things is more fun than sleeping :) In my professional career, I progressed from a junior IT support engineers to IT Manager in a few years. Though my job responsibilities changed as my career progressed, my thirst for knowledge of all things IT never died and I continued to learn and amass knowledge. My interest span from Operating systems (Windows, Unix, Linux, BSD, Amiga OS), Web development (mainly Wordpress), Source control systems, systems security and firewall and a lot more.
