The Joys of a User-space Cisco VPN Client for Linux (Thursday, March 23, 2006)

So I haven't updated in a while, though I have been busy, posting a bunch of stuff to the stuff page, and having an updated résumé on the me page. But today, I found something so wonderful that I felt I needed to share it with the world. It is a wonderful magical piece of software known as "vpnc", which is an open source replacement for the Cisco VPN Client, a horrible malicious piece of software that has a tendency to crash my machine, because of its loathsome need to crawl into the depths of my Linux kernel and chew on the wiring. The primary bit of vpnc that makes it in all ways superior, is that it lives like a nice process in user-space where should programs belong, and while it may die (though it hasn't yet), it will not be able to take the rest of my system down with it. In addition to using apt on Debian and Ubuntu, you can get vpnc from its homepage at

Hey there, just some resume advice - when you list your accompishments under your positions, do it in bullet form. It's easier to read for the busy resume skimmer. A more thorough review is available upon request. :)
