I am Vinod Chacko and I am a Unix admin by profession. I lives at Kochi and I manages NIX servers for a living. I am managing this site of my own and I use this to blog my thoughts or document some of the tips and tricks which I feel is not easily available in internet.

I do things that make me happy and most of the time driving and seeing places makes me a lot happier. That said, I have not yet got a chance to travel outside India :). Eventhough I do have a few extra pounds, I love to workout in the gym and I try to be regular as possible. I do see a lot of movies and I love to hear good Indian music, even-though I am quite open to the western music too.

I try to stick on to my ethics and principles on my personal and professional life.

FreeBSD is my favorite server OS and I am using Ubuntu for my desktop.
