Hi, I'm Michael Ditto.
I'm a 54-year-old software engineer. I live in Santa Clara, California in the San Francisco Bay area, but am in the process of moving to Austin, Texas. I was born in San Diego, California. I most recently used to live in Reston, Virginia, and before that, in Somerset, New Jersey, and West Chester, Pennsylvania.
I created this web page in 1993 and have barely changed it since then. How sad.
However, I have started to blog occasionally. [Blog is down during move and transition to cloud server.] There you can find some personal and technical musings like my article on the myfamily.com DNS poisoning problem and some hopefully helpful examples of how to use OpenSolaris in a home/small office network.
I'm also toying with the idea of starting a YouTube channel about making and electronics.
My current interests include Maps, music, skiing, computers, and amateur radio (try my Morse Code Translator).
This web site is running on Debian Linux and the Apache web server on a Google Cloud Platform virtual machine.
Care to look at my résumé?
How about my old-fashioned (physical CDs) music collection?
