About Me
Marty AnsteyMarty Anstey


Greetings! This is my home on the web, and of course as always I'm your host, Marty Anstey.

Although this is a homepage of sorts (although i'm sure that term is largely deprecated now), i've tried to offer some brief information on my various hobbies and interests.

I have a separate section where you can read more about me if you're interested in my personal details and background.

I was born in Vancouver, BC, Canada and lived there for most of my life. In 2007, my wife and I moved to Salmon Arm, BC to raise a family. We spend quite a lot of time geocaching, which takes us to a lot of interesting places.

I am an avid fan of technology - my technical background dates back over 25 years, beginning with electronics from a young age and my first computer (an Olivetti L1 M20) in the mid-1980's.

My primary interests include FreeBSD and Linux systems administration, programming, web design, networking (peering, IP transit, BGP and longhaul/submarine networks), and music.

I also have a number of other interests including weather, model rocketry, digital and physical security, large-scale information storage and retrieval, search engines/crawlers, crypto currencies, hot sauces, growing chilies, locks, and travel - so I've detailed a few of these hobbies and interests here on the site.

Contacting me is always easy, so if you want to ask me a question, want to hire me for a job, or just say hi - feel free to drop me a line. I always try my best to respond in a timely manner!

"On the walls hung wire baskets with ferns in them, alternating with brackets carrying plaster statuary -- Garibaldi, and the infant Samuel, and Queen Victoria, and other heroes of modern Italy. Down on one side of the forecourt ran a skittle-alley, with benches along it and little wooden tables marked with rings that hinted at beer-mugs. In the middle was a small round pond containing gold-fish and surrounded by a cockle-shell border. Out of the centre of the pond rose a fanciful erection clothed in more cockle-shells and topped by a large silvered glass ball that reflected everything all wrong and had a very pleasing effect."
