Kicking things off…

Well, here we are. I’ve been working on IT monitoring for about 20 years now, and I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for quite a few of those. Over the years I built a decent amount of experience – and in my opinion, Oscar Wilde was wrong. Experience is much more than just the name we give to our mistakes. At least for this blog, I figured I’d include not just the challenges, problems and mistakes – you’ll probably be more interested in what I did to get out of them. Hopefully it will help you get things done as well.

I’m not sure on how regularly I’ll be posting; you’ll just have to monitor this blog for updates… (yes, pun fully intended).

And in case you’re wondering: yes, it’s still work in progress. As you may have noticed, I went for a pretty old theme – one that has a sidebar, but does not have a zillion options to configure. The choice was basically made for lack of time to find a better option. With the amount of themes that’s available, it has become impossible to see the forest for the trees (and by the way, that English saying actually translates to Dutch word for word with the same meaning: “door de bomen het bos niet meer zien”.

So if you have any suggestions, please let me know! And that goes for the layout just as well as for the content. The purpose of this blog is to share experiences – and that goes to pieces if my message doesn’t come across.

And one final note: I try my best to provide accurate and useful information, but I’m by no means perfect, nor do I have the resourcs to thoroughly test and research every eventuality. Therefore, feel free to use any information – but keep in mind that you do so at your own risk. I cannot be held responsible or liable for any issues that may arise out of your use of anything you find in this blog.
