About Anni

Annihilannic is a Unix system administrator with a wife and too many computers to look after. He administers a few hundred HP-UX and Linux systems for a large travel software company.

He frequents some of the Unix and Linux related forums on Tek-Tips.

When he can find enough time he plays games, the current favourites being World of Tanks and rFactor.

Past favourites include:

  • Dungeon Siege
  • Spring
  • Doom 3
  • Quake Live
  • Tzar the Burden of the Crown (an oldie but a goodie)
  • Warcraft III
  • NASCAR Heat (mods, i.e. not in NASCARs) online with AusHeat, and its groundbreaking precursor Viper Racing, both by MGI.
  • The Settlers II, III and IV (the later ones are rubbish 🙁 )
  • Dungeon Keeper I and II

Occasionally he dabbles in MMORPGs such as Legend of Mir, EverQuest and Vendetta Online, however hasn’t had enough time lately.

He has recently moved back ‘home’ to Australia from France. He has no affinity for any particular country, having been raised and schooled in various places in Europe, Africa and Australasia.

One of his pet hates is people writing about themselves in the third person.

He can be contacted here.

P.S. If you’re wondering about the unusual nick and web site names, they originally belonged to an ice demon in the the first books I read in the fantasy genre, “Blade of the Poisoner” and “Master of Fiends”, by Douglas Hill.

  1. thanks for the post on removing old HPUX devices. Every few years we have to change to a new san.
    I use it fairly often. rmsf -va is the trick. I wrote a program to scan all the disks then run it thru awk and tr to get the format right and auto erase all the old san disks once they are removed.
