I have been a tester, manager, automator, and release angineer for over 15 years. Working in Windows, *nix and distributed environments I've come in as the first part of QA and built groups or joined existing groups. I like process and am an evangelist for process improvement. I also dabble in tool smithing, while I am not a great coder I stick with it and have built up a nice array of tools over the years in Perl, Ruby and PowerShell. I automate when I can now, as that is my prime passion, and I wear all kinds of hats doing whatever is needed but always handling code from test to production.

I have many interests in cooking, reading, home improvement, MakerSpaces and many more. You'll find me on many SX's here.

I currently work for NaviNet as a Software Engineer in Test II

comment SharePoint Farm containing two servers, how to configure one server to work in case the other went down
We handle ours with a Load Balancer that just redirects to the other server in case one is not reachable

comment SharePoint Farm containing two servers, how to configure one server to work in case the other went down
Do you mean a one server install with failover or just the Web Front Ends having failover in case one Web Server goes down?

comment SharePoint Site App Pools restarting outside of scheduled time
Not a bad option but considering this is our production environment this would be really terrible to implement. I'll keep it in mind as a last resort if I can somehow duplicate the conditions to generate the app pool restart then maybe this will get me the infomration I need.
