About Mike Rodriquez

All the Pages (are my days) is the occasional journal of Mike Rodriquez. Over the years I’ve written about technology, politics and travel, with a number of recipes and photo essays posted as well. Lately most of my entries are heavy on the photos, with shots taken while bike riding (especially on the Meadowlark Trail), from our travels and while engaging in one my various hobbies.

The site is searchable (see sidebar at left) and there are both category and monthly archives available, so have a look around; you just don’t know what you might find!

There is also an RSS feed, and I use Newsblur as my RSS feed reader.

All the Pages is powered by Drupal WordPress and hosted at pair.com.

I’ve published a number of other web sites, and they are listed on the All the Pages page.

More about me

I’m in my early 60’s, a father and grandfather; still in love and happily married to Sheryl since 1974. We’re originally from Lindsborg, Kansas and lived in the SF Bay area from 1978 to 2004.

Prior to that we lived in Auburn, Washington for part of 1974-75. We still have some family up there, though virtually all of our extended family lives in central Kansas, including Salina, Lindsborg, McPherson and Wichita.

In 2004 Sheryl and I bought a lovely house in Lindsborg, I made arrangements to telecommute to my job, and so we moved back to Lindsborg.

I’ve worked in the high-tech industry my whole career, starting at GTE Lenkurt in San Carlos. My first real computer experiences were gained on this job. I used HP 9825, 9835 and 9845 instrument controllers and had exposure to a DEC PDP-8.

I started using unix (bsd 4.1) in 1984, and also got my first email account (using mm under TOPS-20) in July of that year. Since then I’ve held a number of systems related positions, including wearing of the host, post and webmaster hats at various times.

Up until June 2015 I developed and managed a variety of web-based collaboration systems in support of the research activities at HP Labs.

At present, I’m semi-retired, and semi-looking for a position. When I post a resume and a link to Linked-In, then I will be seriously looking, but if you know of any opportunities at present, please contact me!
