David Vassallo's Blog

If at first you don't succeed; call it version 1.0


“Excellence Does Not Require Perfection”

A blog about an average guy’s experience with IT. I envision it more of a place where to place my notes, share them with friends, invite comments, and hopefully help any ‘net user with problems they may be facing.

I’m David by the way… a Malteser living in Malta. I currently work for a turnkey IT consultancy company. My past experience included working for an online gaming company, ensuring uptime and smooth running. I’ve also worked at BlueCoat for a couple of years, apart from spending a further 3 years working with SonicWALL (a division of Dell). (Disclaimer :  I love Linux, PaloAlto, BlueCoat and SonicWALL products, expect me to be biased ;) )
