Lon Hohberger (lhh-at-redhat_com)

Lon is a software engineer who works for Red Hat.

Lon started experimenting with Linux in or around 1993, beginning with SLS (whatever version included Linux 0.97) disks downloaded from local BBS systems over a 2400BPS modem on an Intel 80386SX-16 based machine. He owes his entire Linux career to the inventors of the ZModem protocol, which had automatic download recovery.

At the present time, he is working on architectural, technical, administrative, and feature comparisons between the components of the Linux Cluster Project and the components of Linux-HA.

His typical duties involve working on clustered resource (group) management and failover software for the Linux Cluster Project as well as a cluster abstraction library. Lon also has experience in various other areas as well, typically being adaptive as necessitated by constantly changing goals. In addition on his current development goals for the Linux Cluster Project, Lon is somewhat involved with support and bugfixes of Red Hat Cluster Suite.

Typically, Lon approximates mouse volume on mailing lists.

In his spare time, Lon scales cliffs, rides motorcycles, plays paintball, and writes parsers.

Lon has a blog and a Red Hat page (outdated) too.
