This process will allow you to sync files between multiple Shields running RetroArch using a Synology NAS (DS416j). This is my current setup that I have been running for 6 months now and I have no issues with starting in one room and finishing a game in another. There are some caveats Concept The NAS…
I’m a huge fan of Linux but I’ve been know to dabble with Windows and Mac environments. Let’s face it, all the good games are on Windows! I’m a regular Linux user, so I’m not afraid to work on the command line and tackle a problem. I enjoy the terminal and find the challenge of finding a problem and creating a solution to be as enjoyable as playing the new Zelda game on the Switch! I have a lot of experience managing Linux, Windows, and Mac servers. I am a fan of CentOS for server environments but am also aware that technologies work better in the proper environment. I enjoy system administration and designing infrastructure. I love the cloud and have a lot of experience with AWS (even got certified to prove it). Designing scalable architecture is challenging and fun; luckily I’ve been able to make a great career out of it! Chef makes it more enjoyable and I get to use Ruby, which I never really thought I’d be happy about. I started off coding in PHP and building websites, mostly for local Djs, this evolved into a passion that I did for over a decade in industries ranging from broadcasting, healthcare, real-estate and debt-collection. Lately I have moved towards server management and solutions architect. I have a strong interests in security so this has lead me to designing more stable systems without sacrificing security, yeah… I do not disable SELinux. I know, scary right?! I have proposed, designed and implemented numerous security policies that have strengthened company security. I could go on and on about other feats I’ve accomplished and how great I am but writing about myself isn’t something I really like to do. So let’s discuss what I can do for you.

1450 Inc / EHRScope
Senior Programmer / Systems Administrator
I ran the programming department, worked with the design team, and took on a lot of the IT directors’ workload. I added InfoSec practices into the company and software. I consulted for outsource projects and company needs. I also worked on the core system the company depended on for its day-to-day operations. I improved algorithms to increase not only speed and memory consumption but also accuracy. I updated the company servers, software, and code to be up-to-date with the latest technology and security standards. Worked with teams daily, ranging from accounting to sales. I mostly worked on proprietary solutions but there were also many WordPress customizations for different services.
JJL Processing Corp.
I was hired to fix their current system the company runs on. Much of the code was encrypted and there was no way to decrypt the files. I worked on two systems and configured the servers for this company. The first system was the main software the company used, proprietary debt management software, where I rewrote the entire core of the system to improve overall performance. I also redesigned their database infrastructure to be more scalable and handle the workload the company needed using database design patterns. The second system was a pretrial management system that I worked on with a team. I designed the core of the system while the team designed the UI. That system sold for $10 million.
RSS Pieces / DevElement LLC.
I implemented scalable architecture to a custom social media platform with high traffic. I increased and improved the system security by rewriting the entire core of the system. Originally, the system was vulnerable to XXS, session fixation/hijacking, SQL injections, and many more. When I left this company the system was running 500% faster and more secure. I was involved in rebranding the company and implementing policies.
SoN9ne Programming LLC
This was a freelance company I had with a friend. We worked a lot on DJ websites working with Clear Channel Radio. Also did a lot of club websites in the local area and some commerce sites. This company started my passion for programming, as this was pre-WordPress days.
