About Me

Who are you?

<— That’s me, Pamela Dingle. I am a systems integrator, in the field of Identity Management. I work for a company called Nulli Secundus, and through them I consult with a number of software partners to architect, install, and customize various types of identity middleware for customers all over North America.

Are you sure you’re an Optimist??

I really am. I don’t bother to rant about software I don’t respect and recommend. I hate to see a good quality product sunk by marketing, or by the installation script, or by poor communication with partners or customers.

In other words, if I didn’t really believe that the world could be a better place, I wouldn’t bother trying to change it.

Why should we care what YOU think?

Feel free to care or not. I’m just enjoying this whole blogging thing.

What else should we know?

I am a girl. I am a geek. I am Canadian. I am married. I am a programmer by education, and a UNIX sys-admin by early training. I am not, however, a UNIX bigot – I really do believe that the world is better when you can use different tools to solve different business needs. I am actively working to make my knowledge of Wintel systems and processes equal to what I know on the UNIX side. I have been known to play a certain field game which involves a disc (aka a frisbee). I am an amateur webmaster in my spare time, and sometimes I try to take pretty pictures with my D-SLR.

  6. Hey Cutie-pie,

    (and stop looking 22! geez!)
    (what the H*LL did I just say?)

  7. We start where we find
    ourselves, at this time and place.

    Which is always the crossing of roads
    that began beyond the earth’s curve
    but whose destination we can now alter.

    This is a public saying to all my friends
    that we want to stay together. We want
    to share our lives. We mean to pledge
    ourselves through times of broken stone
    and seasons of rose and ripe plum;
    we have found out, we know, we want to continue.
    (with thanks to Marge Piercy for the sentiment and fine poetry!)

    Lost you for too long – but am quite please to discover you blogified 🙂 I miss Calgary! Houston is too hot!

  8. Oh my I can’t believe I found you! Write me at my Email Pam! I want to catch up!

    Take Care

  9. Hello Pam. Long long time no see. I’m Still in Toronto – I was wondering what you were about these days.

    Obviously you are doing well, and seemingly have growed up real good.

    I’m still a cynical optimist, so have some hope you’ll say hello, even though we haven’t spoken since 92.

    Cheers to you

    Dave (with the multi-colored volvo…)

  10. P,

    I don’t give a hoot about what people have to say
    I’m laughin’ as I’m analyzed

    Sure cause I am one till my strength is gone

    hope you are well and I love your blog.

    Keep on keepin on

  11. Pam,
    Big thanks for all your help from Ukraine 😉
