Who am I?

I am the creator behind nixCraft ( and, a site that helps new and seasoned Linux and Unix/*BSD sysadmins/developers who want to make the most of the sysadmin-hood.

Okay why I am starting a Patreon account:

nixCraft is a single (one man) indie operation and online since 2002. I am a seasoned sysadmin and a trainer for the Linux, operating system/Unix shell scripting.  I had started this site for sharing my knowledge and documenting my experience as a sysadmin. Over last 15+ years site grown a lot. 

Now we are in 2020. I have written over 7000+ tutorials, FAQs and long blog posts. Apart from posts, I regularly reply tech support emails, maintain Linux shell scripting tutorial wiki, update old tutorials with relevant information and moderate comments. nixCraft has become a 40+ hour/week job for me. I want to nixCraft to grown more for a long time. Create more content and may be video tutorials too. I am obsessed with writing and helping others to learn Linux and open source software. I believe nixCraft should continue for a long time.

Why support nixCraft on Patron?

  • Pretty much any Linux/Unix beginner or intermediate searching for Linux help will end up on my site. 
  • Often, I get an email telling me that you learned practical skills over the years and I helped you in your day-to-day job.
  • Managing site like nixCraft take lots of time and effort.
  • The way Patreon works is a fan or reader can donate whatever they want per month, and the donation is recurring each month after that. 

What I will use the money for:

  1. Hosting - Hosting servers are now sponsored by Linode (thank you!).   
  2. CDN Bandwidth  - CDN Bandwidth is sponsored by Cloudflare (thank you!).
  3. Internet connection : This also includes my home office ADSL2/FTTH and 4G LTE bandwidth.
  4. DNS hosting 
  5. Backup servers
  6. Email hosting/routing 
If you prefer to make a one-time donation or use a platform other than Patreon, please use a PayPal.

Thanks for any help you can offer if you decide to, and thanks for being a reader!
