Over the years, some of the most helpful information I’ve found was on some random blog; I decided it was time to start my own and gather useful knowledge for the benefit of myself and others. This blog will also serve as documentation for my learning experiences with IT related technology.

I’m also very fond of the stealth video game series Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell. The protagonist of this series is a member of a fictional division of the National Security Agency named Third Echelon – the name of this blog and its domain.
