pfSense Multi Site Backup Script

I manage many pfSense firewalls and have just pushed a useful backup script to GitHub that we use to automate backups of all the remote pfSense boxes.

You can read more at Outside Open or head over to GitHub to grab a copy.



Outside Open launches new web site!

Outside Open has a new web site!  As many of you know, Trevor Young and I launched OO almost two years ago. We have been looking forward to getting a site up but have had the excellent problem of too much work.


We built the site internally, (because that’s what we do ;) ) using WordPress as framework.  Thanks to Chris Mundell, Linda Wright and Kendall Ruth for copy writing and editing as well as the OO team and Steve Searer (who did most of the actual work!.)

Check out for a dose of nerds and technology!

Outside Open is an IT Services technology company based in Santa Barbara.

On January 20, 2013 my dad passed away after a short battle with cancer.  It was very sudden, he didn’t know that he was sick until just over a month earlier when doctors discovered metastasized cancer throughout his body.
I am very thankful that I was able to get to South Africa with my brother and sister and to spend his last days with them by his side.  We had several amazing days where dad was fully lucid and chatty – we looked at old photos, laughed and told stories.
The day before he passed he said that “this has been a healing time” and a time for which I am truly grateful – I will miss you dad.

We were deeply moved by the loving friends that surrounded dad and without pause also drew next to us and offered support and love – thank you all.
