I started this site around December of 2006 as a suggestion from a college professor. Today www.johndball.com is a hub for my thoughts and “how-to” guides. I maintain this site as a personal reference point for many of my projects hence the tagline “Dumping ground for thoughts I’ll need a year from now.” Although I recently changed this tagline to “You can’t get infected if you can’t get connected” – a phrase I say whenever somebody complains that they can’t download malicious payloads from shady sites.

I work full-time in the information security field and I volunteer my time in my local community. Outside of information and physical security, I enjoy spending time fishing and hiking the backwoods of Virginia, the Carolinas, Tennessee, and my home state of Louisiana.
