PJ Waskiewicz is my name, and no you don't have to know how to pronounce the last name.
My first name is Peter, but mostly everyone calls me PJ. I'm a Linux Kernel developer at Intel, working in the Open Source Technology Center. I work on the x86 CPU core code in the Linux kernel, and have extensive background in Ethernet driver and network stack development.
When I do spend my spare time, I have a number of things I enjoy doing. I love the outdoors, even during allergy season, and I also love to brew my own beer. I also thoroughly enjoy playing with my two cats and my dog with the laser pointer; that just never gets old.
My IRC handle for #opw and kernelnewbies is ppwaskie. I lurk there using BIP, so I will see messages later even if I'm not physically connected.
