Hello. I am Russell Petrick. This used to be my resume site, but I don’t use it anymore. My online presence has diminished recently. I am @dew as well.

I’m not looking for any full time jobs. I do some small business computer consulting. If you are interested, you can email me:

Peak Internet and I have resolved our disputes and the case has been dismissed.

My background: I’ve been in computers and web hosting since around 2004. I’ve worked in a lot of different areas. I sold internet service in this town for a couple of years from various ISPs. I am disabled now due to cancer and numerous treatments. I am currently not-quite but almost there terminal.

I believe in a better internet. I want everybody to have quality, high speed internet access that doesn’t suck.

I am putting another blog on here as I don’t use this as a resume site anymore. It’s been a long time since I had a blog, so we’ll see how that works out. I’ll work on getting this site presentable over the next few weeks.

If you’re looking for a good speed test website, I recommend They allow for many different types of tests and server selections, and save your data forever. That lets you have a really good snapshot of your ISP performance. I suggest creating an account to track it all. You can run something like an hourly test on a new connection to a CDN, or the Multi Server option to get an idea of the speed of a line.
