One cannot be clear about one's aims without simplicity, one cannot realize his or her potential without quiet undistracted focus , Zhuge Liang(诸葛亮)


Welcome to Nighthour.SG , a website that focus primarily on technology topics which may be of interest to technies and geeks. My name is Chiang Lin. I am a Singaporean living in Singapore, a modern city state.

I am passionate about technology and have worked in various IT roles and functions over the years, both from the user end as well as from the vendor side. My experience includes IT helpdesk and customer support, webhosting, system and solution engineering, system/network administration and recently, information and cybersecurity. I have a Bachelor of Computer Science from University of Adelaide and is CISSP certified.

On this website, I plan to share technology articles and some of the projects/code I have done. Hopefully, some of these content may be useful to readers and visitors. The website will primarily be in english, but I may translate parts of it and some articles to my mother tongue language, chinese.

The content of this site is based on my personal opinions. Readers/visitors may have different views which is a good thing. If you have feedback, comments, suggestions, corrections etc... You can reach me via the contact form . For more about the genesis of this site, you can refer to this first article.

Like many Singaporean males, I have done my National Service duty, and served as an Infantry Rifleman during my NS years. I have completed my full reservist 10 years cycle. As with humans, we may not necessarily like the tough training during NS, but like many things in life, the "fun memories" etc... emerge only after we have completed the training. Singapore is a small nation and depends on all abled Singaporean males to serve NS. This is to ensure our sovereignty and our way of life. If you are a Singaporean reader, it is a gentle reminder to support the NS system.

An online version of my resume is available here. Feel free to drop me a message to request access if you are a recruiter.

跟很多新加坡男生一样, 我服过兵役,曾经是个步兵团枪手。 我也完成了整个国民服役过程。 虽然国民服役很辛苦,但意义重大。 新加坡是个小国,需要全民来保卫主权, 确保我们的生活方式。 如果您是个新加坡读者,希望您能支持国民服役。
