metva.com -- a little about metva


From time to time people wonder "What is Metva". Maybe its quicker to tell you what Metva isn't. Metva is not an ISP. Metva isn't in West Australia and has no connection with or arrangement with Netway Technologies there. Metva does have an interest in Netway Communications in Victoria, a completely unrelated company developing and manufacturing of GPS based AVL (vehicle tracking) systems. So the long and the short of this is, if you came here looking for free hours or Web hosting or any of those bandwidth related Internet reasons, you're at the wrong place. Try one of the links below for a serious ISP who (generally) knows what they're doing:


So, what is Metva? Metva is the company I, Enno, used to do my contracting under. I'm a professional computer programmer and occasionally a consultant. Seeing as I represent the entire Metva workforce, Metva's capabilities closely match those on my resume, which I'll happily provide to those who ask. The precis is: systems administrator (UNIX and other midrange systems), developer (C, Java, PHP, perl, assembler, web pages, web applications, embedded systems AVR/ARM/and older), have led teams and frankly am moving my career in that direction.


In practice, Metva can attempt bigger things (say design and manufacture custom hardware with embedded software) by subcontracting out work to engineers and others of my acquaintance, but so far no one has required that sort of work from Metva.


OK, so who are those other people who seem to have had accounts here? Some of them are friends, some are people I've worked with and some are people who just asked nicely. Metva is mostly here to support me earning my living but the incremental cost of a few extra users (most of who either have a few Web pages or just collect their mail here) is low. If you need an account somewhere or feel the need for a new mailbox, feel free to ask. But be warned that in these days of fiscal restraint, you'll need a more compelling reason to offer than you were surfing past and saw my light on.
