About Herlo

Hi, my name is Clint Savage, people online call me herlo.

I regularly get asked where the name “Herlo” came from. My simple reply is “nowhere, I made it up”. However, for some crazy reason people just cannot believe that I made up this simple yet easy to use alias.

I’ve been asked, is it the opposite of “His hi”? As if it were funny or something. Anyway, my name online is Herlo, lets say it together HER-LO. Very easy. I own http://herlo.org, right now it just redirects to this site.

I am very into computers, especially the web with all the cool technologies it affords us. Here is a short list of my interests; Python, Linux, System Administration, Movies, TV, Baseball, and many more.

I worked as a Linux consultant and instructor for 9 years. It gave me the opportunity to travel and see the world.  I realized I missed being home and doing things with friends and family, so I settled down and currently work as a system administrator for the Linux Foundation.

I have an amazing woman to share my life with, she’s daring enough to have married me twice! We have a sixteen year old son named Shaun, and an almost 6 year old son who I absolutely love. I don’t get to spend enough time with the oldest one, since he lives with his mom in California, and I’m in Utah.

If you have any comments about this site, please go ahead and leave them here, I am sure I will respond in kind when I have time.

    Hey, I found you. I was just curious if you wanted to find out what Stuart said about you in the RH133 class?

    Hi Herlo.

    Well, here’s an additional story about the origin of the name: Herlo. Long time ago, in Denmark, a common name was “Herluf”, some places in the province in might still be used. However, when my great-grandfather was baptised an error was made, and Herluf became Herlo. Later his sons, including my grandfather inherited the name, who passed it on etc..
    Here I came as Herlo number 11, and afterwards many more have come (latest my newly wedded wife, who is probably Herlo number 30 or so.)… and then there is you, number 31? to carry the almost completely fictional name;
    Carry it with pride ;-)
