Since I just started my blog and added it to planet.d.o, I thought I should introduce myself a little. I’m in my mid 30s (ouch), working as a sys/net admin (Linux based, mostly Debian these days) in a nice little company. I first encountered Linux back in the 1990s, before the 1.0 kernel got released. Back then, I used Slackware (which, surprisingly, seems to still be around), later switching to Mandrake. About 5 years ago, I got introduced to Debian and immediately liked it for the ease and clearness of administrating it (apt+dpkg+dselect was so much better than rpm used to be at that time). For about two years now, I’m contributing to Debian, including some involvement in the earliest pre-implementation phases of the volatile repository (mainly advocating a few ideas that actually led to it’s implementation, BTW thanks to those who did the work in the end), some small packages I maintain and involvement in some small teams. Mainly the cyrus-imapd packaging team, but also (to a much smaller degree) in the cyrus-sasl, initscripts-ng and (extremely little, since noone bothered to add me to the alioth group for it yet) the php packaging teams.
Letting computers aside, my interests are quite diverse, they range from wheelchair-basketball to books (SciFi and Fantasy mainly) and RC helicopters, among others.
More interesting posts will probably follow later.
