My name Microcai, I born in China and live in China. I am about to leave The University of Zhejiang Sci-Tech. I started programming long before I can have a computer. In the dark days of my life, I write programs on paper, and execute it in my minde. My first computer was a Lenove PC with 15" LCD and 256M RAM @2005.

In 2008, I god a new computer, I DIY[1] it myself. It as an AMD based computer with GForce 7300LE GPU, and 17" wide screen LCD. This computer stay with me untill now, with some update.

I like programming, learning new tech and telling other people that those teches are great. Thus, I keep on telling other people how Linux was great and why should they use it. I also writing Tech-guide to the members of mailing list.

You can find me via IRC, Google Talk, email. I will be available 0300 - 1500 (UTC) and reply your email within 24 hours in most cases.

Activities within Fedora

I installed Fedora 8 [2] in early 2008 when I DIYed my 2nd computer. Fedora remained for my major Desktop OS, until late 2009, I switched to Gentoo for better understanding & control of the Linux OS. After one year of exploring in Linux world , I begin to join Fedora community in 2009. After I switched to Gentoo, I still contribute to Fedora when ever possible.

Fedora Localization

I joined Chinese (Simplified) in Fedora Localization since 2009. I have translated some documents. But soon after I got familiar with Linux, I started programming and stopped translating documents. I write the ibus-handwrite for those who don't know how to input via keyborad but draw it by mouse. I write an cjytty patch, so the VT console can display localized character.
