Caius 'kaio' Chance

^ (left to right): Paul 'stickster' Frields, Tom 'spot' Callaway, Caius 'kaio' Chance.

My name is Caius Chance (kaio). I born in Hong Kong and moved to Brisbane, Australia for high education. I settled down after my graduation and worked as software engineer. My first computer was a 8086 PC with 5.25" floppy storage and monochrome CRT monitor my cousin passed to me after replacement of his PC. I am a computer lover (and gamer of course) since then.

I like doing digital paintings, learning foreign languages and playing basketball. I found DIY[1] so attractive when I had home improvements carried out by myself. I am busy for my SOHO[2] (Small Office/Home Office) business and my "Small Business Management" course at the moment.

You can find me via IRC, Google Talk, email. I will be available 0200 - 1400 (UTC) and reply your email within 24 hours in most cases.

Activities within Fedora

I installed Red Hat Linux 6.1 + CLE 0.9 [3] in 1999. Linux remained for testing or academic use until I started using Fedora as my main operating system since Fedora Core 5 released in 2006.

Fedora Ambassadors (and Fedora Chinese User Group)

I became the vice-chairman of Fedora Ambassadors Steering Committee for 2011 , Fedora Ambassador Mentor since 2010, Fedora Ambassador since 2009. I joined Fedora Chinese in 2006. I participated in establishment of the group, organization of IRC meetings, deployment of forum and migration to official mailing list. I aim to catalyze the popularity growth of Fedora by utilization of my skills.

Fedora Design

I had paid attention to the news from The Design Team since 2006. I like having fun with aesthetic creation. So, I promise will spend more time on art ASAP. :P

Fedora Internationalization (and Bug Zappers, Package Maintainers)

I became a developer for Fedora Internationalization since 2006 for work purpose. I participate in development of input method engines (SCIM [4], IBus [5]), fonts (Liberation Fonts, CJKUnifonts [6]) and translation management system (Flies [7]). I also maintained the packages of aforementioned projects and a few more.

Fedora Localization

I am language maintainer for Chinese (Traditional) in Fedora Localization since 2007. I have not translated many documents, though being the first contact of support for translators and those who are interested. Most of the document and software localization had been performed by people with professional skills. Hence, I mostly work on organisational information on wiki which breaks language barriers in front of new comers.
