Bio
I built my first website at age 12, and have been doing so ever since. I quickly found that I enjoyed writing code by hand rather than using the drag-and-drop tools of the day -- I actually failed a module in Sixth Form because I wrote the code by hand rather than use Dreamweaver's layout tools (the lecturer said the code was "too sparse")

I started my Linux journey age 13 with Red Hat 9. I found a "Teach Yourself Red Hat" book on my dad's shelf and proceeded to tinker and unintentionally destroy his Windows partition. This wasn't all bad, as it meant that I got my own computer. Since then, I have chopped and changed with different distros, but have been a Fedora user since Fedora 14.

My current rig is a ThinkPad x61s, thinking about upgrading some time soon...
