About

My name is Andrew Alexander Barber, a young contributor from Scotland. I am currently studying Software Development at the Central College of Glasgow. I am an active Scout leader in the non-geek world, devoting a few hours per night on different Scout groups.

Usage

I use ubuntu on my server and also my iBook G4. The Apple iBook G4 is my daily machine as I don't spend large amount of times at home, meaning I need something portable. The book dual boots with Mac OSX. I have Ubuntu installed on home x86 machines however I never get to use these.

I started using Ubuntu very early on, however it never stuck untill fairly recently.

Translations

I am a member of the Ubuntu translation team, helping out primarily with the Scots translation. I am slowly learning Scottish Gaelic too, so may soon be able to contribute with that group also.

Support

IRC

I often use Internet Relay Chat to communicate with many members of the GNU/Linux and F(l)OSS community. I am an active helper in the #ubuntu channel, as well as many other channels stretching across the network. Other semi-large channels include #tuxhacker and #tapthru. TuxHacker is a community set up by myself and others to help GNU/Linux users in a friendly way. A lot of the other channels that I am part of, are channels that I have chan-op status and help maintain their community. I now moderate the official freenode channels; #freenode and #defocus

Fora/Forum Work

I currently only tend to use one fora, which is one that I also help moderate. The fora is called Nuxified, and is aimed at providing help to Free/Open source software. It is part of the Libervis Network and has thus made me more active in the network as a whole. I used to help out on LinuxForums but left due to my stance on many activities of the fora. Slowly but surely I am using more and more of ubuntu forums.

Launchpad

I often check on the answers section of the Lauchpad site.

Documentation

I have started working on community documentation for the Ubuntu Documentation team. Submitting articles on things I have worked on in the past and learning new things to document to help other members of the Ubuntu Community.

Testing

I have helped out with the laptop testing team, producing the following two articles;

Promotion

I have handed out many, many live and install disks during my years as a GNU/Linux enthusiast. Even when not an Ubuntu user in my past, I would still pass out the Ubuntu distro as I thought it was best for new users. I also have asked local computer shops to keep a pile and hand out if possible. Along with that, I semi-regularly email my member of parliament (currently John McFall) about my views on F(l)OSS and Open Source matters. Including GNU/Linux usage in Schools, and within the local Council. I hope to help out, and promote Ubuntu Linux (if the chance a rises) at any GNU/Linux event I attend this year.

Events

This year I should be attending;

LoCo

I am fairly active on the UKTeam mailing list, as well as the IRC channel. Much of the chat is genreal discussion but I help out with any problems too. Also designing the new look loco pages, still in progress though.

Membership

I officially became an Ubuntu Member on April 3rd 2007.
