Dag Rune Sneeggen

Name: Dag Rune Sneeggen
Situated: Trondheim, Norway (MapQuest Trondheim)
Date of birth: 6th of April 1983

Been playing with computers ever since we got a Compaq Presario back in 1994. Been playing with Linux/*BSD since around 1999/1998. Now have my own pseudo-successful hosting company, as well as being involved in a number of development projects and communities.
I'm involved in Linux mainly because it's terribly fun, but also because I honestly believe its the best implementation of an Operative System to this day. (An honourable mention goes to the now dead BeOS!)

Do check out my Curriculum Vitæ those who feels its intersting! Wink ;)
