About Me

My screen name is partially derived from the colour of my hair, Silver. I also like foxes, hence Silver Fox. Nothing else to say really about it, sorry that their is no big mystery Smile :)

Ubuntu was first introduced to me by a colleague and since then it has become my operating system of choice. From tentative steps I feel that I am now quite confident with it. I have managed to successfully introduce a few friends to the operating system and now serve as their immediate access to help.


Socially I try to stay fit and active. My fitness regime includes Running, Cycling, Swimming and Badminton. I am also a keen snooker and pool player. Playing Snooker and Pool for the local pub team is my way of relaxing whilst at the same time socializing with friends.

I am not really a film buff, but can appreciate good cinema. I do however like music, especially from the 60's era.


I'm an IT professional working in the United Kingdom. I have been working as web developer and database administrator in a very small development team. Our latest project is a web information system that has been written primerilly in php.

In recent months I have been making use of a WUBI install of Ubuntu on a work computer. This first hand experience has given me the unique perspective to critically evaluate its uses. I find it an ideal way of introducing Microsoft Windows users to the operating system. I eagerly wait for MUBI to be released (similar to WUBI except for Apple Macs)
