About Me

I am an Electrical Engineer by profession and currently has a full-time job at [http://www.transco.ph TransCo]. Although my line of work is completely out-of-sync (for now) with my interest in computers, I managed to self-train myself in programming and has been doing some unofficial, in-house development work just to make my job easier...

Contributions

I am broadband-impaired (like most Filipinos living in the province), so my contribution to Ubuntu is mostly done "offline". I usually hang and help out at #ubuntu, #ubuntu-ph and the [http://www.ubuntuforums.org forums] whenever I'm online, otherwise I just drool with envy watching the logs [http://netz.smurf.noris.de/logs/freenode/2005 here] and [http://people.ubuntu.com/~fabbione/irclogs here].

Looking Forward

I feel that Ubuntu has given me a wonderful opportunity to learn about GNU/Linux, Open Source, and about the community that drives it. I want others to feel the same.
