About me

I am currently a Uni student undertaking a Bachelor of Engineering (Software Systems and Aerospace) at the University of Queensland. I have a strong interest in computers, especially software and web programming.

I have played around with Linux since 2006, with Ubuntu being my main choice. I initially tried Knoppix and Fedora, but after trying Ubuntu 5.10 and later Ubuntu 6.06, I settled on Ubuntu as my favourite Linux distro. Currently I have Ubuntu 11.10 installed on both of my computers, as well as a couple of virtual computers that are mainly used for web programming.

I taught myself HTML/CSS in 2003, and moved on to PHP a couple of years later. I created my own basic CMS in 2008, as a way to learn more in-depth PHP and MySQL. However, I have now decided to use Drupal for all my websites, as it is a lot easier and much more powerful.

I am a member of Ubuntu Australia Team, mainly helping out with the IRC channels and translations.
