I am currently studying IT at college, and hoping to go to university to study Computer Science. I am also learning how to package for Ubuntu, and hoping to become an Ubuntu Developer in the near future.
I have produced some updates for Ubuntu packages (including packages which were failing to build and bug fixes), and sometimes help out in the #ubuntu IRC channel.
I advocate Ubuntu and Free Software in general locally, including at college. I have given out over 200 Ubuntu CDs in total (spanning several releases).
I think I could be an excellent addition to the #ubunbu-offtopic channel staff because I often provide guidance and assistance as needed, as well as help keep the channel fun and interesting for all types of users.
- I tend to spend an inordinate amount of time in #ubuntu-offtopic, but am most often available between 20:00 and 02:00 GMT.
- I am also present in #ubuntu, #ubuntu+1, #ubuntu-motu and a few others at the same times, but I do not actively watch those channels as much.
funkyHat would be an excellent addition to the Op team in #ubuntu-offtopic. Keeping conversation lighthearted, he is a great help to the channel with or without Op status and I would be excited to see him as an operator. -- anthonyhook 2010-04-12 01:17:31
funkyHat would make an excellent op for #ubuntu-offtopic. He's got the sense of humor and easygoing personality necessary to deal with people like me. I wholeheartedly support his application. -- canthus13
I think funkyHat aka Matt would make a great OP. He is always helpful and keeps the conversation flowing in -offtopic. He is always helpful and knows the channel rules and the Ubuntu Irc guidelines very well. A BIG -- idleone
funkyHat has the intellect, the knowledge, and the physique to represent #ubuntu-offtopic in a proudful manner. -- serp
