I'm a long time Linux (Ubuntu since Breezy) user who's decided it's time to contribute.
[https://launchpad.net/gumshoe/ Gumshoe] - An search engine built on Ferret and Rails. This project is has very little of my attention right now but it's always cooking in the background.
I recently purchased a new ["http://www.dell.com/content/products/features.aspx/latit_d830" Laptop] that I'll be using primarily for software development. I started a page for it over on the [LaptopTesting/DellLatitudeD830 Lapt Top Testing] are. Not everything is working 100% but it's definately usable. As i get more time to try improve things I'll record them here.
