A Brief Introduction (to me)

Currently, Paul works on Linux systems for the Adelaide company, Robway Crane Safety Systems. In past lives he has worked with large SQL databases (education), been a Unix/Linux System Administrator (defence), and developed network managment software (startup). Oh, yeah and he also studied Physics and Mathematics at the University of Adelaide.

He is also involved in LinuxSA (The South Australian Linux User Group, http://www.linuxsa.org.au) and has given presentations on topics of personal interest, ranging from distributed computing, embedded Linux and 'git'.

He enjoys having a local public library that he can walk to, although he has to bring his own software as they are yet to appriciate the benefits of Free ad Open Source.

Paul maintains a community news site and is in the habit of passing out Ubuntu and TheOpenCD CD's whenever he can.

He is also working on Linux 2.6.x support for Compulab's ARMCore-GX (system on a board). This embedded system uses the Intel's XScale PXA255 processor. Cross platform development is done on both Intel i686 and PowerPC (Mac Mini) platforms (thanks to Ubuntu!)
