Past

A Brief Introduction (to me)

Paul is currently working as System Administrator for YourAmigo, an Adelaide company doing 'googly' stuff.

Up until very recently, Paul worked on embedded Linux systems for 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 (Portable Apps.) as they are yet to appriciate the benefits of Free and Open Source.

Paul maintains a community news site ([http://www.mawsonlakes.org MawsonLakes.Org ]) and is in the habit of passing out Ubuntu CD's whenever he can.
