Mugshot I'm a forty something information technology professional and Linux enthusiast. I live in Hampshire, England, with my wife and daughter. This is my website, it is powered by the brilliant Nikola static site generator.

I'm an Arch Linux Trusted User, a member of the MATE Desktop team, GSoC 2014 mentor for openSUSE and one of the Ubuntu MATE Remix developers.

My site reflects my interest in Open Source, Linux and technology. Essentially it is a collection of posts that serve as an Aide-mémoire for my own reference. If you should find anything of use here consider it a bonus and proof that free culture works.

Open Source Contributions

Most of my Linux and Open Source contributions take place in Arch Linux, Bitbucket, GitHub or Launchpad.

Where has the Wiki gone?

I used to host a little "wiki" to for jotting down notes. A lot of the content was out dated or inaccurate so I've removed the wiki pages from this site, sorry about that.

I have retained all wiki content and those pages that still have relevance will eventually be updated and re-posted as blog articles, try using the search above to see if you can find what you came here looking for. If you can't find what you were interested in then tweet me and I'll try to rustle up a blog post for you.
