About Me

I am a Developer & Linux Systems Administrator (DevOps) from the UK.

My interests include programming, information security, operating systems & computer hardware.

My github currently has examples of C, Python, PHP, PowerShell, Javascript & Bash projects.

I run Archlinux on my desktop and netbook. (my dotfiles can be found on github)
The main servers I work on are based on Debian, Alpinelinux and freebsd.
I started using linux as my desktop OS in 1997.

gentoo archlinux alpine debian freebsd

I have spent the most time using Slackware, Gentoo and Archlinux. I got lazy at one point and used Ubuntu.
I use Alpinelinux a lot for development & docker (hardened pax+grsec kernel & musl libc)

I also have a number of projects based on Windows & Mac OS.
(including powershell scripts which can be deployed across domains using Group Policies)
