I have done many things over the years, including being an infantry officer, airplane, glider and helicopter pilot, peacekeeper, forest firefighter, lobbyist, association manager, writer, counsellor, web developer and IT technician.
Over the years I have had a lot of involvement with computers. I started working on an IBM mainframe in 1978. Some of the programming was still run on cards back then! Later in the 1980s I worked on a DEC mainframe and even had e-mail in 1988.
Operating systems used since 1998:
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Puppy Linux 5.2.8
Puppy Linux 5.3.3
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Lubuntu 16.04 LTS
I have also tested every version of Puppy Linux starting with Puppy 4.3.1 and have used it for hardware testing.
You won't find me on Facebook or Twitter, but you will find me on Diaspora, the disbursed social network that is run on free software, advertising-free and community developed and run.
This website is entirely coded in HTML5 and CSS3 by hand on the Lubuntu operating system, using the jEdit text editor. Writing HTML5 by hand is so easy, fun and gives so much control, that I wouldn't use anything else.
