Hello! I know I’ve already had a few posts show up on the Planet already, but I wanted to at least acknowledge the fact that I am now, as opposed to having been previously not, a member of Fedora Planet!
I am an avid Fedora user – I have been using Fedora somewhat since FC5 and regularly since FC6. I run Fedora on my laptop (which I am using to compose this post), on my main PC at home, and also at my workstation at work. I won’t go into why I love Fedora (and free software in general) too much here, but I guess that fact is obvious given the circumstances under which you are reading this.
I’ve considered joining the Fedora Planet for a while as a decently high percentage of my blog posts are related to Fedora and Free Software in general, with the rest being related somehow to technology, society, community projects, and/or religion. Only my “Fedora” category is subscribed to on the Planet, but you’re all more than welcome to puruse my blog if any of these other topics interest you at all.
Incidentally, I will do my best to not spam my Fedora category with topics that would not be of general interest to those subscribed to a Fedora blog aggregator.
As for my own involvement with Fedora, I really am best categorized as a user and an advocate, more than anything else. I am hoping that in the near future my contributions can go beyond mere evangelization and bug reporting into actually bug fixing and contributing.
As for myself, what may interest most of you is the fact that I am a web developer. I work primarily in the classic LAMP stack, with the majority of my work comprising writing PHP & working with MySQL. I’m trying to broaden my horizens somewhat, including learning Python so I can start writing some useful GUI applications or even basic scripts that can be rolled out to a large number free software users. We’ll see how that develops.
Finally, I love comments and constructive discussions. My blog is ad-free, does not link to google-analytics, and I host it on my own dedicated server, so jumping to my site should be reasonably painless. I value a quick-loading site as much as the next guy. Thanks for reading, and here’s to the start a beautiful friendship!
P.S. If you see any non-English on my site, it’s likely to be Arabic. I have a terms page that has translations of some of the more common phrases I tend to use in my normal speech.
