Hello Planet Ubuntu Users and Ubuntu Universe

One of my new (financial) year resolutions was to increase the readership of my blog. As part of this plan I have been trying to get my blog syndicated on relevant planets. The latest on my list has been Planet Ubuntu Users and the associated Ubuntu Universe. About 24 hours ago my blog was added to both aggregators. Thanks Tiago!

I run Ubuntu on my Dell D830 laptop (my primary machine). I run various flavours and versions of Ubuntu on desktops, servers and VMs both for my business and clients.

In 2009 I converted the local community run internet cafe to Ubuntu. When they were running XP there were problems almost weekly, since the switch, the only real issue they have had was a failed automatic update for firefox last week.

As for off the clock Linux time, my kids associate tux with computers, while my partner is more than happy running LTS releases on her laptop. The only desktop OS my mother in law has used is Ubuntu Linux.

I have been active in the Australian Ubuntu LoCo for quite a few years.

My Ubuntu related posts are generally technical howtos. Most of the stuff is system administration related with a few Ubuntu home brew packaging and webapp development tips.

The non tagged feed of this blog contains a good mix of geeky stuff about whatever we are working on at DHC, rants about annoying things and the occasional thing from real life. I hope there is something there that you find useful. Happy reading.
