Alan "Arcterex" Bailward

I've been using linux since 1994, and as a full time desktop / server / development environment since 1998 (coincidently around the time that I gradded with a CIS degree at UCFV and was no longer required to hand in assignments in Word or other Microsoft formats.

Currently I am working as a contract programmer for my company, Arcterex Consulting, specializing in doing new and interesting things with web-connected databases in Perl.
