I've been picking up hints, tips and information from a variety of sources over the years, but somehow have always been a taker and not a giver. I'm finally getting involved and trying to give something back to the community. Still learning far more than contributing though.

I'm a bit of a jack-of-all-trades in a small UK-based team within a US subsidiary of a Japanese company, doing work for a large UK telecoms provider. Production support, developer, part-time (a.k.a accidental) DBA in dev/test, analyst, consultant... whatever needs doing right now, generally. Mostly Oracle (since about 1995, versions 6 to 11g), Java, WebLogic, shell scripting, HTML, CSS, a bit of C when pushed, but whatever's needed today. Work is mostly on Oracle Linux, but dragged into Windows and networking issues fairly often, and a Mac user at home.
