Ziggy Crueltyfree Zeitgeister
I'm an Aspie geek, nerd and dork, interested in sustainability, resource based economy, software development, linguistics, and veganism.
I'm a software developer and IT generalist. Expert in SQL (esp. PostgreSQL and SQLServer), decent programmer (TSQL, plpgsql, ansi c, c++/c#, php, perl, delphi, java, smalltalk, clipper) and shell scripter (bash), fair sysadmin (linux, osx, windows, *bsd, dos, netware) and hardware/network architect/admin (blades, virtualisation, HA, redundancy, encryption, failover, security, firewalls, topology).
I use a mac notebook at home, windows desktop at work, and linux for my own servers and when possible for work servers too. I rather use free and open source software when I can and if it is not too uphill, and alternatively free/freemium software and services when available. I occasionally donate to open source projects.
I'd like to be more involved in the open source software world; I've developed some tools and extensions (MediaWiki, GNUCash, WordPress, and others), but I have no experience contributing my changes back to these projects. I'd be happy to participate in an inspiring or challenging OSS project!
