Long time web veteran from the trenches with a long history of successful self-employment and business ownership. Had my first UNIX user account on a HP-UX system when I was 12, learned BASIC on a C64... later installed Redhat 5.2 on a 486 and built ridiculously fantastic CGI scripts in C and perl, slung a whole lot of PHP (wrote my own framework, natch) joined the J2EE cult briefly before getting rescued by Ruby on Rails. I'm a pragmatist that hearts FOSS and uses GNU/Linux for almost everything from tiny field data monitors, to HA clusters, to my desktop.
