Brief Biography

Simon Burke, is a avid cyclist and Linux hobbyist. Having turned down his uni offers to focus on other things (and regretting them later), being Microsoft *Groan* and Cisco Certified, he is currently a IT Technician for a High Availability Clustering Company.

Started using Linux with good old Dead Rat (aka Red Hat) version 5.1 before realizing how bad it was and moved to a mix of Slackware and Mandrake. Since then has switched over to AS400 and HPUX, to FreeBSD and then settled with Debian (with the mandatory trials of new interesting distros).

I am currently playing mainly with Zimbra, LinuxHA, and riding bikes down the side of large hills and/or mountains with varying degrees of success (I still owe West Sussex Hospital a pair of crutches).
