Welcome to LinuxNut.org.uk

My name is Bryce and this is my own personal ‘nix site, containing a collection of news, opinions, and tutorials relating to Linux, Unix and Open Source, along with anything else I feel like throwing in.

A bit about about myself. I live near Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland, and I’ve been using various versions of Unix and Linux since 1994. HP-UX was the first Unix I came across at university, when I was desperately seeking something more stable that Windows 3.1. A year later I found that I had access to the DEC, SGI and the SUN labs. From then on I practically lived in the DEC lab. Life was good.

Since leaving university I’ve always had at least one PC running Linux. Initially Slackware, then SUSE, Fedora, Debian and currently Ubuntu. I’ve looked at FreeBSD and Solaris, but as yet I haven’t really gotten into them. I keep threatening to buy myself a second hand Sun workstation, just to play with a different type of hardware.

One problem with living in the Highlands is that there is next to no Linux user group activity, and also no demand for people with Linux or Unix skills. I guess I’ll just have to keep this as a hobby for a few more years.

If you wish to contact me, then just take an educated guess at my email address, and you should get it right first time.
