About this blog...

Nothing pretentious here. Just a few tips and tricks as and when I come up with them.

The material here is mostly going to relate to Linux on the one hand, and to SymbianOS S60 smartphones on the other. I'll obviously tag the entries accordingly in order to facilitate searches.

This will be a permanent work in progress. If you want to be informed of new posts then feel free to subscribe to the RSS feed or ask me to add you to the e-mail notification list.

As for my background and the reasons why I think I'm qualified to do this, I've been using computers for 30 years now, since even before Microsoft existed (yes, there were computers before Microsoft!). I've used many operating systems including multiple variants of Linux, several FreeBSD versions and Solaris. I've used and programmed for most versions of MS-DOS, Windows 3.x, 9x and NT, and I'm currently self-employed as a Unix systems administrator and web-based application developer, working primarily in PHP and MySQL on Unix-based systems. I am also a co-founder of a local Linux User Group in central France, where I used to live.

Aside from the world of Unix and Linux, I'm a fan of Nokia mobile phones and have used quite a few in my time. The ones I can remember are a heavily branded handset from the French operator SFR of which I don't even know the model number, a 3510i, 2650, 6280, N73, N95, N96, N97 and I own a 5800 XpressMusic right now. I also happen to be the all-time number 2 participant in the official Nokia Support Discussion forums.

I hope you find the information here useful!

Thanks in advance for reading :)
