The first of hopefully many to come this year we have Alexys "Ultrabug"
Jacob from Paris, France. Alexys is joining us to help with ha-cluster
stuff. I'll leave the cheap shots to you guys and let his words speak
My real name is Alexys, I'm 27 years old and live in Paris, France.
I developped interest in Linux (Mandrake) when I was young with my
grand-father who loved computers.
Today I'm IT director for an online advertising and marketing group with
more than 150 users and 100 servers. I always like to state that there's
60% of those servers running Gentoo Linux, and I'm fairly proud of it
since when I started in the company there was no server at all. I chose
Gentoo back in 2004 because I was frustrated by Fedora which was as much
as a black box as Windows can be and I needed/wanted to understand and
control totally my systems from the ground. After 6 years using Gentoo
as production servers and workstations (for the IT team only), I really
feel the need to help develop it and that's why I'm writing all this.
My other interests turn around photography I especially like to
photography the big towns for their architecture, the abandonned places
for their really special athmosphere and the landscapes for the
sensation of freedom.
Other than that, I love cats (got 2 of them) and I used to be a MMORPG
addict (eve online)
