Is it 2007 already?

Thanks to Patrick for tagging me and making me realise I hadn't touched my blog in ages.

I've been so busy, travelling to present at the Tech day in Prague, meeting our colleagues over in Grenoble. Working on FMA, and now finally being pulled in to porting Solaris on Xen to Solaris 10.

Busy times along with getting on with having a dog, buying a new camera. Christmas and all....

Any way Patrick tagged me to come up with 5 things you didn't (or didn't need to) know about me.

1. Despite my accent, I was born and grew up in the North East of England. In a town called Darlington

I sometimes have a hankering to move back.

2. I went to school with England Rugby player Tony Underwood (who has recentley also appeared on programme about Easyjet)

3. I went to UCL and studied Applied Physics at which the only course I really enjoyed were Planetary Geology (Colouring in photos of Mars) and Operating System Design (hence what I do now)

4. I'm a firm believer in rational process as defined by Kepner Tragoe. I find it helpful in defining a problem or situation I find myself in and giving me a structure to progressing it. I enjoy facilitating people to use this and used it recentley to help establish priorities for the future of FMA.

5. Apparentley if I was a Super Hero I'd be Spiderman (like many people around here...)
