Trained in C, familiar with C++ and Java, spent the last 10 or so years mostly in scripting (perl, shell, etc) with a little php/ajax/js on the side. I've been running linux on just about all my systems for over 5 years, and at least partially using it since '95, mostly with Debian and now Ubuntu. Lately I'm getting back into a project using C, maybe Lua, front end with php/ajax/js, and who knows what else.

Outside of the techie stuff, I enjoy photography as a hobby and do a lot of home repair both on my own home and with the local Habitat chapter. For fun, I strap the bare necessities onto my back and enjoy a weekend of backpacking.

comment How do I use a wireless shutter release?
@ltai, All this time I thought the IR receiver was in the camera (through the lens). Had to give it a shot with the lens cap on to prove that spot on the front was an IR receiver. Learn something new every day. Thanks!

Dang it, now you're making me want to get a new camera! :) I've edited my answer, but if people still don't find it useful, I'll be happy to delete it.
