Good Morning how are you, I'm dr jimbob
I'm interested in things.
I'm not a real dr,
But I am a real jim bob.

Have a PhD in Experimental High-Energy Physics, but left academia in mid-2010 to program professionally.

Mostly program/script in python, django, and jquery these days doing mostly web apps.

Also have experience programming in C, C++, java, haskell, php, and (bash) shell more in the past.

Linux as primary OS since 1999, ubuntu user since 2005 (Hoary).
