Currently a Development Team Leader for an eProcurement software firm in Manchester.

I'm an OpenSource advocate, and I'm working on various home based projects.

Personal philosophies:

"Trust, like spandex, is a privilege not a right" (combination of me and Matthew Lillard, I think)

"Trust, but verify" (Ronald Reagan)

I like the AppArmor idea, do you know of any online resources that will help me learn how to do it? And IPTables...
