Background

At an early age he gained access to an IBM compatible Apple computer, complete with two 5 1/4-inch floppy disk drives. Years later, and countless hours of computer repair, Turbo Pascal and Delphi programming, and website design, along with a stint as a high school teacher; Arthur moved to the United States to start his formal education in computing.

Interests

One of Arthur’s most enduring interests has been in the Free Software movement, and Open-Source development model. His journey began with Red Hat 7.0 when he needed to provide filtered internet access to a computer lab through a web proxy, and worked with his then classmate, Trevor Christian, to turn an unused desktop into a full gateway, router, and web filter powered by open source. Since then Arthur has participated in various open source communities to varying degrees.
