Hello all, I’m roxyrohit and I suppose I’m just a nerd who enjoys tinkering with things. It all started with learning HTML (who could have thought that a markup language could bury me so deep raspberry ) and I have continued from there learning everything that I can about computers. I suppose my love affair with open source started in 8th grade when I heard about Linux on The Screensavers an interesting little technology show on TechTV. Then about two years ago I decided to go for using Linux and first used Ubuntu 5.04, and thus my journey began. Now on my laptop I’m running a nice upgraded version of Ubuntu 7.04 and my desktop has Suse 10.2 on it (by the way, KDE is where it’s at smile ). I enjoy being able to try out cool new things, like KDE4 and rockbox on my iRiver H320. Linux has allowed me the freedom to understand computers better and to experiment and change things, I greatly enjoy the freedom that open source software has given me. I’ve never worked on Drupal but somehow magically stumbled upon it when I heard that the Summer of Code was getting going. So far it’s been really awesome working with Drupal people and I even managed to e-mail Dries without knowing that he was the project lead wink.

I’m currently wasting time studying abroad at the Ollscoil na héireann, Gaillimh (National University of Ireland, Galway) and enjoying learning about embedded systems and drinking (Guinness is beautiful smile ). Studying and living in a different country has been an interesting experience and it really couldn’t be traded for anything. Before that, I was going to the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology but I decided to transfer to the University of Minnesota. I decided in going to college that I was going to learn everything I could about computers so I decided to major in computer science and computer engineering.

I have a bunch of strange diverse interests. I enjoy watching anime, even though plenty of people think that it’s for kids, it’s really philosophical and interesting (Cowboy Bebop is awesome smile ). I also enjoy the martial arts, lately it has been Muay Thai boxing, I guess part of me enjoys pain. I also love video games and have been playing them since I was young. I started with games like Red Alert, Total Annihilation, Diablo and Team Fortress. I have since progressed to UT2K4 and Day of Defeat and would be happy to take you bastards on raspberry (I suppose I’m a first person shooter guru). I also enjoy going to restaurants at 2 in the morning and hanging out with my friends (most of whom are just as crazy as I am). Maybe more than anything I just enjoy sitting by a river a listening to the water flow by as I lose myself in the sounds around me.

I also enjoy a strange mix of music. Lately it has been Scandinavian death metal (Children of Bodom) mixed with video game music and underground rap.

My screen name comes from the awesome movie Citizen Kane. It’s unfortunately more common than I would like so I’ve had a number of other screen names, I suppose the one I use for gaming is “Death to the Infidels”.
