Hi, I’m James Hannah, a Linux systems administrator from Manchester, UK. I work for gloriously-geeky UK web host: Bytemark as a Linux sysadmin.

In the past, I’ve picked up a degree in Computer Science, and done a whole bunch of student radio, with Lancaster University’s student radio station, 87.7 Bailrigg FM

I tend to post a mix of technical posts, and occasionally more personal things. The technical posts come with neither warranty nor guarantee of success. Suspect tigers. If you'd rather pay someone to do this sort of stuff for you, please speak to my employer.
