I love programming/coding/hacking. I started learning programming in 1989. It's actually too late if you think about it. Anyway I had to learn programming at that time because of my college's course. And you could imagine what they taught us at that time. It was LOGO! And then I started to pick up some other languages myself, like QuickBasic and Pascal.
I didn't actually become anything like a more "real" coder until I got into uni. I used to do a lot of coding myself, and as you get into uni, you get to know more people, and get to learn more stuff.
I was a windows person before uni, too. Glad that I'm now UNIX/Linux person, and so is the company I'm working for. So I'm happy :)
I love open source. Funny enough though the first time I really got involved in an open source project/software was not something related to Linux. It was litestep for windows. I've wrote a few litestep modules and also created a few themes. Check out the wallpapers section for theme screenshots.
I don't use windows these days. It does nothing I want. It's just not doing what I want. End of the story. All micro$oft stuff should be trashed. :P
I love games, just like everyone else. I love adventure games. I'm a 100% fans of the Monkey Island and Indiana Jones series.
I have a lot of computers. They all used to be setup and working in my old room. Now I've moved out and I'm sharing an apartment with my uni friend. I don't have enough spaces and power point for all of them anymore. Anyway, you can still have a look at the list in the my machines section. And of course, all my machines run Linux.
I named myself Pigeon almost at the same time when I started learning progrmaming. I named myself Pigeon just because I love pigeons. And there was a story too. See my pigeons for the long story.
I love music. I love the piano. I managed to buy myself a digital piano and it's in my room too. Wonderful. I can play the piano everyday now (yeah right).
I love Japanese stuffs, mostly music, food and anime/comics. I almost abandoned Hong Kong music, and I actually did abandon it totally a few years ago. I've learnt Japanese at uni for about a year, but now my Japanese has gone really crap. Lack of practice... :(
Make sure you check out the my facts page too.
I was coding on my ipaq with my ipaq stowaway keyboard, in a ktv (karaoke) in HK
