Short Biography

Divergent thinker passionate about hardware emulation, ham radio hobbyist.

Got my ham radio license when I was 13, playing a bit with electronic. Today you might see my call sign F4BUG over packet radio links. I didn't choose it! It got assigned by the French administration before I knew about computers :) In 1996 the radio club packet-radio downloaded what was my first Linux distribution. Since then I jumped into the Unix world, with interest in many hardware architectures. I spent half of my life in Europe and the other in South America where I worked as reverse engineer and in the space industry. I eventually found a job in Open Source, which makes me feel good :) I'm happy helping other on public mailing lists, which I believe are legacy for the next generations.
