{{User:Augur_./box|About Me|{{NZ}}<br>My name is Robert Frittmann, but most people know me as ᏜᏠᎶᏠᏑ. I live in West Auckland, and I've been involved in the maker movement and the free/libre open source software community (as an end-user) for a number of years now. I currently have Lubuntu 14.04LTS installed on all my home computers, and I have an Android smartphone. I've been using Linux exclusively since about 2008. This will be my first LinuxConf, however.}}
