for what seems an eternity i've been running linux as my daily driver and evangilising to anyone that would listen. however working as a carpenter and having a young family didn't leave much energy, let alone time to contribute. but over the course of the last year slowly my contributions have been increasing. as we age our bodies aren't capable of the physical things that you used to be easy and this combined with some other events have allowed me to able fulfil a long held ambition and contribute in a meaningful way to KDE and neon. anyway enough self-reflection from this antopidean.
