A web developer that primarily works with Django, Tastypie and AngularJS.

I only use Linux Based OPerating Systems (a focus I've had since 2006). On servers I like to use ZFS, Postgres, Redis, uWsgi, Nginx, Ansible and (guilty habit) Minecraft Server Manager. On the desktop I'm fairly proficient with wine and winetricks which allows me to play pretty much all the triple A game titles. As far as development goes, I'm mainly a NoPSD kind of guy, so my interfaces are designed with Sublime Text 3, Sass, Compass Zurb Foundation. Sometimes I use RatchetJS. If I need photos or Vector Art I am quite capable with Gimp and Inkscape.

I'm greatly impressed with git-flow, github, gitlab, gitlab_ci, bitbucket and travis-ci.

A lot of my experience with highly available and horizontally scalable web applications comes from working with Amazon EC2, Postgresql, Django, Nginx and uWsgi.

If you feel like asking me a technical question I'd be happy to either give you my advice/opinon or if I'm not able to give you an answer I'll more than likely know someone who can.

comment How do I change the icon of a Epiphany web app?
Additionally, you'll want to open the respective folder and edit the app-icon.png inside with gimp (or create a new one with inkscape then export it as a png).

While this is actually the right way to do it (tm), SSH users should take note of : askubuntu.com/questions/21586/…

comment Alternative to Little-Snitch app-firewall?
@bodhi.zazen also, program author is working on a rewrite to address seperation of concerns, I suggested on his github repo that dbus be considered to help with the separation. At the moment without the GUI running, new rules can't be created, and there is no feedback about why packets are dropped. I mean, if you create rules to block firefox from going to some website, then in six months will you remember why said website isn't loading?

@bodhi.zazen Compile from source works on 13.04, instructions are in the README & INSTALL file. Does exactly what the OP wanted.

I remember way back that AppArmor had a gui, but they dropped it because it was not being maintained... which is a shame because it made dealing with AppArmor rules nice and easy.

-1: firestarter is just a network level firewall, it allows no control over per process rules.
