Professionally, I'm a Site Reliability Engineer at Google. In previous jobs I was primarily a C++ software engineer working with embedded Linux devices. In my spare time (hah!), I like to develop video games.

comment Preferred apt repository
That's a bummer. I wanted to distribute a package that dropped the intranet repo info in sources.list.d. But it looks like I'll have to edit the sources.list in the post-install, yuck.

comment Where is the Flash in Chrome?
Some how flashplugin-installer was already installed on my system and flash still would not work. I unistalled then reinstalled it and now flash works fine in chrome.
