Hello! I'm Brian Cottingham, also known on the Internets as spiffytech. I recently graduated from N.C. State University with a degree in Computer Science. I recently finished an RV trip around the country, which you can read about on my travel blog.

I'm a fan of open source stuff. I do hobby programming projects in Python, and have used Linux as my desktop OS since before Ubuntu was a gleam in Shuttleworth's eye. I even spent three years as the president/vice president of the NCSU Linux Users Group, where I still reside as chairman of the Alumni Committee, and Chief Subcaptain of Switzerland.


When I'm not programming, I'm travelling around North America by RV. Check out my travel blog to follow the adventure!
