Also known as Linux Attack and The Chris E. Site
This is the personal website of a person called Christopher Elsby. It was first set up circa 2002, and has changed name and address a few times since then. The present incarnation has been around since about 2008.
I am an experienced computer programmer living in London, in the United Kingdom. I started programming as a hobbyist with BASIC in the 1990s and then moved to a Windows environment using Microsoft Visual Basic, and later C++. Around the year 2002 I established this website as a means of distributing some of my projects, and in due course began experimenting with interactive content using Perl and later PHP. This led me to begin using the Linux operating system, first trying RedHat 8 and then quite rapidly switching to Gentoo. Since then I have been mainly interested in open source, cross-platform development, and have continued to gain experience in system administration as well as programming in a plethora of languages (though alas I now struggle to remember how to do anything in BASIC).
I also have interests in certain areas of mathematics, physics, psychology and philosophy. I enjoy various games including Chess, Bridge, Cluedo, Chip's Challenge, Nethack and BlackNova Traders. I also like magic shows, and know a few tricks myself.
In recent years I have decided to obtain more formal education and qualification in computing, and so took a BA course in computer science at Trinity College, Cambridge, graduating in 2012. While there I became involved with various college and university societies, taking up rowing with my college boat club and playing at the college and university chess and bridge clubs. I also became a Christian. I now worship at St Giles Cripplegate in London, and at Holy Trinity when visiting Cambridge.
