Muhammad Heidir

Welcome to my launchpad! My name is Heidir in short. I am a hobbyist programmer and currently pursuing part time BSc in Information and Communication Technology at UniSIM, Singapore. I'm a Network Engineer for Netpoleon Solutions Pte. Ltd. Yes, I am a Singaporean.

My first programming language was BASIC on Windows 98. Since then I picked up a lot of other programming languages such as
C, C++, Visual Basic 5 and 6, PHP, Perl, Javascript, Java and bits and pieces of scripting. I learnt about Linux in 1999 but the experience was short lived because of my WinModem.

I managed to try out a few Distros starting from Calderra Linux, Red Hat Linux, ASPLinux, Fedora, Suse, Knoppix and finally settling on Ubuntu 8.04 in 2008. Since then, I've been using Ubuntu 9.04 fulltime apart from occasionally turning to my Windows 7 for gaming (believe me, that is all I did on it!).

I am satisfied with Ubuntu 9.04 enough that I do not have to create a personal distro yet. Maybe sometime in the future. I use Ubuntu mainly for watching videos, listening to music, a little bit of programming, finishing homework, researching and learning new stuff on Linux.

Though I have experience using Linux for a long time, I still consider my ability as Upper-Beginner.

In my line of work, I mainly deal with Blue Coat products such as ProxySG, PacketShaper and such. I do have the following certifications:
1. Blue Coat PacketShaper Professional
2. Blue Coat PacketShaper Administrator
3. Blue Coat ProxySG Professional
4. Blue Coat ProxySG Administrator
5. Blue Touch Support Partner

You can email me if you have problems with Ubuntu, I'll see what I can do to assist you.
