Tombuntu is a blog for Ubuntu users. You’ll find how-tos, tutorials, tips, and reviews related to Ubuntu and other Linux distributions.

Many posts here are notes for myself in the future. Sometimes I rediscover them using when I’m searching the web.

About me

My name is Tom Dryer. I’m a student software engineer from Vancouver, Canada.

I’ve been using Linux since 2004, and Ubuntu since 2006. I started writing Tombuntu in March 2007 while I was in high school.

Some of my programming projects can be found on GitHub. My most popular project is hangups, the first third-party instant messaging client for Google Hangouts.
