In this order:
Rather keen geek climber of anything, ice, boulders, rock and mixed stuff. SWMC Member. Pushing my grade where safe
Currently toiling away at the Linux rockface in the IT industry.
Otherwise I enjoy good food, beer & wine, the outdoors and anything with wheels.
And in case the website URL doesn't give it away, my name is Matthew Moore. mattrm is a username I've used across a large number of websites over the years, it's quite obviously my name and initials, so I'm not hiding behind an odd username.

Anything Else We Should Know
Fix your personal webpage bit I shouldn't have to put 'http://' in if I put

Also, what's wrong with me putting a cartoon up of myself as an avatar? I'm an ugly bugger and I don't want to scare people.
