Welcome to nhaines.com

I’m a long time technology enthusiast, and I love contributing to Free Software, teaching computing skills, and performing freelance computer repair. However, I never seem to get time to work on my own website.

For the moment, you can read selected blog posts from 2014 onward.

There is also a page with the early work I’ve done for the Ubuntu California Local Community team.

Beginning Ubuntu for Windows and Mac Users is published by Apress and is available now from Amazon and for order from your local book retailer.

More information about my standalone published work is available on my Amazon Author Page.
