The evasive action: About

About: The evasive action of Aqeel (Admiral) Akber is a collection of all the things I, Aqeel Akber, tends to do when I could be doing something else. It involves going on tangents in my studies, tinkering with things I really should not be and the odd open discussion worthy thought.
You will find log entries in the chapter titled Admiral’s Log.

At the moment I am doing System Administration along side my studies and work in Physics. I have no formal qualifications for this job so a lot log entries are my working/learning experiences with GNU/Linux.

Also, I am happy to say this website runs entirely GPL software!

About me: I am a Physics undergraduate at the Australian National University. Other than science my interests are in I.T, sustainability and social equality.

I am a nerdfighter and I have recently started blogging at The Evasive Action of Aqeel (Admiral) Akber and despite the alias, I am in fact a much larger Star Trek fan than Star Wars. I enjoy the honest, non-violent, opinions of other humans and the discussion of abstract and philosophical topics.
