IT Consultant and manic advocate of Open Source in professional business solutions.
James Firth runs Dalton Firth Limited, and is currently working on a LAMP oriented knowledge management, workflow, project tracking and executive reporting tool for road maintenance schemes. The tool interfaces with various external data sources, and provides users with a consolidated intranet-based front end.
Outside of "work", James enjoys playing with toys such as High Availability Linux (clustering, shared storage, fault-tolerance etc), running and eating pies. In theory the last two pasttimes should cancel each other out.
