This is Tomaž Lovrec standing by. I am also known online under my alias 'slax0r'. If you are having trouble pronouncing my name, I have no problem with being called just simply Thomas. I am a professional software developer, and love solving all kinds of issues, be on the Web, or on your computer. If you have a problem and need a solution, hit me up with a message!

I have come to love programming and software development at a young age, while still in primary school, where I discovered my first programming language, Logo, and it went only uphil from there on. I have expanded my knowledge on this topic through education, self-experimenting, and work experience. There is also no denying my love for Linux and other Unix or Unix-based operating systems.
