Ben Hall's web space
Hello! I am a Systems Specialist in the School of Computing at Queen's University.
I look after the School's teaching facilities and support researchers here in the School. I also maintain much of the School's website and have been rather active in recruitment and marketing efforts in the School.
If you have questions about Linux, Mac OS, PC hardware, odd Unix-like hardware, web development, "the network", virtualization, or how anything around here works, feel free to ask. If I can't help you I'll try to point you in the right direction.
I'm not just about computers!
- We've gone on some cool trips
- I love music...
- ... and playing the upright bass
- I'm a part of the Williamsville neighbourhood
- and am part of the Kingston Jazz Society.
