Hi all,

I'm glad to be a new member of the JSF.  My name is Hal Rottenberg, and
I live near Atlanta, Georgia, USA.  I work for Hewlett-Packard as a
software consultant in our outsourcing division, specializing in Windows
system administration and security practices.  I'm a ssyadmin, not a
programmer, but I could do an ok job playing one on TV.  :)

My background is about 85% Windows, but I'm a fairly solid Linux user as
well.  In past lives I've been a QA Engineer, 1st, 2nd and 3rd level
Helpdesk / Tech Support, and "The Computer Guy" that many of us know in
small companies.

On the side my main Jabber thing is the Psi client
(http://psi.affinix.com).  I work closely with JSF members Justin
Karneges and Michail Pishchagin and the many other contributors to help
make it a great client.  My responsibilities on the project include
(making up these titles, we have nothing so formal in reality):

- Release Manager (jabberstudio, freshmet, SF)
- QA Lead
- Community Focus / Forum Admin
- Developer Annoyance (that might as well be an official title :)
- Co-webmaster

I have ideas for several other Jabber applications and JEPs.  I hope to
move these things forward as time goes on but there's nothing I can
really point to as an example at the moment, except to say that I've
helped on these Jabber-related projects in some fashion:

- Edgar (http://edgar.netflint.net)
- Jabber Icons portal (http://jisp.netflint.net)
- Flyspray (http://flyspray.rocks.cc)

Hewlett-Packard is a partner of Jabber Inc., however my opinions are my
own and do not necessarily represent my employer unless stated
otherwise.  My duties for HP have nothing  to do with Jabber (as of this
writing).  This is subject to change.

I look forward to working with each of you.
