Developer, and system administrator for a few years now, I'm able to find interest in virtually any little configuration or piece of code I find.

As a system administrator, I like to consider myself a Linux enthusiast. I am quite familiar with Debian, and its main derivative: Ubuntu, which I use on my desktop computer. I also spent a lot of time studying Arch Linux, which I consider to be one of the most interesting Linux distributions available.

As a developer, I am a faithful C programmer, interested in UNIX programming, and studying the depths of the kernel on my spare time. I spent some time studying modules development for several applications such as PAM, nginx, Apache2, pureftp ... I also use C++ quite a lot, along with a little bit of Java from time to time. In web projects, HTML, CSS, PHP, SQL, and Javascript are the languages I use the most. I had a quick introduction to Node.JS and a slightly more significant experience with JSP, but never used these technologies in a serious project.

wget returns a 403 error code. You (or at least, your server) don't have the right to access this HTTP resource.

comment In what section do descriptions of C data-structures go?
Well, my answer still gives you some clues about it. To me, the most important thing is to document header files correctly, because they are the closest to your code. Add information about each member, and try to give details about your functions. Now, how you document the rest of your code with external tools is mostly up to you (manual pages, HTML doc, PDF doc, ...).
