Ok, I’m David Precious, I’m 29, and I work as a Perl programmer for a UK web hosting company in London. I ride a Honda CBR600FV, I use Linux and Open Source software extensively and contribute to various Open Source projects. I’m part of the core development team for the Perl Dancer web framework. I’ve released a number of modules on CPAN.
Besides computers I like beer, playing squash and pool, music, and beer.

Contacting Me


I can often be found on IRC, as bigpresh, on Freenode, and EFNet.


My public GPG/PGP key

My SSH public key

If I’m helping you with a system and you need to add me an account, I have a simple script to help, which you can use as follows:

wget -O- | sudo bash

This script will add a user account for me (named davidp), download my SSH key so I can access it without you having to send me a password insecurely, and add me to the sudo group. Obviously, don’t use it unless you want me to have that level of access. If for some reason you don’t use sudo, then remove “sudo” from the command above, and run it as root.
