Account statistics

Hi, I am Rehman, on the internet and the real world. I was born in Manama and lived there for much of my early childhood. Colombo is where I currently live and plan on staying for the foreseeable future. I am agnostic and love to travel. I currently work for HSBC while studying CIMA. As a personal interest, I do research on the renewable energy potential of Sri Lanka, and identify potential development areas. I use my legal name on the WMF projects primarily for the ease of content attribution; I go by the name of Roy much more commonly.

Here at Wikipedia, I mainly work on maintenance, deletions (WP:FFD, WP:TFD, WP:RFD), creating and fixing infoboxes/other templates, contributing to articles on topics relating but not limited to geography, energy, oceanography, and other areas involving nature and industrialization. I am an active volunteer at the Wikimedia Commons, where I am an Administrator. I've joined Wikipedia in Q2'08, a few edits before writing my first article in May 2008. Files I upload to Wikimedia can be found here. I don't maintain userpages on other wikis.

I'm a tech addict, and love building high-performance desktop computers. My work platform is Firefox on Windows 7 x64. Some of my computer specifications may be found in the infoboxes below. When contributing, I work on displays ranging between 1920×1080 and 1366×768, and hence I pay extra attention in structuring articles in a way that makes it look best on most screen resolutions.

I was less active nearly the whole year of 2013 due to work and other real-life priorities, but rest assured, I'm back! :) As a personal off-site Wikimedia goal, I hope to work with the local telecommunications companies of Sri Lanka to help make internet/mobile access to free, something like Wikipedia Zero. A distant goal; but something I hope to succeed in one day. Please do email me if you're interested in lending a hand!

Colin Hannah

Sir Colin Hannah (1914–1978) was a senior commander in the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and a Governor of Queensland. Born in Western Australia, he joined the RAAF in 1935 and served as a pilot in Nos. 22 and 23 Squadrons. During World War II, he was the RAAF's Deputy Director of Armament, saw action in the South West Pacific as commander of No. 6 Squadron and, later, No. 71 Wing, and ended the war in charge of Western Area Command in Perth. During the Malayan Emergency, he was senior air staff officer at RAF Far East Air Force Headquarters, Singapore. His other post-war appointments included Deputy Chief of the Air Staff, Air Officer Commanding (AOC) Operational Command, and AOC Support Command. In January 1970, he was promoted to air marshal and became Chief of the Air Staff (CAS), the RAAF's senior position. Knighted in 1971, Hannah concluded his three-year appointment as CAS a year early, in March 1972, to become Governor of Queensland, where he attracted controversy by making comments critical of the Federal government. The British government refused to agree to his term being extended. He retired in March 1977, and died the following year. (Full article...)

I'm sorry your RfA failed, but well done for taking the criticism offered on the chin. I genuinely hope to see you back at RfA in a few months when you think those issues have been resolved. I have a failed RfA of my own, so I cna tell you it's not necessarily a bad thing! All the best, HJ Mitchell | fancy a chat? 15:35, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
