My First Blog!

Posted 01-04-2007 at 03:19 PM by Oblivia

Now I can say I'm a blogger, too! I guess this will be the way I chronicle my journey from Total Linux Newbie (my Linux experience, to date? I saw some guy at work using it once) to..... Linux Geek? Dunno -- I think Competent User would make me happy enough.
So, where am I now? One of my New Years resolutions is to get smarter about this computer stuff. I inherited a cast-off PC from work that has a really old version of Windows on it -- nobody knows of any logins or passwords so I'm starting my self-education from the very beginning and installing a brand new OS. Or, at least, trying to: I got the Ubuntu ISO on a CD and am starting that process, but keep getting some weird <code>hda: timeout waiting for DMA</code> error. I'll keep checking the forums...
Anyway, I'm sure this is a totally lame first post but I'm sure I'll get better with practice! More as things progress...
