Plain Text, Archiving, and Presentation Fidelity

Posted 04-01-2010 at 07:31 PM by penguiniator

My introduction to computers was as a hobby. My first computer had Microsoft Works for MS-DOS version 1.05 installed on it. Among other things, I decided to use the computer to keep a journal. It was perfect. I could do all my writing on the computer and even edit the text without wasting paper.

A Bit About Me

Posted 11-30-2008 at 09:52 PM by penguiniator

I dove head first into Linux without a life jacket in 2001. I was a transit bus driver at the time and left myself no option for returning to Windows, so I had to succeed, or fail trying. I started with SuSE 7.1 Professional and moved through Red Hat 7.1/7.2 and Mandrake 8, 9, and 10 before returning to SuSE 9.something. I ditched SuSE when they did their deal with Microsoft and moved to Slackware 10. Later I switched to Kubuntu. Now I use Ubuntu 8.10.

I never had formal computer...
