I just realized by looking at my details that I have been a regular member of LQ for a year this month. That also happens to coincide with my adoption of linux (Mandriva then, Slackware today). LQ just kept on coming up in google searches and answered so many questions I had to register to cut down on the ads. Happy myLQ Day to you all and thanks Jeremy!
