Hello. Blog entry number 1

Posted 12-01-2008 at 08:21 AM by ctsiow

Hey all. just thought I should put a blog here to talk about me and my Linux experiences. I was thinking about how long I have been using Linux and I think it must be around 7 years. Started with a Red Hat system at work, in the old days when I was employed instead of self-employed, then I set up a Mandrake system on an old box that was being slung out, the Red Hat system was an "official" machine so no playing with that one! We used Sun machines running Solaris as the main tools, workstations...

USB drive auto mounter script!

Posted 12-01-2008 at 12:35 AM by lumak (Lumak's Guide to Random Things)

A Bit About Me

Posted 11-30-2008 at 10:52 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.

Okay, I've just got through another flamewar, so I decided to write a some info about answering questions without wasting too much time in the process. The content is based on personal experience, my own point of view, and isn't supposed to be absolute truth or something. I also don't expect someone to agree with me.

Beware! Some people probably...
