Smile ahoy hoy


Okay, so I've been here for a little while but I thought I should say something anyway (that and I am bored at work today).

my name is Dave, I currently live in a subrub of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I'll be 22 in a week, and am a student. I just finished my BA, major in English and a minor in History. In September I will be moving up north to do graduate studies at another school in an interdisciplinary English and History program.

During the summertime I work at the local public library teaching Internet classes to people in the community.

I've been using Linux for over a year now but only recently have I been able to really take the time to learn in earnest. I've tried Red Hat, Mandrake, and College Linux, but am currently running Jamd, which I quite like. As soon as Jamd is set up just the way I like it I will ditch my old install of RH9 and use that partition for testing distros out (first on the list is slack!). I also hope to build a test box in the fall. I've been Windows free, completely, for a couple of days now.

Uhm, not much else to say. Linux is good.

Heh. The best way to live in Vancouver is to live in a suburb of Vancouver. I think I've only been downtown once this year - and I like it that way.

As for Slack: be wary of the fact that you may become a Slackware zealot like me (a reformed SuSE user). Welcome aboard and all that.
