Hello From Denver!


I signed up for this forum a really long time ago and have mostly remained a "lurker" searching for answers to questions and the like. I just got a note that it had been a long time since I had signed on so I thought that it was time to sign on again and also to introduce myself.

I definitely do not consider myself to be a Linux expert at all but I am certainly not a newbie either. I installed my first version of Linux in about '91 or '92 and if I remember rightly it was kernel 0.7 or 0.8. I still remember vividly the thrill I got when I finally got X up and running on some version not to too much later than that one!

In the first year I contributed one time to the kernel code, a tiny, tiny little patch for a NIC card I had that was giving me fits. Since that time, I have also messed around with numerous different linux/unix distributions ranging from the likes of the FreeBSD based M0n0wall to Redhat/CentOS/SuSe distributions.

Currently the shop I run uses mostly CentOS, some SuSe and a smattering of Ubuntu. We run CentOS on Dell servers and Suse on an IBM Z9 mainframe under z/VM.

I am glad to be here---openly at last---and perhaps I can occasionally help out with some of the little bits and pieces I have picked up over the years.
