Introducing myself


Hi,

I've been a Linux / FOSS user for the last eight or nine years, with a variety of distributions: SuSE, OpenSuSE, Kubuntu, Ubuntu, VectorLinux, Fedora, Mandrake (before it was Mandriva), Slackware. I've installed with Yellow Dog Linux on Apple G4s, and DeLi Linux on an ancient laptop.

By training, I'm a programmer, although I haven't coded in anger for a number of years now. I'm so old I started my computing career on a VAX 750, writing Vax BASIC, C, and even Macro (assembler) on VMS. Loved that o/s...

Did a lot of work with databases in the 90s, still like to keep my hand in with PostgreSQL, MySQL, Sqlite.

I prefer KDE to Gnome, I have some experience of XFCE; I have to admit that I nearly always go for the command line option - that's prejudice down to my age, I suppose.

I'm based in Dublin, Ireland.

Welcome aboard, and knock yourself out supporting people; we're
always in need of "fresh blood" (irrespective of your physical/
biological age).

Glad to see you list Postgres before the others ;}



Cheers,
Tink

Indeed. PostgreSQL definitely has it's warts, but I'd deal with them anyday over MSSQL or MySQL.

I haven't messed with Oracle or DB2 much, so I won't comment there =)

And to the OP: Welcome to LQ!

Edit - Just noticed the date...blarg. No posts since 2008, earthwire?
