Introducing myself


Hi Everyone,
I have been following this forum for many years already, but never took the time to introduce myself, as pointed out by our host.
I am retired after having been an RPG programmmer (quit laughing); a network admin, an HP Unix admin, and a long-time Oracle DBA for a poultry processor, a Virginia university, and a major credit card company.
My path through Linux has been scattered at best. I used Red Hat for several years until last year, when I finally couldn't make it work any longer on my system. Red Hat upgrades have always been extremely painful in my experience.
In parallel with Red Hat, I used Ubuntu and found it to be considerably simpler and straight forward, but maybe not quite as feature-filled as Red Hat. I am now on Ubuntu Hardy Heron and find that it fulfills my LAMP requirements.
BTW, I really like the Knoppix version on CD for a temporary Linux on PCs where I don't want to mess up my friends' Windows setups.
I've also used DSL on occasion.
I do elementary programming in HTML, PHP and Unix scripts.
I've set up a very basic website with mostly personal items on it, but make use of mysql, php, html, and Unix scripts.
I gave away one Ubuntu server with a webcam setup to a couple who wanted it for watching their nanny's interactions with their small child.
LinuxQuestions.org has been very helpful to me, and I appreciate the answers to many questions I never even thought to ask. I'm not really a nerd, so am not able to answer most of the questions posted, but will pay more attention and help where I can. I have a tendency to learn what I need to know to get the job done, and then let it go at that. I rarely become an expert in an area just for expertise' sake.
Well, that's me.
Stan
