long-time listener, first-time caller


Hello ...

My online searches for answers to my various questions have repeatedly led me to LinuxQuestions.org, so I decided to register. Here is my self-introductory speech:

I've used computers for work and fun for years, but I am not a computer-professional. I wrote my first computer programs on punch cards and since then I've used everything from TRSDOS to MSDOS to every incarnation of Windows (but, I haven't spent a total of 23 minutes on any kind of Apple/Mac). About a year ago, I installed Ubuntu on an old Celeron box and since then I've been using that machine as my everyday home computer. A few days ago, I "upgraded" to Bodhi. This process has reminded me that I am still a Linux noob.

Why I need LinuxQuestions.org: I have found that no Linux question can be answered without that answer generating one or more new questions. Open the terminal. How do you open the terminal? Unmount the drive. What is mount? Give yourself permission. What is 644? Use dpkg. What do the switches mean? Read the man page. How do you close the man page? Configure CUPS. What is my username? You get the idea. I'm no longer looking for answers to any of those questions, but I do have many other questions. If you are a Linux Guru who is willing to peck out an answer to some noob's question, FSM bless you!

That was a funny post! The endless, circular learning curve; where to begin and now the day's over and now I have 3 more issues...

Cheers! Here's to always finding the best answers!
