um-i'm a little late...
I didn't see this forum, so i'll give a little description of myself.
I am an MK (missionary kid) that lived in Sierra Leone, West Africa for 3 yrs, and in Ghana for 5 yrs. I have a good friend who introduced me to linux (FC5) and i didnt use it a whole lot. But am now fully addicted. ;-)
My aim is to become a internet security technician and I am very far from my goal. I have (obviously) made quite a few posts, but I am impressed by the quick answers, good attitude and the helpfulness of the Moderators. Hopefully I become more affluent in Linux due to this forum.
