Wanting to give back to the Linux community

Hi Everyone

I'm new to in the sense that I've just become a member
although I've garnered knowledge from the forums many times.

I've been using linux for two years and it all started with me simply
wanting the challenge of what I believed to be a difficult os to get to learn.
I was wrong. It wasn't difficult to learn, just different from everything I'd
been used to. Linux is my OS of choice now and only fall back to Windows when
I can't get a game working in Linux. I've been spoilt by linux. It's great to
have an OS that gives the user absolute control and power. 'Nuff said, you all know what
I'm talking about

Anyway, I've decided that it is time to give something back. I've learnt a great
deal in the past two years and want to contribute where I can.
Right now, that's limited to giving advice on forums, but hopefully that will
also be in the form of contributing to software projects in the future (not quite
there yet with the programming skill).
