User Name


I decided to post a little introduction to myself here: Ask me who I was last March, and I would have had WinBloze 7 Beta on my main computer and would have been part of Micro$uck's test project for WinBloze 7 and would have been excited about it. However, that changed as soon as my network adapter changed and the new one worked with Linux. As soon as I tested the new adapter with Mint (I'd say about a year ago, in July 2009) I began to really value Linux for what it is.

However, I knew about Linux long before that. I started with gOS 2, which was my first distro. I had tried it back in about February 2008. I first learned about Linux back in mid-2007, from an article in PCMag that spanned several pages. I had quite a hard time back then, and Ubuntu Hardy was no different than gOS.

So then what took me so long from knowing about Linux to finally becoming an active user? My house was nothing but Wi-Fi. My mother set a secure wireless network up back then, and I couldn't connect to it because my adapter (Linksys WUSB54GSC) wasn't recognized by Linux. I had the patience to continue.

Then, in June 2008, my family got hit by the economic collapse here in the USA: The mortgage on my old house doubled and my family had to leave because of the rate increase. So, we were stuck in a hotel room until my family and I could end up in a new house. That Christmas, I wanted a netbook, and got my wish (the one I'm typing on, an Acer Aspire One AOA110-1545). It came with Linux preinstalled, and I liked it all around.

From then to June 2009, I still had WinBloze on my desktop, as Linux still didn't work with my wireless network adapter. Then, in June 2009 as I said, I got a new wireless network adapter, and in July decided to test it with Linux Mint 7. It worked, even from the Live CD! Now,

My Blog's Code Of Conduct

For your information, here are the rules for posting comments in my blog:

#0: I have the authority over my blog to edit or delete any post I see that may violate these rules, so be prepared.

#1: Any attacks ad hominem (Latin for 'to the person') will not be permitted. Your comments will be edited or deleted to remove such attacks.

#2: Any flame bait, or comments written solely for the purpose of starting flame wars, such as M$-praising, will not be permitted. Violations could mean (1) comments getting edited or deleted to remove the content and (2) the user in question being put on my ignore list.

$3: Profanity will not be permitted. This includes not just straight-out curse words, but also the use of characters such as '*', '#', or '$' used to replace letters in otherwise prohibited language. Consequences are (1) the post being edited to remove the content, (2) the user in question being temporarily put on my ignore list for as much as 30 days, and (3) the user in question being permanently banned from my blog via the ignore list.

#4: Any posting via comment of malware or malware source code will not be allowed on my blog. This includes viruses, spyware, adware, backdoors, Trojan horses, rootkits, keyloggers, malicious shell scripts, malicious shell commands, encryption cracks, or botnets. I have a strict zero-tolerance policy for such software being posted in comments. You will be placed on my ignore list immediately and permanently!

#5: Another zero-tolerance action is the posting of stolen information, such as drivers' license numbers, credit card numbers, social security numbers, passwords, and the like that aren't those of the user in question. Same consequences as for #4 apply here.

#6: Anything sexually explicit, such as pornography, sexual requests or favors, language of sexual nature, screenshots or screencasts with pornography in them, or the like will not be permitted. First and second offenses will mean your comments being edited or deleted. Third offenses could mean being temporarily put on my ignore list as a suspension. Fourth offenses could mean permanent placement on my ignore list.

#7: Do not mislead other users EVER. Misleading content will be edited or deleted, and further failing to comply will result in placement on my ignore list.

#8: Content of violent nature, such as images of weapons or dead bodies, is not permitted on my blog. Posts will be edited or deleted to remove such content, and failure to comply will result in placement on my ignore list.

#9: Any links for the sole purpose of self-promotion will not be tolerated, and this is also a zero-tolerance offense. Once again, see #4 for the consequences.

#10: STAY ON TOPIC. If I post a blog entry about a certain topic, do not comment about something else unless it has something to do with the topic at hand. Such comments that do not stay on topic will be branded spam and deleted.

#11: Advertisements in the form of comments will not be tolerated. Such comments will also be branded spam and deleted.

If you have anything more to add to my CoC, be sure to comment here. Also: If you don't understand something, be sure to put that in a comment to this CoC. I would greatly appreciate feedback.
