Meet me


Hi there
Just wanted to say hello. My name's Aisha.
I used to use various flavours of UNIX years back, fairly new to Linux tho.
I'm quite shy but I cover it up by being a joker and a flirt so don't take me too seriously, really I'm a nerd trapped inside a girl ;-) lol

BTW Whats a Linux Monk? (Sorry am I being dim)
Please help me when you can as I promise to do in return
A xxx

Welcome. =) I think "Linux Monk" is probably something of a subtle reference to the Unix Koans:

Thanks, nice of you both to be sociable - I think I looked at your profile before you posted cogar - not sure why now tho, just looked again. I think you posted on someone else's thread.
Nice to find a friendly mod too. Pls look after me. I liked the mods on my car forum.
Fit geeks - wow lol - the world IS getting interesting ;-)
I posted in hardware but didn't get much response. ANy tips - did I post in the wrong place or is it just a bit boring?

Well, not all of us are stereotypes.

I agree that you posted your question regarding setting up your monitor in the correct place. Chances are that there are not a lot of people who have experience addressing your problem who also run your Linux distribution and have hardware that is similar to yours. As you are probably aware, one of the weaknesses in Linux is the diversity of distributions, which "dilutes" the community effort (in my opinion anyway), and contributes to uneven hardware support. Old and very new hardware support can be spotty.

lol - I wish I could conform to the geek stereotype better myself ;-) Sometimes it feels safer lol.
Thanks for letting me know about my post.
Last forum I posted to regularly was quite sociable (car forum) apart from a few gun-slingers who were looking for excuses to blast people. Whats it like here? Loads of users, which is cool. And yeah you're right about the diversity and dilution thing.

I'm sure we have our share of trouble makers here at LQ, but they seem to get put down fairly quickly

Yeah--I think we have a "standard mix" of forum junkies here. Still, for a forum with a large membership, the number of conflicts here is reasonably low. Besides, how nasty can someone be if they like Linux?
