new member intro - is this thing on?

aaah, my first post. i like the fact that its an intro post... takes some pressure off.

I've been ignoring my family for the past 2 months since i installed Redhat 9, FreeBSD, & SUSE . I'm not sure if they're still in the house, but i hear some bumps every now & then.

w/ regard to Linux, i'm pleased. not ecstatic yet, just pleased. i like the low-levelness for geeking out. i like the fact that you've got to learn a lot to do a little. i've read many of the posts where folks want to compare/contrast/rant against Windows. I'm not interested. this pursuit, like many of my hobbies, is a new opportunitly to learn. its a great asset having the folks in the forum, as well as some great sites and books.

i studied electrical engineering in school, but never computer science. i've learned more reading 'Understanding the Linux Kernel' about how OS' work. really good stuff.

i'm also reading a book that helps me get stuff done w/ Linux. I'm trying to build my Linux knowledge brick by brick. Its a bit painful now, but i've got time. i've installed some sources. I haven't done a build yet. i know there's a magic way to insert the source cds and just say 'rpm -i /mnt/cdrom/SRPMS/*.* to install all the packages at once. these are the kinds of little painful questions i'm chasing down, brick by brick.

I'm focusing primarily on my Redhat 9 nstallation. no real reason why compared to the other distros. ok, probably because its on a box that i like compared to the others. that's all.

i strive to be a key contributor & share what i've learned.

i'm a geek, living in Arizona, having fun learning astronomy, playing w/ my home theater & Linux.

drop me a line if you ever want to geek out. i think i hear my family going bump in the nite.

p.s. i'm totally open to free advice on getting up to speed on Linux quickly. any cool tips/tricks/sites/books/....bring 'em on.
