I guess I am the first one, so here it goes.
My name is Tom and attending college part-time. At the age of 32 I am the old guy in most of my classes. I wish I would have listened to my dad and stuck it out when I graduated high school.

I am in charge of computer operations at the place I work. It is a Windows shop and I am not allowed to install Linux on a PC here. That really sucks. Any way I am really bored here at work and usually am on LQ. If anyone in northeast OH has a job offering working with Unix or Linux let me know, I am intersted.

I found LQ doing a search and love it. It is the best Linux help forum in the world. I wish I knew as much as some of the people on here.

Also any geek girls out there I am free (hahahaha).

Hi I'm Candy a mother of three girls and a stay at home mom. I have NEVER used Linux before or even heard of it and need some fast education and help. So that's why I'm here. Hope to get to know some of you soon. Thanks

hello bower321 and welcome to LQ

BTW, this post was intended (I believe) to inform of the sub-forum creation and the idea was that each new (member) should create a new post in thet forum, rather than attach to this one. Anyway, you're welcome and we're looking forward to your Q's & A's

My name is Ken. I'm retired and live in San Diego. I started experimenting with Linux when Ubuntu sent me a set of live and install CD's. Like an idiot I immediately installed the OS and wound up screwing up my HD by misapplication of the partitioning tool. I quickly learned of the mysterious "hidden partitions." and other nasty surprises. After reformatting I obtained the Knoppix live CD, v. 4.0.2 and scanned this forum and others to learn the Linux ABC's.

I thank this forum particularly for turning me on to the Actiontec external serial modem which got me on the internet effortlessly. I recently installed PCLinuxOS 0.92 successfully and am simply amazed at what so many dedicated and brilliant people have accomplished for so little little financial reward. Computing is fun again.
