Where can a guy get a cup of coffee?
I just want to say hello and introduce myself. My user name here is Pigloo, who is a baby penguin and the main character of a Franco-German bubblegum dance musical project. I don't really care much about the dance project, I just went to Wikipedia and searched for baby penguin as that is the best way to describe me.
I have been scratching at the surface of Linux since 1996 when I downloaded a copy of slackware, over a dial up connection. I have had red-hat, Mandrake and Debian on machines that I own or ones at work since then, but have never gotten past the very complex shell commands. I have several book on the subject, and have at least started several of them. I now have two machines set up at my desk at home. One with the obligatory Win 7 so I can work at home, and the second running OpenSuSE 11.2 (where this message is coming from), and I am noticing how Win7 seems to look a lot like x Windows in how it organizes itself???? funny, I thought Redmond Washington were above copying
I will be sticking my nose in once in a while and asking some pretty basic questions, but I hope to be writing shell scripts in no time (LOL). Please have patience.
A little background ... I am in the Canadian Military and currently employed at the CF communications and electronics school. I am a course supervisor for a network maintenance specialist course. We run several Windows Servers, and we are slowly implementing a few Linux machines and by the fall we need to be able to teach a basic course in Linux. I won't be doing the instruction, I get experts for that, but I do want to be able to converse intelligently with them and not look like a total idiot.
Anyway early to bed early to rise, thanks in advance for the advice.
