    Hey guys!


    Hey everyone. I just thought I would introduce myself to the members willing to read this, and provide a little background about myself. I'm currently 17, hoping to study Computer Science and Engineering. When I was six, my father had red hat linux on an old celeron, and he let me mess around with it. As I grew older, I started using windows, and it wasn't until I was about 16 that I started to gain an interest in computers again. Initially it was hard for me to understand the command line - I got GUI ****ed by windows. I tested and jumped around a few distros, and I'm currently using Archbang (on my old laptop) until I get my new laptop, which I will install Arch onto. I also program a little Python, but I'm still beginning.

    That's about all I can think of right now. Cheers!

    Hi, Future28! Welcome to LinuxForums!

    Initially it was hard for me to understand the command line - I got GUI ****ed by windows.
    Yeah... it can be hard to break the old habits, but it sounds like you're already making some good headway, there.
    I tested and jumped around a few distros...
    I still do that, once in a while. Around here, we call that being a distro-slut.

    Take a look around, and enjoy!
    Jay

    Howdy and Welcome.

    I miss the days when something I tried was for the first time with wonderment.

    Good luck with your adventures.

    Thanks guys. I hope to be fairly active on here as soon as I'm home - currently on very dodgy internet while away.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Lucky! When I was six, my dad told me to go play with my Lincoln Logs.

    Thanks, I'm also digging the dp, Gumby is insane! I'll be making actual posts and getting more active once I'm home, my internet here is very poor so it's taking about 5 minutes per page load.

    What's that? I would google it but as I said, I have a lack of internet quality currently.


    I also forgot to mention, I run a LAMP server using Ubuntu server, and I have a wordpress on there, it was just a project I had going.

    Thanks again guys.

    Lincoln logs were a favorite of mine as a child. For the posters education, Lincoln logs were sticks resembling the notched logs used in building log cabins in Lincoln's day. Like lego's, a child could use his imagination and make buildings of different designs.

    Yeah, Masontx, I loved them, too. I did not know this little tidbit, they were designed by the son of world famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. That's what some wiki said anyway.
