    I'm New Here


    Just dropping in to say hello to everyone. I have used Linux desktops for a few months now; and I have decided to learn more. I thought this site was a good place to start.

    Hope to meet some of you soon,

    Excellent great place for good questions.

    Plus if you're a Jazz fan you get ten extra credits.

    If you mean Dixieland then oh yes, but if you mean the stuff that sounds like me trying to get a note out of a trumpet then I'll take my -10 please

    By the way, I had no idea you do that with a kazoo and a toilet roll!

    Only if the Dixieland is King Oliver with Louis Armstrong.

    Howdy and Welcome. Musical tastes are a matter for the "buds". Guess what. It is "Bud Thirty for Me".
    I refuse to let fear and fear of others rule my life. It puts my humanity at risk.

    Stories have it his handkerchief contained a powdery substance (that was legal back then). He was always smilin' and the father of modern Jazz improvisation.
