    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.

    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!

    Howdy and Welcome. Musical tastes are a matter for the "buds". Guess what. It is "Bud Thirty for Me".
