Hello all,

I am a new member here as of April 22, 2012.

I have begun to contribute to the wiki and look forward to testing and documenting my results.

My experience is as follows:
I've been a computer and electronics nut since grade school over some 35 years ago where I built my first Heathkit (digital alarm clock) and began programming computers.

I have studied and practiced with various computer architectures, operating systems, and languages over the years and have been an avid Linux fan since somewhere around 1999 where I started my journey with redhat, suse, xandros, and PClinux.

I have toyed with various distros including some BSD UNIX variants and now primarily use Ubuntu desktop & server editions on most of my machines sparsed in with a few other Linux flavors on occasion like: Kubuntu, Xbuntu, Ubuntu Studio, CentOS, DSL, eLive, Mint, Puppy, Knoppix, gNewSense, and Sugar on a stick to name a few.

I dabble with web design and hosting and have worked as a tech support engineer for HP/Compaq through a contracted independent company, owned and operated a computer repair & retail business, worked as A/V installer, Satellite systems installer, Crestron programmer, technician for Liberty Coach*, ASE certified Auto Technician, and lastly a Trucker off & on where I was also an owner/operator for a couple of years.

You might say I am well rounded.

I am currently self employed in a motor vehicle diagnostics business.

Well, I'm going to end it here and probably add some more later.

Blessings to you and thanks for taking the time to visit.
