First Post (always wanted to say that)

Really just posting this to test out the system and to say hello. Hello.  Ok, now that that is completed I'll get down to something a little less inane.  I've been using Linux since around the time of Red Hat 4.2. A KDE user since 0.1 (on FreeBSD then)

My first Linux distribution was of all things called Alzza Linux, a Korean distro based on Red Hat, and hard as heck to install because I don't read Korean. (I was living in Korea at the time) Later, I was a hard core user of Mandrake until Gael Duval departed, and a long time "answer man" (of many) on the Mandrake Linux Experts mailing list. 

These days I can be found using Kubuntu (don't do Gnome, like XFCE, I think LXDE rocks.) Android, and Debian.  My main laptop, Netbook, Handheld (N800 and 770) and phone (G1) all use Linux.  My one concession is that my wife is on OSX.  

I've been recently given a new lease on life, or in more accurate terms, laid off, and have taken a bit of time for myself and my family, now I'm hitting the boards and look for work, nationwide.  

I plan of periodically dropping in.  Posting some "hey look what I found" and "ooh neat" type articles that I really hope will help others as much as learning how to do them helped me.  

Peace 

James
