Welcome me! Now!
Hey everyone, my name is David and after thinking about trying out Linux for a couple years, I finally got around to downloading and installing Ubuntu on my Dell desktop. I love it! But seeing as I can't get it connected to the net to update/download/install anything, I guess you'll be seeing me post a bit asking random questions. So...hey! How's it going?
