Hi ....just thought I would take the time to introduce myself as I am new to this group. I am 48 and have been working in a linux environment for about 3 years now. Ok I mean playing in a Linux environment. I started with Suse and switched to Ubuntu about a year or so ago. So I guess you could say I am still exploring. I will soon be setting up a server here and I plan on using Ubuntu just for the sake of getting the experience. My backgorund is Electrical Engineering and Embedded Programing / Systems Development with regards to Industrial Machinery and Automation. Mostlyt programming in assembly languages and C. I was doing it for 20 years or so. In 2005, I got placed on disability due to a hip condition and in 2008 decided to go back to school to change my specialty to biomedical equipment development. I am concentrating on Computer Science this time. It is less pyhsically demanding as the equipment parts are more lightweight and there is less climbing involved. So just saying hi.
