View Full Version : Good morning!

November 2nd, 2005, 03:29 PM
I'm very glad to see a special forum set up for Ubuntu Women. I, too, am part of a minority group here: I'm a 54-year-old male Ubuntu Linux user. As you may have noticed, there are a good many forum users who are very young. "Not that there's anything wrong with that," as Seinfeld would say, but sometimes I find it hard to keep up and I definitely don't always get their sense of humour. To top it off, I'm also a non-techie (I'm a writer, as you can tell from my screen name). But, for the most part, they're a good and helpful group.

I'll watch your forum and, if there's any time that I feel I have something to offer that would be of value to your group, I'll certainly chip in. I'm a noob to both Ubuntu and to Linux and I think I have a well-grounded perspective when it comes to dealing with and solving problems.

Anyway, welcome!

Hmm. We need a non-techie Ubuntu group. And a "Wiser" Ubuntu group. Not necessarily "Older", but "Wiser" group, get it? and a writer's group! Oh, when will the groups end!

One day, I hope there will be all sorts of groups in which Ubuntu users of all stripes can participate. I would lead them if I had the time. Unfortunately, there is only so much I can do. Maybe one day when you get more experience, you can start a Ubuntu group on yahoogroups or something. That wouldn't be too hard.

Thanks for chipping in whenever possible. Your thoughts are appreciated!
