This forum is not the lounge and offtopic talk should go to the nuxified lounge instead.

This is where you are encouraged to introduce yourself when you join these forums and haven't yet introduced yourself to the crowd.

You can tell us something about yourself, what do you do, where do you come from and how did you find out about Nuxified.org.

You can be as extensive about yourself in your introductory post or as brief as you wish.

Existing members are encouraged to greet the new users here. So this is where you make the first acquaintance with the rest of the community.

So, welcome to all newcomers. Smiling

Thank you
Daniel

Thanks.. OK, let this thread be for existing members to introduce themselves, but new members should just open new threads for themselves. Smiling

Anyway, I should introduce myself as well to those who don't know me so here it is.

My name is Danijel Orsolic and I am from Croatia, Europe. My main occupation is actually the websites I am maintaining or starting (infact a network) and the whole world of Free Software (mostly GNU/Linux related) and Free Culture. I have so far started Libervis.com, Nuxified.com and Nuxified.org.

Besides those things I also have interests in science fiction (star trek the most), electronic music (those are some constants) and also things that hit me on my way, but almost always tech or space (astronomy, exploration) related. I am the kind of guy who dreams of living in a 2 by 5 meters room on a space ship completely surrounded by tech gadgets and slim touchscreens dispalying stuff powered by software that fits my philosophical orientation and looks incredibly sharp (GNU/Linux you guessed) Laughing out loud

Anyway, I am using GNU/Linux as my primary OS for about a year plus 2 months, sometimes dual booting, sometimes not (right now and hopefully forever not). I've used it before, but only an old Mandrake 8.1 that I held there as an experiment. After I tried Mandrake 10 I was hooked. After that was Slackware, Arch, Ubuntu, but I also briefly tried gentoo, debian, SuSE 10. Now I'm using Ubuntu, but am still on the lookout for the perfect distro for me.

So that's about it I guess.

Thanks

I'm dylunio, from rainy North Wales, UK.

When I'm not involved in F/L/OSS I'm working towards my A level qualifications in Maths, Physics, Technology and Geography.
When involved in F/L/OSS I'm writing some crappy script, helping out with the Jedi/GNU or Kyfieithu projects, or trying to learn a computer language.

Music wise I like the old stuff, mainly from the '60's and '70's, such as T.Rex, Pink Floyd and the Beatles. I try and read when I have the time, science, science fiction, and modern classics mostly.

I run two Gentoo Boxen, and one dualboot Win/distro of the month.

Hi Jim! Why are you using

Hi Jim!

Why are you using separate hard drives rather than partitions on a single hard drive?

tbuitenh, maybe he does have partitions on them, but likes to have more than one hard drive or just needs that much of space.. Smiling

Yo

blumer here, checking in. I came over from GUILinux.com, or rather, from #guilinux, since I really didn't spend all that much time on the site/in the forums, and in all honesty, I probably won't be on nuxified.org much, either, but I'm in IRC pretty much all the time, so I'll see you all there!

I'm 26 and a software developer for Ruffdogs, Inc. in Fort Collins, CO. Been using Linux exclusively for ... gosh, six years now? Currently have Ubuntu on my my work desktop, my home desktop, and my laptop.

When I'm not on the computer, I'm usually at either practice or a show with the Clown Box, an improv comedy group based in Fort Collins. I've been doing improv for about 4 years now, and we're just starting to make our move to bigger and better theaters in Colorado as well as attending and performing at national improv festivals.

Well, hello, I'm MA_D. I came here via #guilinux on freenode. I thought I'd post some stuff here as I'm without a really active forum community these days anyway.

I'm a c/python programmer who's currently working on his bachelors in computers science. In my spare time I work on this: http://www.public.iastate.edu/~chris129/code/ejourn/

I'm James, currently living

I'm James, currently living in Barrie, Ontario.

I've been using computers for almost 20 years, and Linux for about 8 of them. I currently have three servers running Fedora Core 4, one server running Fedora Core 5, a Fedora Core 5 workstation, and a Win2k Pro workstation.

I own a small software consulting firm which has been keeping me pretty busy lately. In my spare time, I'm designing and implementing the 'room full of tech gadgets' that libervisco talked about previously in this thread, along with the very large data backend for it. As part of this system, I'm building a purely source-based, command line only Linux distribution which will be released separately whenever I think it's ready.

I dislike forums, so you won't see my post count very high around here, but I hang out in IRC when I can.

gtoman: Where at in N. Cal? I spent 4 years in Canby/Alturas area...

klhrevolutionist
klhrevolutionist

I am known as klhrevolutionist but my name is Kenneth H. I run a website that also supports the use of gnu/linux mostly PuppyLinux I mirror a lot of software for them as I enjoy being apart of the Puppy community. I do tend to try out other distro's such as blag & underground.

I came across Nuxified after reading an article at Lxer.com I joined the irc instantly and was greeted with open arms. Only two places where this has happened online and that is PuppyLinux & Nuxified. So I believe that this could be the beginning of another great online experience and relationship Smiling

I hope this is an introduction... Wanna know more bout the revolutionist join the
irc channel and ask away, I'll do my best !

Good morning, good evening, and Good night!

Hello! My name is Anders (Btw,Not Andres Smiling) and I come from cold Norway. I just put a z in the nick instead cause I'm talentless creating nicks lol. After 1,5 year of trying different distros withouth much luck, I finally found Ubuntu another half year ago, and have pretty much used it ever since. And, shame on me, I'm still a dual booter, but perhaps with time I get a chance to fix that....

It's about time to introduce myself too ;-)

Hi Anderz, welcome to our family.

Since I have never used this thread to introduce myself properly, although I'm already here for quite a while (not very active though, but sometimes sharing my thoughts on things), I want to take this chance to let you know a little about myself.

My name is Dennis, on the net I usually go by the name reptiler (although there's also exceptions since this nick isn't the oldest one I have, but the one I decided to stick with some time ago). I was born in 1979 in Duisburg, Germany. Since November 2004 I live in Hong Kong and will get married in a couple of days (in Las Vegas).
As far as I remember I got my first PC in 1992 or 1993 (don't remember exactly, but it was for Xmas, a 486 SX-25 with 4MB RAM, 120MB hard-drive and a graphics-card with 512KB of RAM) running on DOS 5.something and also coming with Windows 3.1. I hardly used Windows since I had no real use for it, so I played around in DOS. Tweaking the config.sys and autoexec.bat was one big thing I did since games at that time always needed some funky memory-configuration. After that I had Win95 for a long, long time, from the Beta until I switched to Win2K. I didn't like Win98 and also skipped WinME. Both didn't offer anything exciting I really needed or wanted so I kept using 95.
My first contact with Linux was in 1999 (my first serious contact, meaning really installing and using it) with Suse 6.2. I'm not running Suse anymore, now it's LFS, and between Suse and LFS I had Slackware and also an older LFS-version (but most of my Linux-time I spent with Slackware). And I'm still running a dual-boot with Win2K, and I don't really think it's a really bad thing. Windows for me is a gaming-system. I do all my work with Linux and when I want to play some games I switch to Windows.

I usually compile software by myself, I used to do that right from the beginning with Suse, so I'm pretty much used to it. That might be one reason why I chose Linux from Scratch to be the system I want to stick with and which also led to my current project, a shell-script based automation of the LFS-installation.
When I was younger I did quite some programming, mostly Turbo Pascal, some Assembler, Delphi and also C/C++. Nowadays I mostly write PHP-code or, for my project, shell-scripts. But when there's a problem compiling something I'm not afraid to look into the code and, if I can find the code with what's left of what I know about C, try to fix it.
The biggest thing in C I did during the last years was an virus-scanner based on LibClamAV, to hook into our mail-server. I didn't really what I had there so I thought I could give it try. ;-)

More than programming I focus on networking and security, especially IPTables.

Well, that's pretty much everything I guess.
