I am a Junior at the University of Wisconsin - Superior studying Computer Science. I found Open Source in High School when my Intro to Programming teacher brought in a few Ubuntu CD's. It opened my eyes to free/open source software. Through some discussions at a company I worked for, a friend of mine convinced me to jump into FreeBSD from Windows XP. That day, I was compiling my own kernel (I needed SMP) and reading wiki's like we were running out of bandwidth. After falling in love with the Ports system, I decided to try something new and experiment with a few other distros over the years, but I find my loyalty with Ubuntu and always return.

== IRC Op ==

I would like to extend my contributions to Ubuntu into the IRC Operator status. I feel like I am a good candidate because of exceeding patience, willingness to help, and a desire to grow the Ubuntu community as a whole. I would be pleased to be allowed the opportunity to assist. I have limited experience as an operator, excluding in the LoCo channel #ubuntu-us-wi, but I learn quite quickly. I've been active in the #ubuntu-offtopic community for more than a year, and other #ubuntu* channels as well, and am familiar with the Code of Conduct as well as the Ubuntu Leadership Code of Conduct.
 *Availability: Generally 22:00GMT to around 05:00 GMT

=== Testimonials ===

 * Anthony is level-headed, good at support, and has demonstrated his commitment to the IRC community and adherence to the Code of Conduct in the time we've shared in #ubuntu-offtopic and other Ubuntu channels. I believe his addition to the #ubuntu-offtopic and #ubuntu operator lists would benefit these channels, and thus support his application to both. -- [[LaunchpadHome:robertwall]] <<DateTime(2010-04-08T00:31:21-0800)>>
