Hello, my name is Collin (Hellow), I am 13, and I live in Georgia. I run my own website at http://hellow.aislehost.info/. I try to contribute to the Ubuntu community as much as I can, and you can learn alot about me from my website. I run Ubuntu 8.04.1 on my computer, with Compiz-Fusion and Gnome. I am learning to script for shell, most likely the easiest way to script. I have only made one script so far, its a compile script to make it easier to compile/install a program, its here: http://hellow.aislehost.info/compile_script.sh. Just put in the directory for the program you want to compile and run it. I run 3 servers, my website, a Teeworlds game server, and a Netrek game server. Well, I guess that is a good enough "About Me" paragraph. == Hellow ==

== Participation in the Ubuntu Community ==

=== Summary ===

I try to generally help in the community: triaging bugs and answering questions on Launchpad, responding to posts and helping out on the forums, maintaining the wiki, among other things. I am also frequently on IRC providing support.

==== Ubuntu Forums Beginners Team ====

I am a active member of the Ubuntu Forums Beginners Team. The Beginners Team (or BT for short) is focused upon assisting new Ubuntu users transition from Windows/Mac. We generally patrol the "Absolute Beginners Talk" forum, assisting where we can. I am a member of the BT [[https://launchpad.net/~ubuntuforums-dev|Development Focus Group]] (or FG for short). The Development FG focuses, obviously, upon development. All that aside, I am mainly on IRC in our channel #ubuntuforums-beginners providing general assistance to anyone alike.

==== Georgia US LoCo ====

I am a rather new member of the Georgia US LoCo, been a member for a little over a month. The Georgia LoCo focuses upon increasing usage of Ubuntu and Linux in general in the peach state. We host install fests and release parties, among other face-to-face meetings.

==== Netrek COW ====

COW is the [[http://netrek.org|Netrek]] client for Linux (the maintained one). Full description of the game can be found at the site linked. Netrek Client COW has a Ubuntu package, too, netrek-client-cow. I work on the Launchpad side of things, plus some minor code contributions.
