== About Tenach ==
I am a 21 year old web developer/computer enthusiast from the Pacific Northwest of the United States. I first started using Ubuntu when it was at version 7.04, on my laptop. Though this was not my first Linux OS, it has fast become my favorite. The community has helped me learn my way around Ubuntu (and Linux in general) and I have done my best to give back. I have seriously started working with Python and C++ since adopting Ubuntu.

* '''IRC'''
I've lived in #ubuntu and #ubuntuforums-beginners (now #ubuntu-beginners) ever since I realized that I could join the community in IRC (Ubuntu is the first reason I have adopted IRC). I am often idle in #ubuntu-beginners and help whenever I am able.

* '''Forums'''
I try to help out wherever possible in the forums, mostly with laptop issues. I am always aiming to find someone to help, and try to post something of value instead of repeating someone else.

* '''In the World'''
I often advocate for Ubuntu, spreading the word to family, friends, and those who's computers I work on. Ubuntu is always the option I provide as an alternative to buying a new, prohibitive OS license.
Linux was introduced to me long before I really knew what it meant, though I started using it myself in 2003. At that time I was running Red Hat on an old Pentium 233MHz tower as a server for a game. The first distribution I used for desktop purposes was Fedora, dual booting with Windows XP. I became a distro hopper and tried out Debian, Arch Linux, FreeBSD, Slackware, and Ubuntu, ultimately sticking with Ubuntu 7.04, but still dual booting. Since then, I've stuck with Ubuntu and as of mid-2009, stopped using non-free operating systems.

Tenach is a very committed hard working individual. He is always willing to spend his time to help others. I strongly support his application for Beginners Team membership. [[Bodsda]]

Sheesh. The mark of a good writer is "Look, I'm sorry this is 20 pages, I only had a day", not "Look, I'm so happy it's 20 pages". In the case of Tenach, I don't think we can hit that 20 page deadline. Wherever you are in the community, chances are Tenach is willing to get involved. A truly self-motivated and driven individual, and decidedly donkey-like in his unrepentant devotion to a project. I know that Tenach is one of the first people I go to when starting on a new venture, and he is a truly invaluable asset to the Beginners Team. I support his application without reserve, hesitation or condition. -- [[paultag]] 2010-06-03 19:48:00

Tenach Tenach Tenach...what can I say that will do him justice? He's awesome, self-motivated, driven, and just plain cool! His work with the BeginnersTeam has been awesome to say the least and his assistance with the BT Wiki FG has been invaluable. He is always willing to help those whom he can, and he's willing to learn from others and share what he knows as well. He's got my support without hesitation, without reserve, and without question. Please look upon his application favorably. -- [[zkriesse]] 2010-07-05 19:27:00
