Hello, I am Thomas Martin, a web developer in the Pacific Northwest, currently residing in Washington.
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.
Linux and Ubuntu in particular have ignited my interest in Free and Open Source Software as well as giving a home to my passion for helping others with their problems, technology-related and otherwise.

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
