About Me

Hello from Melbourne, Florida! I am a former Marine, and belong to Florida's Ubuntu Local Community Team. I really like how the Ubuntu community has created this network of Local Communities! I was a Debian "Woody / SID" user prior to using Ubuntu when it was first released. It's kind of ironic looking back, at the time I had recently purchased an AMD-64 Shuttle that was top of the line at the time. At the time there were only a handful of distributions that supported 64-bit, This oddly named distro appeared near the top of my google search, "Ubuntu" version 4.10. I first downloaded the i386 live cd and ran it on my shuttle with great succes, and went on from there to download and install the AMD 64 version, and then on to install Unreal Tournament Tournament 200x which released a 64-bit version of the game shortly after. I have used other Distributions, but in my opinion the only thing that can come close to the stability of and Ubuntu system is Beyond Linux From Scratch.




I have spent the last year and a half running a linux special interest group that focuses on Ubuntu for a local Windows-based user group. I have held two install fests a week after both Hardy Heron and Intrepid Ibex released for the Brevard Users Group. They have given me honorary member status as well as certificates of appreciation for holding bi-monthly meetings, where I gave presentations that were 95% Related to Ubuntu.


I really like to play the Acoustic Guitar, when I am not busy downloading podcasts for my daily commutes to work. I also love to spend extra time with my Family!
