== About Me... ==

I have been known by this screen name since early BBS days and have kept it through many years. I started using Unix back in 1988 in the Army and have been playing with Operating Systems ever since. I started helping people with their computers back in 1987. I started using Ubuntu in 2007 when I changed from beta testing Unix systems to Linux systems. I started using the Ubuntu Forums in March 2010.

== Contributions to Ubuntu... ==

My contributions to the Ubuntu Community have been primarily with work on the Ubuntu Forums where I have provided technical support and published a tutorial.

I provide community support in the Ubuntu Forums > The Ubuntu Forum Community > Main Support Categories > Installation & Upgrades. I provide support for resolving graphics problems through maintaining and helping people via this sticky: [[]]. I have been active in the testing of new releases since Ubuntu 9.04 alpha1. I am also active at Launchpad, especially where it concerns graphics issues with Ubuntu.

 * [[http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1743535 |[Sticky] Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot]]: A guide to diagnosing and correcting graphics problems under Ubuntu Natty Narwhal 11.04. Thats how it started, but evolved in resolving graphics issues for Linux and Unix.


My other main input on the Ubuntu Forums has been with technical and general assistance on Ubuntu problems. I am active primarily in areas of the Forums that deals with graphics issues, Grub, multi-boot and server issues but I can also be found in general support areas. I also enjoy testing the development server and desktop editions of Ubuntu.

=== Volunteer Work... ===

I have promoted Ubuntu in my local community's Linux User Group (OLYLUG). I also help local users and Non-Profit Computer Recyclers in their use of Linux as a medium to distribute computers to new users and groups.

== Plans... ==

I enjoy working on the Ubuntu Forums. I love to make things works and helping others. I am always open to further what I know and to share what I learn. I am very interested in the idea of Ubuntu Membership based on Forums work.

Ubuntu is a medium that is open, user friendly and easy to learn for people. It has helped me make computers accessible to people and to make people's older hardware "usable" again in a manner than it performs better than when it was new.
