About Me

Names stlsaint on the Ubuntu forums and just about everywhere else. I enjoy working with computer's in general and linux makes it alot more enjoyable. I am pursuing a degree in Computer Science and 4 year of MCIS.

There's not really much more to me. Ive been working with computers for about 5 years now. I started out on 98 then xp/vista. I really enjoy helping out in the forums and on irc. I enjoy learning linux everyday even more. Linux never ceases to amaze me and thats just another check for Linux.

I wish i had more hobbies to list but outside of computers there isn't much more. I run two servers with ubuntu server edition and 1 server with promox and openvz. You can always find me in the forums or in irc. My motto is to break everything to learn it! Im always engaged in 'various projects' as i want to be well rounded in knowledge on different apps to help others.

Reading above I can see people referring to stlsaint's amazing technical support. I will not do that, instead I will highlight the more human aspects of his personality. He is extremely patient and seems to adopt peoples problems as his own. He shows remarkable skill in reassuring people and making them feel they have the most important technical dilemma in the world, a skill I wish I possessed. Stlsaint is also very friendly and a person that I am glad to have met in the community. Please support this stars application favorably. Silver Fox

phillw was delegated with the day to running of #lubuntu and #lubuntu-offtopic well over a year ago

  • phillw +votsriRfAF (founder) [modified 1 year, 13 weeks, 5 days, 18:36:31 ago]).

As a part of that it was left to my discretion to appoint OPs as and when I felt they were ready. as nhandler was my mentor for a while on UBT and instilled into me the role of freenode-catalyst and also the higher Code-of Conduct Higher Code of Conduct as it pertains to both forum dealings, IRC dealings etc. Each and everyone of the current OPs on lubuntu not only follow the letter of the rules, but also the spirit. They are our ambassadors, and I am privalidged to count them also as good friends. I have no hesitation in recommendeding stlsaint who was appointed as a lubuntu OP +votriA (OP) [modified 29 weeks, 6 days, 07:22:39 ago] for full core OP's adoption. phillw 7th Jan 2012
