I am a husband, father, and grandfather. I live in New Mexico in the United States. I enjoy going to church and spending time with my family. I first used a computer in 1987 when I was in college in Texas. My first computer was a Tandy it did not even have a hard drive just a floppy drive, and it run off of dos.
I first started trying to use linux around the year 2002, but I did not have much luck at first then I came across SuSe and was able to install and use it. A few years later I found Ubuntu and I have never used any other distribution again, except for testing purposes in virtualbox. The help I received in the forum's and the ease of use of ubuntu is what kept me using Ubuntu.
I began using the ubuntu forum's for getting help with issues like wireless and boot problems. I loved the community so much that when my schedule changed and allowed me the time to help others I started learning as much as I could so I would be able to help new people resolve issues so they will be able to keep using ubuntu. I am currently helping family and friends install and use ubuntu on there computers.
I started out contributing in Absolute Beginners and General Section of the forum but I have found a home with some great people in wireless and networking so that is where I do most of my contributing now on a daily basis.
I also am testing Oneiric but to be honest my computer does not run it very well at the moment.
Before starting in the networking section I created a blog for setting up the cube and effects in Natty with pictures for every step, I still check on the blog daily.
