First of all, I hope it’s OK to dig deep into BV’s archive and bring back this introduction post.
I’m Rafael and I’m a Linux addict. I hope you guys can help me get deeper into it
I’ve been into GNU slash Linux since circa 2007. I began on Ubuntu, but since 2008 I’ve been a loyal Arch user.
In 2010, while I was still at university studying Linguistics, I got a job as an English teacher. My commute was not fun—sometimes an hour and a half in a bus, feeling all sweaty and miserable—so I got into listening podcasts to both practice my listening abilities and forget about the world around myself. I became infatuated with Linux Outlaws. I told fabsh and methoddan this before, but they saved me from going mad. Hm, I must admit there was some alcohol involved as well. Every evening, having just finished work, I’d go into the bakery in front of the school where I worked, get a couple (+1 or +2) Heinekens and hop on the homebound bus. There I was, on the back of a dirty bus, half-drunk and listening to two random dudes talk about Linux. Those were the days.
Last year, I had the pleasure of finding out about Bad Voltage and getting to know the hosts a little better. I kept meaning to post here, but I kept forgetting to do it. Sorry, guys.
Tonight, I loaded my favorite ebook reader with Jono’s The Art of Community. I’ve just started a LUG in my hometown, so I need to get acquainted with the correct rituals and incantations in hopes that the community gods will help me.
That’s my story so far. Thanks for reading and I hope to make friends and learn new stuff here. Here’s a gif for getting to the end of my post:
