Wow, bunch of new people joined the forum in the last day. Welcome to the community, new people! Feel free to introduce yourself!
Not sure if I am one…I lurked for a few weeks before talking to much… but thanks for the welcome.
Hey Jono, all,
I’m Andrew Hutchings, aka. LinuxJedi. I’ve been chatting on the #badvoltage Freenode IRC channel for a while now so thought I should pull my finger out and join here too.
I was a long-time LugRadio listener so naturally when I found Bad Voltage I jumped at the chance to listen
For those who don’t know me, I live in Norfolk UK which is probably around 90% farm land and pretty much one of the most low-tech parts of the UK (tech wasn’t the reason I chose to live here). I work for HP in an Open Source division called the Advanced Technology Group which is sort-of a cross between a think-tank and an R&D division for future Open Source technologies. Before that I have worked on Drizzle at Rackspace, MySQL at Sun/Oracle and a bunch of other things you probably never heard of
Anyway, looking forward to hopefully contributing something (I can’t guarantee it will be useful) here too!
Thanks for the welcome! I’m relatively new to the open source/open community scene and have been looking for a way to get involved with some interesting communities and meet some interesting people, so naturally, Bad Voltage seems like the perfect place to start as everyone seems very welcoming - as well as the show being totally kick ass!
I’m 22 and from Somerset in the UK. I currently work as an IT Support Technician in education and use my role in a largely proprietary environment to try and lead people towards Open Source solutions. I’d love to work with Linux as I find I’m starting to develop a real passion for Linux and the whole ecosystem surrounding it.
I look forward to getting to know you all better. Bad Voltage team - keep up the awesome work you’re doing!
Where abouts in Norfolk? I lived in Suffolk for quite a few years.
A small town called Watton.
Cool, I lived in Framingham
Hello Bad Voltage Community,
@jonobacon started this thread before I joined the community, but I guess I should also introduce myself. I started listening to podcast in general a few months ago, and Bad Voltage was one of my first subscriptions.
I’m not Mr. Pink. I’m 31, from Venezuela, currently living in Canada. A Linux enthusiast, who uses computers the same way @bryanlunduke uses his blender.
Keep the awesome work. Be excellent!
You don’t half look like Mr Pink Or is that actually a picture of him?
Welcome to the show that never ends!
Mr. Pink = Steve Buscemi, from Reservoir Dogs. Certainly, I don’t look like him
The picture is something I found on the web, with a few touches in GIMP to turn it blue, and blend it better with Arch Linux forums (also my avatar there).
Thanks for the welcome!
Great to have you here!
