Hello Planet Foresight!
First of all, thank you for inviting me to join the Planet crowd – I’m very flattered and honored to be part of the community.
Who am I? I’m a married father of 3 living just outside of Minneapolis, MN USA, and when the kids aren’t keeping me busy, trying to learn how to contribute and help out with various projects, including Banshee , GNOME and Foresight Linux . I’ve been using Linux for just over 8 years, a number of various distributions over that time, but was primarily a Red Hat Linux user, and then an Ubuntu user for the last couple of years before making the switch to Foresight about a month ago. This month marks the two year anniversary of using Linux as my only operating system on all my computers.
I am also an active believer and supporter of the Electronic Frontier Foundation .
Some of the current areas I’m targeting to help out with are documentation , including a Getting Started guide for users new to Foresight Linux; documenting the LiveCD release for both Foresight and GNOME; and helping out with marketing once that’s gets going. And who can forget submitting and triaging bugs !
This feed is my Linux RSS feed – if you want more ramblings on anything from copyright to sports to books and movies, feel free to visit my blog , which I probably need to update more often. You can also find me on IRC on Gimpnet and Freenode as “silwenae”, Mugshot , Flickr and del.icio.us . My handle / alias “silwenae” was a randomly generated name from an online roleplaying game that has stuck with me these last 7 or 8 years.
Thank you to the Foresight community for being so welcoming, and I look forward to helping out.
