Please allow me to introduce myself, I am a man of wealth and taste.
Kidding. Nice to meet all you minties! I'm actually quite new to this distro as I've made a huge cross linux-platform out of my laptop to try them all, both distros and desktop environments, but essentially stuck with Ubuntu as too noobish I am. That until I ragequitted for it being a huge buggy mess (I was actually one of the few madmen to even like Unity). Didn't wait for Quetzal to get Amazon thought police.
Now I'm using LMDE 201204 with Cinnamon, and I have to say I've never felt so damn good about an operative system. I'm still encountering a bunch of minor problems, but nothing tha can't be solved with a bit of searching and asking I think.
On the internet I'm generally a grammar **** (oh god it is a censured word...), or better a strenuous, untiring defender of the correct language against the attack of brainless youngsters, both for Italian and English. In other words, I never mind my own business. I hate modern abbreviations-to-the-bone, internet memes (yeah, I know I've written "ragequitted" just above) and so on. Proudly not on Facebook!
I've started to grow a real informatics interest when my university made me discover Linux, but I'm no geek as I can barely do the basic things right now. I hope one day I'll be. I'm more of a nerd right now as I'm studying physics and I have a real genuine interest for all that stuff, including its mathematic basis.
Other than that, I have to say that music is my life, and I obviously can't play a damn instrument. I have a bit of a rock culture, mainly liking the music from the latter sixties on, but being quite a freak from what derived from it too (like more modern movements such as punk and heavy metal), and really liking what rock came out from (blues, jazz, country, folk) even if I did never explore much of them and so I have no great culture about it. Among my favorites, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Doors, The Ramones, Dead Kennedys, Bad Religion, Rage Against the Machine, cKy and Black Mountain.
I think myself as a little cinephile too, but I lack some classic culture, a thing i intend to remedy real soon. Among my favorite movies, The Big Lebowski (oh, really?), The 25th Hour, Pulp Fiction, Memento, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Fight Club... I principally hate television, but I like a bunch of TV shows that I prefer to watch on my own instead of waiting for them to be aired (such as The Simpsons, Scrubs, Breaking Bad, Futurama, South Park...). I'm Italian and I think we have the best dubbing in the world, but I think that it just destroys half of the show quality and meaning anyway, so I prefer to watch anything in original language (I still need subtitles though...).
Among my favorite novelists, instead, there are James Ellroy and Chuck Palahniuk, but I think 1984 to be the best book ever written.
What has all this to do with this forum? Was it really necessary to write it down? Does anybody even cares about a word of it? I guess we all know the answers, but I just felt like writing a bunch of useless stuff. Anyway, hi to everyone, pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name, and remember to both take it easy and abide, anytime, anywhere.
The Dude minds.
