Just saying "hi"

Postby triplebtalk on Thu Sep 19, 2013 10:56 am

Hi all,

I'm Alex from Australia and I'm semi new to this whole "Windows-free" thing. I've been dabbling in Linux for a few years now - usually in a server environment and two weeks ago, I decided to take the plunge. I have thoroughly enjoyed being a Linux-dweller ever since then.

I work in the IT sector (freelancing), I'm proficient in PHP, Javascript, Perl and Python; a C++ hobbyist and a lover of all things technology.

Any way, this isn't my autobiography; so I'll see you around the forums!
