Introduce Myself

Postby ran0vertly » Wed Feb 26, 2014 9:11 pm

Hi Guys
My pseudonym on the internet is Ran0vertly, my real name is David and I live in Australia. I have traditionally used Windows but became disillusioned with it after XP/Windows7. A work friend suggested linux and so Im giving it a go. I have Linux Mint 16 mate running on my Desktop computer and Raspbian on my RaspberryPi. I aim to become proficient in a Bash shell and learn the basics of programming in Python and C. I have quite a steep learning curve ahead of me and Im looking forward to it.
In the unfathomable sea of 1's and 0's, a 2 must have gotten in there!
