Ready to frustrate myself a bit :)

Post by TSR » Sun Jan 14, 2018 1:24 pm

Hello world (or other cheesy salutation) :roll:

My nick / handle is TSR, I'm a "tech enthusiast", for lack of a better description. 8)

I've been around the block a lot, loads of LAN parties, online gaming, graphic design phase (didn't last long; stifling creativity kills it), network techie (wireless stuff), and have spent hours on days digging under the hood in Windows 7 64-bit ultimate to fix, tweak, improve, etc. the horror show that it is. (it's too restrictive and bloated) W10.. well, we all know why we're not going that route. :wink:

It'll be fun being a total newbie again, but I'm preparing to dive in headfirst, so please have some patience with me - I know to look & listen (and learn), so don't expect too many queries from me until I've exhausted the forum's available articles or burned out Google's search capacity. :wink:

Without further ado, nice to meet you all, I hope to learn a lot... please be gentle. :D

Thanks Moem :)

I've settled on going for the latest Mint MATE distro for simplicity and stability (touch wood) and I don't mind extra reading.. even if a lot of technical lingo / very in-depth detail seems frustrating, at least it'll be to my own benefit (and less frustration for anyone else). :mrgreen:

P.S. After reading over a fair number of articles, reviews, and forum topics, I've got to say, the overall community attitude is awesome. Very patient, helpful, helps with explaining to understand (not necessarily a cut-and-dried approach for answers). It's quite exciting. Will post a minor update once everything is installed and underway, and assess further if I get stuck with anything after that.

Thanks for the warm welcome!
