Hi from Australia

Post by handsomegenius » Sun Apr 14, 2019 10:08 pm

Hey everyone,

I'm James - I'm from Melbourne. Very happy with this operating system and grateful to the team who put it together!

I work as a freelance writer. As I get better with the OS, I would be able to help out with the project with a bit of spare time here and there if you need any docs or website content written :)
