Hey...

Postby Joe6Pack » Tue Jan 15, 2013 12:31 pm

Hiya All,
Last weekend, I took an old P4 Dell Desktop and installed Mint on it. So that makes me a newbie - albeit a very old one! My goal is to relax, have some fun and learn. This forum looks like an ideal place. Thank you all for having it. :)

The install went really smoothly. I have an error when I reboot concerning a problem accessing my floppy drive. I have seen it mentioned elsewhere here, so my first project will be to eliminate that error - prolly next weekend.

Smallish, somewhat boring bio: I have been programming professionally since way back in the 1900's, I have worked both in academia and in the real world - currently I am back in academia. I know a little about a lot of different things but don't consider myself an expert in anything. :lol: My only other real hobby is fastpitch softball. My daughter is in her senior year of college, finishing her softball career. I do get excited about softball. I hope to coach someday.

Cheers 8)
