Hi Pia, All
Pia, thanks for the shout-out.
I've been lurking on the Linux-aus list for the past month or so, and I
took this as a sign (to finally pipe up).
Please allow me to take the opportunity to introduce myself briefly.
I'm Joshua Jae Wulf ("Josh" is fine), also known in Hare Krishna circles
as Sita-pati das. I live in Brisbane with my wife and our three year old
son. I run a mixture of Fedora and Ubuntu at home, and RHEL at work (I
work at Red Hat). I'm mainly active in LUG Vegas here in Brisbane. I
have a long range goal to influence the Hare Krishna movement to ditch
proprietary software and go completely FOSS
After the usual 8-bit youth (Atari all the way!) I started assembling
PCs in the early 90s, was a commercial software developer in the
mid-90s, and moved into system administration in time to surf the heady
days of '98-'99. It was about then that I installed Red Hat 6.1 on a box
in the back room, where it was clandestinely employed as a router /
I took a few years off IT from 2000 - 2003 to do volunteer work in South
America, then installed Debian Woody when I got back to Australia in
early 2004. Since then I went from working at an ISP to joining Red Hat,
and have been playing with Fedora and Ubuntu (I first tried 4.10 and
then revisited 5.10 - sweet!).
Oh, I've also been using Planet for a year or so now (at
www.iskconnews.net), and when I joined the list I finally made some
connections between names and personalities.
Anyway, that's a brief biographical sketch so that you know who's piping
up from the cheap seats.
