Hi there,

I'm new on this list, and just wanted to introduce myself shortly.

I'm a German vet, working in Wales & England since January 08, first in 
Welshpool and now in Knighton, while living in Kington.

I started dabbling with RedHat during vet school, about 11 or 12 years 
ago, but as I couldn't get the Internet to work, it was more like a 
short interlude. The next try, about a year later, was with SuSE Linux, 
which worked quite fine for a few years then.
At the moment I'm using Gentoo on my desktop machine, and open SuSE on 
my wife's laptop.

What I like on linux, besides being free (mostly both aspects - as in 
free speech and as in free beer ;-) ), is the high flexability to adjust 
the system, the stable performance, even if you install lots of betas 
and the traceability of errors, when they occur.

I think I'm fairly experienced in linux problem solving (as far as 
private usage is covered), but more like "I do remember I solved 
something like that before, but I don't remember how" and searching 
again for it. :-))

I hope to get contact to like-minded people via the list, and sometimes 
I just enjoy reading discussions/ problems even if I can't provide 
advise or am not involved.
I don't think I can make it to the April meeting, as I am working night 
that day, and my mom is visiting that week as well, but probably I can 
make it in May.

@Julian Robbins: the swiss domain was just one of the more appealing 
free mail services, when I cancelled my German provider before I moved 
to wales, that's why a German guy with a Swiss domain lives in England. ;-)
And thanks for your kind welcome.

Andreas Ege
