User info
Gentoo user since 2005

Of the many wikis I have accounts on, I've been most active on the English Wikipedia, which I started editing in 2002. Please see my user page over there for more information about me. Leave comments or questions about my activities on this wiki on my talk page here. You can also e-mail me if it's particularly urgent. (But if I'm in the process of editing this wiki, leaving a message on my talk page is much better since I'll be notified the next time I load a page or preview an edit.)

Please note that although I'm pretty good with wikicoding, I still consider myself somewhat of a newbie when it comes to Linux in general. I first installed Gentoo in the fall of 2005, after having (e)migrated from Windows 95 (and Windows 3.1 before that) — but I don't really do much "under the hood" work on it unless something breaks (in which case I just Google and scour the forums for advice). So keep that in mind if you want to ask me a question about Gentoo.
