I ran Slackware back in 2003 or so, but then I was out of the Linux loop for some time. I am now returning, so my skills are dated and rusty. I want to change that!
I am trying out different distros at present (looking at Knoppix, Arch, openSUSE, CentOS. I also have an interest in FreeBSD). Since it has been so long since I was running a Linux kernel, I am testing the waters. I haven't settled into one yet.
Both personal and work. My background is in Help Desk (various tiers), but I am trying to transition over to an entry level NOC position. I am currently studying for the Security+ cert, and want to follow that with a CCNA track. I have more than one machine at home, so I also want to play around for fun. I am interested in meeting other enthusiasts, learning, sharing, and building my skill set.
I am interested in connecting with other enthusiasts. My main interests are Networking, Security, and Linux. I love all things tech. I've been playing around with computers since I was a kid (started out on a TRS-80 running BASIC).
Everyone was very friendly, and helpful. I will be coming back again.
