Hello Linux community. As you can see, my screen name is brainard52. I'm not so much a noob. I just have incomplete knowledge. I love to think of myself as a computer nerd/geek and I like to say that I strive to become a better nerd/geek every day. I'm an avid Pokenerd, and I love other such childish things as Megaman and Yu-Gi-Oh!. I play Magic the Gathering as well. I love my gadgets. I currently have just a laptop and an android phone (Xperia Play). I'm an Ubuntu user, just because I'm lazy and it's simple (and because I'm not an expert in anything that has to do with computers yet). I started with Slackware 10 or 11, I don't remember. I remember hearing somewhere that went something like, "If you want to learn Ubuntu, use Ubuntu. If you want to learn Linux, use Slackware." I think I learned the most in the shortest period of time while I was using Slackware. Anyway, I want to learn software development, particularly C++ or Java. I've tried, but I am never able to fin time for it, but it will come soon enough. And to end, I'll say that I hope to contribute to the community the best I can. Sent from the R800x (CM9) that I wish were an Ubuntu Android.
