Hi all, I'm Mark from Norwich, U. K.  I found Datahopa from the link on the AI Dreams website.  I'm currently unemployed but studying Cisco networking via the Open University.  Not quite sure what else to say right now.  Any Linux users here?

Hi Mark and thank you for introducing yourself to the forum, always good when a new member joins. 

At the moment you have limited functionality on the site but as your post count increases that will change.

Don’t think anyone here uses Linux but I might be wrong.

sign-welcome aboard  Smiley

Welcome aboard Mark, I have one can say tested the waters of various linux operating systems Grin  I have not done much with packages and all there dependencies, just basically used whatever programs came with the distros. I like Debian and ICE. ICE makes a nice small light weight os, and I might re-install it on one of my machines in the future once I get a touch screen.

Haha, yes I remember that too.  Nicholas Parson is a great entertainer or host I suppose more accurately.

In more recent times of course there is Alan Partridge and Radio Norwich  lol

Well met, Mark! Welcome to Datahopa, from across the pond! While I can't truthfully say that I'm a Linux user, I DO have ubuntu installed on a Virtual Machine, for the purpose of testing websites that I develop, and to "learn the ropes", so to speak. Of course, I also have XP and Windows 8 installed on VM's, too, but that's a rather long story. Tongue Feel free to post whatever comes to mind, as long as it's not overly offensive, and doesn't smell like "processed pork meat product". Cheesy

Hey Mark! Nice to see a new name (not that there's anything wrong with the old ones... Roll Eyes)
I have fooled with Ubuntu for many years off and on. Windows always seems to win out because of its widespread popularity. It's a shame there aren't more Ubuntu adopters to help raise it from a low hover.

I'd give you a "Get out of Jail card", ...if I had one...which I don't...so don't get thrown in the Sin Bin!!

Again, Welcome!!

Well yeah but it was highlighted in my browser and I didn't want Mark to think that I never noticed!! You know...it's always nice to be polite, and try to do things that are right! (at least that's what my daughter's toy always said when she was little!).

Seriously, it WAS highlighted as if there was a NEW posting and I didn't give a glance at the date as I was in a hurry!! DOH!!!  Grin

No worries. We were all probably mildly entertained. Smiley
