I’m a 34 year old self-proclaimed geek who enjoys all things open source and Linux. I don’t use, advocate or really even condone the use of most proprietary technologies. (So, no, I can’t fix your Windows system. I can recommend some good alternatives, though.) My geekiness extends into Linux, Android, computers, information security, video games, music, movies, and programming.
I have been using Linux for about 7 few years now exclusively on all my machines except for one gaming partition on my main rig. Over the years, I have done a lot of reading, posting on forums and Googling to learn how to use it effectively, and I keep discovering new aspects of it every day. I firmly believe in the open source community and immensely enjoy helping others with Linux. Since 2007 I have been using ArchLinux to improve my understanding of what goes on ‘under the hood’ of Linux. While I’m no expert I do have a wealth of ‘hands-on’ experience with Linux and Linux systems. I’m currently a member of a number of Linux based mailing lists/forums and I am also an Admin of Bruno’s All Things Linux Forum. You can also catch me on irc.freenode.net @ #archlinux
I enjoy the challenge of figuring new things out, especially the challenge of bending my computer to do exactly what I need it to do for me. And that’s one reason I love open source and Linux in particular. I do not mind rolling up my sleeves and tinkering under the hood of my computers, both in the software and hardware categories. This blog will become a place where I can post articles about Linux I run across, tutorials, and other things that hopefully will benefit other Linux users.

Did you ever get Arch running on that Viewsonic G tablet?

No, unfortunately there is presently not a way to install Linux on this Android tablet. Hopefully in the future there will be a way, but currently Linux does not run on Tegra 2 processors. Although, this may happen sooner than previously thought:
“On January 3, 2010, Tegra 2 support for the Ubuntu GNU/Linux distro was announced by Nvidia support on an Nvidia developer forum. The platform still maintains very high amount of proprietary blobs and it is nearly impossible to use anything but preinstalled software.”
