= Me & Linux =
 
 
 
Although I'm still at school, I've been using Linux for quite a while now - I first started using it way back in 2005, when I finally decided to give MS the boot. I'd finally become tired of paying for an OS, while there were perfectly good ones (and even better ones!) available on the internet.
 
 
 
I have a passion to share Linux, and hopefully I can benefit a lot of people!

=== Free Media contributor since 2009! ===
 
I love being part of the FreeMedia group, as it lets me give something back to the world :)
 
 
 
I don't have extreme amounts of money that I can give, but by sending a couple of 25p discs every month, I know someone else has experienced linux, and that's all good!
 
 
 
If you are interested in seeing where I send my DVDs to, have a look at [[User:Ascenseur/FreeMedia|My FreeMedia Page]].
 
 
 
=== Promoting Fedora ===
 
I aim to promote Fedora (but also other Linux distros) to the wide community in which I live in. This is why I have set up my own LUG ''(Linux User Group)'', as I believe that there is a lot I can help others learn, and Fedora is a part of it!
 
 
 
If you're interested in my LUG, have a look at [http://bedslug.co.cc bedslug.co.cc]
 
 
 
=== Designing FreeMedia resources ===
 
I have created a FreeMedia mailer to use when sending DVDs abroad, so that it gets there safely whilst being '''extremely''' economical on postage costs.
 
 
 
The latest version of it, which includes a customs label pre-inserted, is available on my Fedora People account at [http://ascenseur.fedorapople.org/fedora_mailer_new.otg ascenseur.fedorapeople.org/fedora_mailer_new.otg]
 
 
 
=== Fedora Ambassadors ===
 
I was a Fedora Ambassador, however I was unable to continue due to education commitments.
 
 
 
I have an aspiration to once again become an Ambassador after I finish my education.
