Fedora 19: Fedora MATE-Compiz spin
I started running Linux around the 2.0.26 days.
I am an all around jack of all trades seasoned sysadmin and long time fan of the Fedora project.
I am very well versed in almost every OS. (Linux (and it's various distros), FreeBSD, Windows (all versions), and OSX).
I am always on IRC. Feel free to send me a message and ask me a question and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
I am always looking for ways that I can contribute to the Fedora community.
You can usually find me in #Fedora-Ambassadors, #fedora, #fedora-devel, #fedora-qa, #fedora-meeting, #fedora-test-day, #fedora-bugzappers, #vbox and #bitchx.
BitchX in the Fedora package database.
Some of the things I like to do (besides contributing to Fedora) are helping charities, giving back to the community, and helping out people that aren't as fortunate as I've been in life.
2 charities I support:
I am also a registered blood and platelet donor with Stanford Blood Center and donate regularly.
This year (2012) for the first time ever I participated in Be The Match Foundation's "Be The One Run".
In less than 5 days I was able to raise $200 in the name of Leukemia.
Besides that I'm an avid hockey fan and love traveling, trying new foods, being social and playing video games.
1) Continuing my hard work on MATE and Cinnamon.
2) Creating a larger local Fedora community as an ambassador.
3) Never ending QA work and bug zapping.
