About Derek

It all started with the Apple IIe. Then it exploded from there. I was always interested in computers. In my senior year of high school I was running BBS out of my parents house. It was running off a Performa 640CD.

In high school I ran and sat up two computer labs. I ran a lab with original iMac's (picture to the right). At that time, I was still afraid of linux. I was still a fan of the GUI. ;)

In recent years, I moved out of "the geek world". About 4 months ago I got back in to things. I thought that I would do it the right way. One day I got a free server from a friend and thought that I would mess around with Linux. And I am having a blast with it! I run my own domain, email, web server, VoIP and a personal Wiki page for fun.

I look forward to serving the Fedora/Linux community!
