Bio picture

Bio: Born in 1972, Dave Bechtel grew up programming in Basic with Apple ][e's, TI99 4/A, IBM PC (640K!) and a Tandy 1000SX, none of which actually had hard drives -- 360K floppy only. And we LIKED IT! ;-)

Eventually left BASIC behind, and moved on to programming in REXX and Bash.

Got interested in Linux around 1997. Started with Red Hat and went on to SuSE, tried several other distros and a *BSD or two, and has now settled on Knoppix/Debian/Ubuntu, in roughly that order. Currently living in Lake Zurich, IL.

Likes: Computers, motorcycles, Linux, reading and watching sci-fi (currently Star Trek TOS, Stargate, and Battlestar Galactica)
