Shane Collinge

Part computer programmer, part cartoonist, part Mars Bar. At night, he runs around in a pair of colorful tights fighting criminals. During the day... well, he just runs around. He eats when he's hungry and sleeps when he's sleepy.

I am a new linux enthusiast who has been following the trend for over a year now. I have successfully installed Debian and participate in helping bring Linux to more people. I have been working with computers for seven years on my own, learning as much as possible. I currently am looking for a sales position within the Linux community. Talks are under way with VALinux; my dream company. I have been a volunteer for both Debian and LPI.

A cyberjack-of-all-trades, Ben wanders the world in his 38' sailboat, building networks and hacking on hardware and software whenever he runs out of cruising money. He's been playing and working with computers since the Elder Days (anybody remember the Elf II?), and isn't about to stop any time soon.

Chris Stoddard

I work for Dell Computer Corporation doing "not Linux" stuff. I have been using computers since 1979 and I started using Linux sometime in 1994, exclusivly since 1997. My main interest is in networking implementations, servers, security, Beowulf clusters etc. I hope someday to quit my day job and become the Shepard of a Linux Farm.

Not Linux

I really should change the title of this column, because most of the material is about Linux....

I'm really happy with how the Answer Gang is turning out. Thanks also to Michael "Alex" Williams for helping to format the Mailbag and 2-Cent Tips starting this month.

Linux Gazette is now available via anonymous rsync. This is good news for our mirrors, because it decreases their update bandwidth. See the FAQ, question 14 for instructions.

I've got a new title now, Chief Gazetteer. This was invented by our sysadmin assistant Rory Krause.
