Just wanted to introduce myself.
I'm Roni, a mom with too many kids to count, old enough to know better, and young enough to not have grandkids.
I'm from Washington, the evergreen state, and we're drowned rats here right now.
I love my computer, almost as much as my husband. [ haha ]

I moseyed in here today for a glitch in one of my systems, I know what's wrong... I can't get it corrected yet... but I can research it and verify the likelihood I'm right. Especially since I don't really really know, I'm just guessing. Not sure yet if it's solvable in a reasonable manner... but I'm finally getting the crash course in Linux I've been putting off since Feb2006. February is when I bought my little red and yellow Linux Bible and it's just been sitting here getting dusty. Got the Knoppix bootable cd in my laptop, so the immediate need for hubby to be on the internet is solved. The real problem is our addiction to this User-Brainwashed, err, -Friendly interface with Whinedows. ha ha. Not that I'd give up my new one, it's my baby. They call it "mom's computer". They call the laptop "Dad's". So, it's kind of important for me to get it up and running again. Cool thing is I'm finally taking the time to clean it up. You know how you put it off.....

Anyhoots, not asking. Not yet. When I have a question I'll post it with an appropriate title. And with all the details including all the intelligent things I've done so far.

:thumbsup: :flowers: :trumpet: :inlove: :cool:
surely you must know I'm kidding.

I am sure that if you get stuck, some of our members running Linux can help you with a problem or two or three or four!
