So this is just a test to see how well this blogging thing goes for me. I seem to have found time to mess around with this sort of thing.

So here is a little background on myself. I'm from the deep south (N. Georgia to be exact). I've been using various Linux distro's over the past 11 years, everything from Slackware, Gentoo and Arch to Ubuntu, Redhat and Mandrake. I've done a little bit of everything and a lot of nothing. I do not claim to be a Linux guru, I just tend to be more of a power user. I like my machines to be fast, responsive and straight to the point. I have almost zero formal training in computers. I've taken three computer related courses at the local community college. That being said, let me speak a little about my current machine.

I've got a HP DV4-1222-nr running Archlinux x86_64. The processor is an AMD RM-72 which runs quite hot most of the time. The laptop has 4GB of DDR2. My startup time from grub is about 19 seconds to user login. I've had it shorter but it just didn't work the way I was planning for it.

I spend most of my time on the command line. Even when I'm in a GUI I've always got a terminal running. But, as far as GUI's go, I use fluxbox for a window manager and mainly qt applications such as konsole, arora, calibre etc. You can find various screenshots of my desktop on under the user cobra2.

Well that does it for post one.
