Via Andrew Cooper:
I just discovered your youtube page a few days ago. Since then I watched 99% of your videos, and I have to say it is a great thing you are doing. It got me excited that people like you are out there helping people across the world, with just the use of the internet. I was a big fan of yours when you were on Tech Tv, and I am glad to see the “call for help” intent is still out there!
Some people don’t see me as giving back to and trying to support the community, but that’s not my problem. I’m very happy to know you were able to discover what we’ve been up to as of late. And speaking of late, as I’m composing this at 2:40am, there are people in the chat room trying to help someone fix a crazy CD problem. A few hours ago, “fatboy” hopped in and claimed: “Oh by the way chris thanks to your vid about the computer restarting and freezing on its own and all, i moved my computer to a cooler room and now it doesnt make this weird sound like its being overworked and also it doesnt freeze and it runs smoothly.”
Anyways, I was wondering if I could get an invite for LockerGnome? I am not so sure what it takes to get an invite, so I decided to just ask out right. Also, I have a quick question. I am just starting to get into Linux. Well, a few months ago. At the end of my college degree courses I had a linux class (which was made because of me, haha) and we used Suse linux. I am about to turn an old pc into a linux box.. and I am wondering what you recommend what version of linux I use to teach myself the basics? There are so many out there, it’s tough to decide. Thanks for your input, and keep up the good work. I’ll be stopping in the chat more often!
I’ll yield all Linux questions to Matt Hartley (or any one of my Linux followers, for that matter). As far as invitations to blog on Lockergnome – ask me again in a few weeks. We are still hoping to announce something new at Gnomedex, and would certainly welcome you, so long as you meet the general criteria. We’re in the process of migrating from WordPress MU to Drupal (for a few reasons), and the important pieces and people are finally starting to come together.
