Welcome to my first Blog site. I've had the idea to start one for a while. The idea came when I would continuously search on how-to (insert project here) on my Linux box, sometimes things I've already fixed, and tried to fix again! Most the time, I just forgot one step, and it caused alot of headache and frustration. This blog will serve as a reminder for me, and a reference for all my Linux friends in the world.

As a basis for this blog, I submit for you, the stats on my computers:
