Good Morning
« on: March 02, 2015, 01:51:07 AM »
My name is Paul and I've been a Linux user for the last 15 years (growing up, my father always had an installation of Red Hat Linux dual-booted into the home machine, so it was unavoidable).  I like learning about things, writing stories about vampires committing identity fraud and wrestling matches that take place on a pirate ship full of zombies, and creating 2D and 3D desktop backgrounds that revolve around Batman, Futurama and/or Linux distributions.

One of my current goals is building a personal (and possibly public) Linux distro aimed at writers that have a very hard time concentrating (like me).  I'd call it ADD: The Anti-Distraction Distro.

Happy to be here and make all of your acquaintances. ;D

Always great to have another developer onboard. Welcome to the community, Paul.

Hello Paul! Welcome to the Cup of Linux Forums! Have a look around and feel free to join us in the chatroom or on Mumble voice chat, if you would like to.


That is a really neat idea for a Linux distro. It's probably something I'll need, because I have trouble writing and just stare at a blank page the whole time lol.

Same here.  I try to buckle down, and four hours later, I finished going through two seasons of Parks And Recreation.

Thank you guys for the welcome. :)
