HELLO From Spatry!
« on: March 06, 2014, 01:29:13 AM »
Hi I am Spatry, the Host of "Cup of Linux" on YouTUBE. I have many years of computing expertise and I decided to make a FULL SWITCH to Linux in March 2011. My goal is to educate, entertain and inspire anyone who is considering Linux as an alternative for computing.

I got my first taste of Linux in 1996, it did not suit my needs at that time but I kept revisiting it until the time came when it was able to meet all of my personal requirements. To this day, I still use older Windows software but it is all backed by the Wine compatibility layer. In rare occasions, I will use disposable virtual machines as a time-saver...

Presently I am using Arch/Manjaro as my Daily driver. I use Debian on my file server and Opensimulator closed worlds.

It's really a good looking concept, and breaking SMF... that's gonna be a hard one ;D

I've been enjoying my time with this forum software.  It appears the staff have gotten an easier way of modifying posts, along with our moderation panels being better as well. 

Nice to see you supporting the forum Spatry.  I really enjoy the effort you've put on the forum, and I also enjoy being with the community as well.  I'll be donating soon to help with your server fees.  ;)
If you're needing assistance feel free to message me.

If you're wanting to get some basic knowledge on who I am, feel free to ask.  In short, I'm just a coder who writes in C (Unix) and Java.  I am also a GNU/Linux advocate.  In my spare time I enjoy doing malware removal as well.  ;)
