as told to smileeb
How old are you?
I am 55 years old.
Gave birth (or breath?) and lived with a son and a daughter in/from 1981 and 1987. I still like them. Hope they like me too. We are living together at this moment.
Retired or working and for how long and at what?
Scientist working in Bulgarian Academy of Science in physics and chemistry fields.
What is the area you live in like. Weather, Quietness, Scenery?
Bulgaria, living in Sofia.
Are you handy with your hands and have any hobbies?
What I am doing right now?
I am cooking now runner beans. Here in Bulgaria we say "green beans". And I am doing yogurt (we say "sour milk"). I like cooking and I almost don't like to cook. (The milk was almost over and I took it off to cool down)
Do you like to travel, go camping?
What do I like? I like human conversation at this time of my life. It seems to me it is the only thing you can really gain.
As for hobbies, I like reading very much. I have recently read "Hunger" from Knutt Hamsun. Before that, I read an American SciFi from the 1950’s. Next, I will read about the Ancient Greek Sceptics.
I liked photography and I played volleyball. Now I am playing life.
I am a part of i2p network running it 24/7 on Odroid U3. I roll and smoke cigarettes and I drink alcohol.
What caused you to try Linux and join this forum?
Why I am here? Well, even if I was on Windows and found this forum I would be here. But once upon a time, I became angry on Windows and tried GNU-Linux. The first brand was the Knoppix LiveCD. Me and my daughter, 13 years old at the time, looked at this and said: Hm-m-m, looks tasty! At this point we switched to GNU-Linux. I installed the most favourite GNU_Linux brand called Ubuntu. My daughter and I were happy, initially. But not long after that, I got angry with Ubuntu. You can see this in their forums under my nick "UncleV."
At that time I was ready to come back to Windows but my daughter told me "Hey, calm down"! Then I saw there a mention of PCLinuxOS. I installed it and I am happy with it right now. Thank you PCLInuxOS'ers and especially Texstar!
I am running LXDE on a 14 years old computer at work and KDE on 5 year old computer at home.
Why do I like PCLinuxOS? No other popular operating system is so reliable.
If you want send some pictures of you and your area.
Here, I took a picture of myself. I hung out of the window and pointed the phone on me.
