Hello Group,

Excuse my introducing myself as a new member - a more ancient than 
norm "Newbie" having just recently celebrated my 66th and warmly basking in 
the "pipe and slippers" period - not!

Not a Guru either - though can claim over 20 years working with Unix initially 
with Sun computers in the CAD/CAM field - just short of 10 years renting the 
brain out to the automotive sector, latter two years of purgatory as a baker 
for Sainsburys LOL!

Currently using an old RM Machines P3 with Debian "Lenny" - hey it works 
brilliantly - only minor hardware tweaks.

Managed to persuade a few neighbours and friends to go down the GNU/Linux 
route after "rescuing" compromised/broken Windoze - which gave me purpose to 
set up the business to promote Linux, otherwise I'd have to take up knitting.

Shame I was not aware of the group previously as I've missed out on your last 
meet - the Waterhouse is my watering hole as well as they occasionally have 
my favourite bitter on tap - "White Star" from Titanic brewery in 
Stoke-on-Trent. I contracted quite a bit in Stoke and lived in Burslem so 
became acquainted with their other claim to fame other than the pottery 

I'll close before your ears fall off, look forward to your next meeting.


Adrian Clarke.
