I realized I have never done a 'self-introduction' to any of the
Fedora items.. so I had better do so now that I am a chief asbestos

Full Legal Name: Stephen Smoogen
City, Country: Albuquerque NM, USA UTC-07:00
Profession: Systems Administration, Computer Security, Loon.
Affiliation: University of New Mexico
Your goals in the Fedora Project: To help build a stable enterprise
Linux and have a good desktop platform.
Historical qualifications:

I started in Linux in 1992 when working as a student at New Mexico
Tech. I got handed a box of floppies to try out and found Linux to
have all the tools I needed to get a remote telescope communication
working that I couldnt do with other software. I then went to work at
Los Alamos National Labs and then a browser company called Spyglass.
At Spyglass, I worked with Red Hat on the Red Baron browser (ok I did
QA on it in the back room while trying to keep the AIX 3 boxes
running). I went to work at Red Hat in 1997 as a Technical Support
Monkey, and worked at Red Hat til 2001 in various places. I then went
back to work at Los Alamos and then Sandia National Laboratories for a
year. I am currently working as a Unix/Linux Administrator at the
University of New Mexico while I work on my Masters/Phd that I am
hoping to someday maybe sorta get.

I have done mostly computer systems administration, and computer
security. My programming skills have been more on finding where a core
dump occurs and what input triggered it. I am hoping to help grow EPEL
to a larger audience and to work eventually on a not-so-l33t-security
