And here I thought that at 36, I was an 'old fart' when it came to
playing with computers. By the sounds of it, I'm still wet behind the
ears :)

I've been doing this since my first computer, a TRS-80 model III
(cassette tapes for storage, 48k of ram (that was the upgrade) and
hexeditors were my favorite toys).  I was shown linux for the first time
by a friend of mine the same day I passed my last mcse exam.   I've long
since let the mcse lapse and haven't used anything other than linux in
years for both desktops and servers.
