Hello guys and gals - this is my first post here. Just a bit about myself as requested. After nearly 30 years of using computers I have become a firm devotee of open source stuff. I am just getting into Linux (Ubuntu) on an old PC, and have Android ICS on my old Samsung Galaxy S i9000. You will see that I'm not an early adopter of hardware! I hate chucking good equipment out so I'm always looking at ways of extending their lives. But I'm not by any means an expert on computing, just an interested user prepared to try new ideas.
