*Job: Linux Systems Administrator
*Company (University): St. John's University, Collegeville, Minnesota
*Your goals in the Fedora Project:
I'd like to write documentation, but I'd also like to be helpful to
others in the Fedora Documentation Project as well. I can review
documentation for technical accuracy and edit it for clarity. So
whatever needs attention right now is what I'd like to work on. I'm
completely up for suggestions concerning what I should start working on
*What other projects or writing have you worked on in the past?
I'm the only Linux system administrator at the university where I work
so I'm responsible for all levels of Linux service and support from Help
Desk to Desktop Administration to Server Administration. I spend a fair
amount of time listening to users' needs and problems which I address
accordingly. Quite often that involves writing short mini-howtos for
the professors to pass onto lab assistants or students.
*What level and type of computer skills do you have?
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science from the university where
I am currently employed (St. John's University). I'm an entirely
self-taught Linux system administrator and have used Linux for my own
personal use since I was in high school.
*What other skills do you have that might be applicable? User interface
design, other so-called soft skills (people skills), programming, etc.
I'm an experienced Java programmer and am also comfortable in Perl.
*What makes you an excellent match for the project?
I find it rewarding to help others learn and use Linux. I've converted
or at least introduced many of my friends to Linux. I hope that by
contributing to the Fedora documentation project I can help even more
people learn and use Linux.

Thank Jason, for your Self-Introduction. Also I have been systems
administrator at universities, and give technical support for
mini-supers (Convex, now HP). I was 10 yrs at http://cwi.nl
office automation on a Dec 11/23, so without separate I&D space and 4 8"
floppies !!! We wrote a multi user editor for 4 terminals, but when the
console started with nroff, the beast started swapping on 8" floppy. We
bought later an 11/34, what had the same problem as not having s&d, the
researchers who were lucky had a 11/45 and later on the 2nd Vax 11/780
After those ten years I went to SIL, who are doing ( http://sil.org
6500 languages in the world, I could do programming and bringing
Berkeley Unix on a 11/73 from Dec with Tex and MetaFont. We printed
interlineair text, eg. Zapotec-Spanish next to each other, where the
right column was the footnote!
After that I did the boring part: counseling and earning (lots of)
money, but that went away again because of a nasty illness I have.
That is my story...
