Good Morning

Post by davidjmemmett » 2009/03/03 12:47:51

Hey,

Introducing myself here (couldn't find none of the usual Introductory forums), I'm David, a developer from Sheffield, UK. I am currently not using CentOS but will be this afternoon - throwing it on my work comp. Will post my experiences and share views with the community.

I've been a Linux user for years using RHEL and Zenwalk, so I'm fairly familiar with things.

I guess one of the main topics that I wanted to talk about on here will be using MS Active Directory/LDAP for gnome login.

Cheers,

David

Hi David,

A warm welcome to the CentOS community :-)

Please feel free to get involved, share experiences, seek help or just offer a point of view.

Regards,

Ned

Hi [b]David[/b], welcome to [i]CentOS[/i].

Thanks for that [i]Good Mooning[/i] (sic)! I haven't been [i]mooned[/i] at for a very long time. You're not related to [b]Bart Simpson[/b], by any chance? ;-)

I hope that [i]CentOS[/i] will serve your computing needs well and that you will have no problems in [i]finding your feet[/i].

Perhaps you would like to make a mention, in your profile, that you are located in the UK's steel city -- by doing that the [i]From[/i] box, by your forum posts, will not be blank.

Typical moderator! Spends so much time in bed that he doesn't realise the world continues to revolve without his interaction. :roll:

Evidence. I made a call to a certain telephone number at gone 1100 hours, local time. Mrs Slider answered my call and said that someone was still in bed . . . :-o

If that truly was the case, then you have just implied that [b]toracat[/b] must have been skiving (UK) / slacking (US) on that day! :lol:

In place of the fresh salmon & single cream someone's rations will have to be reduced to cat biscuits & water. :cry:

Now do you see what you've done [b]Ned[/b]? :roll:

Thanks all, and no I'm not a Simpson, I commonly greet people with "Good Mooning" as opposed to "Good Morning", some sort of childish humour i guess - helps keep up spirits! :lol:

I'm in the middle of an install of CentOS 5.2 - its 20:46, i'm in the office and 65 minutes left until I see a different dialog, thats 135/200 minutes elapsed... :-o

Fingers crossed I'll be set up ready for the morning!

In that case I sincerely apologise for the edit - my mistake for thinking it was a typo :-)

Hope you get the install finished by mooning :-D
