I found out about norcal-hug through the NBLUG mailing list.

I haven't been able to make very many of their meetings, though. :-(

I got an associate's degree there. :-)

I'm trying to place whether or not I might know you. I knew a Scott
through the math lab, but I'm pretty sure that wasn't you.

I have one of Dell's "n series" laptops, with Ubuntu factory
installed. I'm pretty happy with it.

I also have an old Apple G3 tower with a bizarre SCSI hard drive
configuration. It took me about a week to get it to boot Linux. :-P
(It would install just fine, but Grub wouldn't boot off the drive.) I
think I'll stay away from trying to put any Haiku PPC builds on it.

Assembly language experience is [important] for the maturity and
understanding of how computers work that it provides.
