Welcome to the Slackware Documentation Project

Well, something about me. 33 years old.

I'm a farmer, ex house builder. Autodidact in several domains (I repair car, I make electronic, I learn to grow vegetables alone, music, …), I started to use Linux near 2001, 1 year after buyng my first computer, and bring it to warranty around 15 ways : discovering the windows's registry base is an adventure … without acknowledgment nor documentation.

I'd started to use Red Hat, made some distro hopping (I sometime do hopping again), and I understood Slackware would make me a guru of linux OS. That's on way …

I use reals tools and technicals, made by human for human : vim, dvorak, slackware, dvorak and vim.

I know html and css well. I used Perl, but do not remember nothing. I think PHP must be known but it is a very not interesting language for me; I know it a little, I'm able to modify a script to covert my needs. I may take time to learn Python … the time … .

I think work done by other is very interesting : this often give me a solid base to work. Look at dokuwiki : we install, we work. Very nice. Same for a lot of things, even in real life : someone make beer, others drink. That's great.

I had participate to the fusion of the 2 french slackware communities which result in slackware-fr.org, and I try to help on irc and forum.

I love working animals, especially donkeys, and I love build tools and harness for them (here are the workers http://bioag.free.fr/spip.php?article16).
