Hi, My name is Joe O'Dell and I've been working on Fedora for quite a while.
+
Any queries send me a message :)
 
 
I will try to keep this short, as there are lots of places online where you can read more about me.
 
 
 
I'm a student at an Upper (Secondary) School in Bedfordshire (UK), I'm a GEEK and I have a passion for FLOSS, Linux and Software Freedom. :)
 
 
 
I have some of the more usual hobbies, other than being a geek, such as reading, making cool-beans friends and enjoying life!
 
 
 
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, and do have a look around!
 
 
 
Regards,
 
 
 
Joe
 
 
 
= Me & Linux =
 
 
 
Although I'm still at school, I've been using Linux for quite a while now - I first started using it way back in 2005, when I finally decided to give MS the boot. I'd finally become tired of paying for an OS, while there were perfectly good ones (and even better ones!) available on the internet.
 
 
 
I have a passion to share Linux, and hopefully I can benefit a lot of people!
 
 
 
= Contact =

* '''Free Media contributor since 2009!'''
 
I love being part of the FreeMedia group, as it lets me give something back to the world :)
 
 
 
I don't have extreme amounts of money that I can give, but by sending a couple of 25p discs every month, I know someone else has experienced linux, and that's all good!
 
 
 
If you are interested in seeing where I send my DVDs to, have a look at [[User:Ascenseur/FreeMedia|My FreeMedia Page]].
 
 
 
* '''Promoting Fedora'''
 
I aim to promote Fedora (but also other Linux distros) to the wide community in which I live in. This is why I have set up my own LUG ''(Linux User Group)'', as I believe that there is a lot I can help others learn, and Fedora is a part of it!
 
 
 
If you're interested in my LUG, have a look at [http://bedslug.co.cc bedslug.co.cc]
 
 
 
* '''Designing FreeMedia resources'''
 
I have created a FreeMedia mailer to use when sending DVDs abroad, so that it gets there safely whilst being '''extremely''' economical on postage costs.
 
 
 
The first version is available on my fedorapeople.org account [http://ascenseur.fedorapeople.org/fedora_mailer_F12.otg here].
