= 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 =

= Activities within Fedora =
* '''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 []
* '''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 latest version of it, which includes a customs label pre-inserted, is available on my Fedora People account at [s s]
* '''Fedora Ambassadors'''
I applied to become a Fedora Ambassador on the 17th of February 2010 - My application is still pending!
If you want to track my progress in the Ambassador application, click [[User:Ascenseur/AmbassadorApplication|here]]
* '''Creating a UK EventBox'''
I, in collaboration with [[User:Paulmellors|MooDoo]] have started planning a UK EventBox.
