= 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!

If you ever feel like having a good chat with me, or want to ask me something, don't be afraid to email, IRC or even call me!
 
 
 
You are more than welcome to do that, and I'd quite like a chat!

=== 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 latest version of it, which includes a customs label pre-inserted, is available on my Fedora People account at [http://ascenseur.fedorapople.org/fedora_mailer_new.otg ascenseur.fedorapeople.org/fedora_mailer_new.otg]
 
 
 
=== Fedora Ambassadors ===
 
I applied to become a Fedora Ambassador on the 17th of February 2010 - As of the 22nd of February, I have cancelled it as I feel that I am not ready to take on the challenge.
 
 
 
If you want to track how the past application in the Ambassador program went, click [[User:Ascenseur/AmbassadorApplication|here]]
 
 
 
=== Creating a UK EventBox ===
 
In collaboration with [[User:Paulmellors|Paul Mellors]], I have started planning a UK EventBox.
