He's on the Ubuntu list. Mind you he doesn't post as much as he used to.

I've followed Karl since he arrived on the Fedora list. I've tried to help him 
from time to time, but then he gave up on Fedora, and has been on the Ubuntu 
list since then, and seems to be happy with Ubuntu.

I think when you subscribe to a list, you want questions answered, and also 
want to help. Having had your question answered, and problem resolved, you 
want to give back to the community. Sometimes you are over enthusiastic, and 
try to answer every question posted to the list, even regarding questions 
about apps that you have never used, or havn't the faintest idea as to what 
they are for.

I'm sure that many of us are guilty of that, and I too, have been a bit too 
enthusiastic at times, and have shot myself in the foot, either by not 
reading the question correctly, or thinking that I knew more than I did when 
trying to answer a question.

Currently I try to help out with sound related problems on various distros, 
and have some success helping folks to get their sounds fixed.

Steven V, seems to be doing ok since he got his Asus mobo back from Asus. Karl 
L has settled down a bit, and even got a credit from someone else on the 
Ubuntu list, where Karl had made a usefull suggestion.
