Hi Nancy, when I first got involved with the Linuxchix, I was still
using Windows! But I wanted support and companionship of other geek
women, so I didn't have to rely totally on my son for advice. One of
the women I invited to the Linuxchix in turn invited me to this group,
so the circle is complete. :-)

While I've just been an end-user for years, I'm getting into technical
writing now, for my favorite music player, Amarok. It's a lot of fun!

Hang out for awhile, and you WILL find your niche. Hey, some of us
even appear with goats! [1]
