Hi everyone

Thank you for the warm welcome! I am still reading through all of what
Jasna sent but I am taking steps to get more involved!

Thanks for all your help so far!

Rebecca,
Welcome to the group! It's nice to meet you! It looks like Jasna provided
an excellent overview with advice on how to get involved. I'm adding you to
my Google+ and will share an Ubuntu circle with you to get you connected
socially :) It's great to have you!
