I work as a full time software developer and when I am not working I am either working on opensource projects (like the pineapple) or playing the drums. If certifications mean anything to you I am A+, Net+, Security+, Linux+, LPIC1, Linux Pro, Novel Suse Specialist, and Novel Data Center certified. The name newbi3 isn't some attention getting approach. I started my computer networking class a year before everyone else and all of the people in the class called me "newbie" because I was younger than them and after a while I warmed up to it and it stuck. If you ant to talk about something (science, software, space, physics, music) go ahead and PM me!
