Hi I'm Lava. My interests are in order: God, making games, playing games, movies, computers.

I live in CA,USA. And it's hot right now.

I am glad I found this site, because I can fellowship with other Christians who code things like I do.

<< I'm D-SIPL (on most other sites PunkSarcasm), i'm 21 and live in Southampton, Enlgand and moving to Wales very shortly.

My hobbies are hacking (please dont make me post what a hacker is). It;s pretty much the only thing im good at really. I mainly hack in Python, currently writing an IRC client with a curses front-end. It's working fine so if you have *nix, Python and want to test it let me know.

I'm a Linux zealot and have been using it since i was 12 because my parents didn't like comps much and I couldn't afford windows on my pocket money
Best thing i ever did personally

I have a wonderful girlfriend called Leigh, she is the only girl who has ever made me forget about my computer for a day

Hi, I'm Teresa, I'm probably an odd one out here. I'm not a major gamer or anything, not in the game industry, nor do I plan to go into it.... although my BEST friend tells me that "technically" I am, as I plan to help him with his stuff.... but anyway.... I'm really into horses, lol. I'm here for moral support of my dearest friend (he goes by gamer4christ on here) and to learn more so that I can be more help to him. I've helped him come up with a game idea or two, and helped build on ideas he's had. That's pretty much it, Sorry I rambled on, lol. Like I said, I'm just the odd one out.

Howdy!

My name's Clint, I enjoy being creative and learning and serving my Lord. I'm currently a missionary by day and a game programmer by night (though I also do part-time computer contracting to pay the bills, as neither of the other two jobs pay very well at this point ). I live in northern Indiana, and am shortly out of college from Taylor University with a degree in Computer Engineering. I also enjoy juggling, unicycling, and studying theology.

DedicatedRider: If you find it encouraging at all, my wife is also on this board (Tonnyx), and she's not much of a hard-core gamer (though she loved Hero's Quest), nor does she do much programming (other than HTML/PHP), but she *really* loves horses. She gets excited about horses the way I do about Christian video games -- so yeah, that's pretty excited. Anyway, welcome! And you can rest assured that there is another person on these boards who shares your interest.

Heya, I'm Brandon. 24 years old, and I am a person who just wants to serve God and bring glory to Him. I like creating things like computer games, poems, songs, etc... I also like playing the piano. I'm not a professional at anything atm, I'm trying to find myself, and exactly what I am to be. I only know that I want to do great things for the Lord, but just how, I'm not precisely sure yet. Am getting close tho'.

God Bless,

Hi, my real name is same as my nick because I'm tired of thinking nick names and end up using bad ones anyway. I live in Finland (west from russia, east from sweden) where the summer has just ended and it's getting cooler.
I'm 20 year old guy and I have been programming mainly with c/c++ for about seven years now and after I found Christ about year ago I have started using my time to program for Jesus and it seems to be the best way I can help others to find our saviour, Lord Jesus Christ.

Because he is a bottle-neck for Linux development. I suggest they keep with the "bazaar" style of development by all means, but would suggest going with a more BSD style of development approach. Seriously Linus is far too over-rated. He admits he is lazy and got everybody else to do the work for him... fair play to him though.

Yes Linux is far too over-rated. People these days are like "i installed linux, its the best, i r teh 1337 h4x0r now, lol u windows n00bs..." etc etc. Like i said that all gets really boring after a while. Linux would have been so much better if they had taken the Minix concept further. Rather then the monolithic system approach. A micro-kernel system would have been far better.

Therefore Linux is based on concepts from the 70's. It could have been so much better. Anyways look into monolithic and micro-kernel systems and make up your own mind. I like Linux, its the best suited for my needs and i've been using it as long as i can remember, just don't get all blinded by the "wow i'm leet i use Linux" attitude.

I found an interesting conversation between Linus Torvalds and Andy Tanenbaum. I doubt anyone is interested, just wanted to backup my above statements.

Andy Tanenbaum:
MINIX is a microkernel-based system. The file system and memory management are separate processes, running outside the kernel. The I/O drivers are also separate processes (in the kernel, but only because the brain-dead nature of the Intel CPUs makes that difficult to do otherwise). LINUX is a monolithic style system. This is a giant step back into the 1970s. That is like taking an existing, working C program and rewriting it in BASIC. To me, writing a monolithic system in 1991 is a truly poor idea.

Linus Torvalds:
True, linux is monolithic, and I agree that microkernels are nicer. With a less argumentative subject, I'd probably have agreed with most of what you said. From a theoretical (and aesthetical) standpoint linux looses. If the GNU kernel had been ready last spring, I'd not have bothered to even start my project: the fact is that it wasn't and still isn't. Linux wins heavily on points of being available now.

Not really a good come back from Linus, the thing is this was written in 1992, a year after development, it wasn't too late for him to turn round, or at least start writing a microkernel based system. Therefore Linus is an idiot

Hi, everybody!

I'm Jennifer, HanClinto's wife. I'm 25 years old, also graduated from Taylor University with a degree in English Education. I am not currently teaching, however. We've been married for 5 days shy of 1 year, during which time I've been adjusting to married life as well as life in Indiana (I'm originally from a suburb of Detroit, MI). I recently put in an application to do tech support at a local middle school, which I think I would enjoy doing, so we'll see....

I like all kinds of music, from classical (Chopin is one of my favorites) to trance & other techno (DJ TiŽsto is my favorite). I don't like most Christian artists, although the Supertones are one notable exception.

I am the webmaster for my church's website, which was a fun opportunity to learn to use Dreamweaver as well as a little PHP. Lately I've been trying to learn to use TADS (a text adventure game thingie).

As Clint said, I really like horses. I first started riding in college (it was one of my P.E. credits), and I loved it so much I had to join the team. I competed at the walk-trot level (English riding) & got to go to Nationals my senior year, which totally rocked. After college, I got into training a little bit with Parelli & some other stuff with some friends of mine who have horses, but then I got married and moved, so I haven't had a chance to really work with horses for over a year.

Oh yeah, and it's pronounced "tonics", not "tonny-x".

that would be half my motive for getting linux. haha. thats y i wanna dual boot. windows is more practical for me. i just want to say that i use linux. i am a person that is anti-mainstream, and windows embodies "the mainstream" in the computer world. people often use windows because they wouldnt know wat else to do. i dont like that feeling of ignorance. so i would use mac or linux just so i dont hav to use windows. (but mac oscan only be used on their compys, and linux can go on just about any pc, and its free.)
but i would nevr use the word "leet" in a serious context.lol.

SSquared here. I live in the absolutely beatiful Pacific Northwest. I graduated from college many years ago and am now a software developer (C, C++, C#, and Java). I have been involved in music for nearly 30 years, with over 10 years in worship. Since last year, I have taken a break from music as I enter into a new passion of mine, photography. I have been practicing photography for around 4 years and just upgraded my camera a few months ago.

I am taking a big step and entering some photos into my very first contest this next week (at our local county fair). My wife and I went out tonight to pick some mat boards for the photos and I am totally amazed how well the mat's bring out the photos.

My favorite games are just about anything Star Wars, Medal of Honor games, Call of Duty, and the MegaMan Battle Network series on the Gameboy. Although photography and photo editing are really taking up most of my time these days.

Please don't be one of those people, i'm begging you. I post on Neowin quite a lot, and that is full of people like that. They use it because there friends rip into them about using Windows, when in relity, they are the ones running Mandriva, KDE and all the other tools that help people new to linux, stick them on a fresh base linux system with no window manager and they would cry.

It's hard to get respect in the Linux community. There are very few people that I know, that i could actually say really "know" linux and that I have respect for. Here is a quick list of things that will lose you "respect" in the Linux community.

- Saying Linux is an operating system
- Running the following distro's
Fedora
Red Hat (and variants)
Debian (and variants)
Mandriva
Linspire
Ubuntu
MEPIS

- Running KDE
- Asking stupid questions that are easily researchable in google

I'm not saying this is my list, but this is what I have generally found when talking to people who have been in the community a long time. Quite harsh I think but just a warning

Hi, I'm Jeremy. I enjoy just about anything envolving computers. I started my own business in July of 2002. (A & J Designs)

I love video games and vidoe game programming. I just got married on July 23, 2005. My wife and I both are avid gamers, console and PC.

Current games I'm playing:
XBOX - have about 60 games
Crimson Skies
Halo 2
Fable
Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes

Playstation 2 - have about 60 games
Red Dead Revolver
Dark Cloud
Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven
Tenchu: Fatal Shadows
Warhammer 40,0000: Fire Warrior

PC - have countless games
World of Warcraft
Guild Wars
Neverwinter Nights
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War
Unreal Tournement 2004
City of Heroes

...that's a lot of games to be currently playing, but it just depends on my mood and what system I want to play on at the time.

I've been doing programming, web-design and 3D animation since 1998 (in High School) and have loved it eversince! I've got several 3D modeling programs, GameMaker 6, Visual Studios 6 and few other little utilities I like to use.

As far as Christian activities...I actually work at my church as well as my own business. I'm the Youth Worship Director, Praise Band Director and Director of Media. This all keeps me pretty busy as well. Also, starting in February of 2006 I'm going to start teaching an Intro to Computers class.

Well...that's me, in a somewhat wordy nutshell.

If you going to toy with linux, at least make it into a decent to you can play with without it moaning too much like Red Hat. Go with either Slackware, Gentoo or Arch Linux.

It will give you something tangible to play with

Linux is a kernel. When you add programs to it, it becomes an operating system. But linux itself is just a kernel Richard Stallman goes on about calling it GNU/Linux when you are talking from the perspective ofit being an OS. Because GNU wrote a lot of the tools that add onto the kernel.

which RedHat are you running?

Has anyone ever used CentOS? It's a RedHat Enterprise Edition clone. I've got the ISOs and I'm going to set it up as a file server at my church on an old, yet massive, Dell server with a nice little RAID array.

I currently run Windows XP Pro on 2 machines, Windows 2000 on 1, Mandrake Linux 8.1 on 1, and OpenBSD on 1 as a spamfilter.

I've heard lots of good stuff about Gentoo and I'm gettin' an itch to install it over my Mandrake box.

I also have distros of Linspire and Knoppix, I love my Knoppix, I use it as a major techie tool to diagnose hardware and OS problems when Windows won't boot up properly.

I didn't think much of CentOS. I've warned you lot about Red Hat, but if you want to run it then fine, just if you ever change distro to something that conforms to the Linux standards then prepare to learn all over again.

oh dear (linspire). I would suggest using SLAX as a really good LiveCD, i'm not saying its better as I have never touched Knoppix (based on debian right?).

Yeah cracks me up too What also cracks me up is people who run lame distro's with half baked config utils, bad directory structure, package management and their pre-compiled binaries, in fact all of their packages are 486 running at a high clock speed. Now that cracks me up

I go by Hisart just about everywhere in 'here' and my website is Hisart.us, which I wrote in html. I used to do main-frame programing twenty odd years ago and have done zip since. I'm an artist and a Born Again Biker [Motorcycle] that is happily married 12yrs. I play very few games. My free time is spent with my six kids and wife.
That's about it.
God Bless!

Hey, My name is Dustin, but here I am known as Gamer4Christ, or just G4C, lol. I am 17, going on 18 this november. I am a Senior, and am being homeschooled. I am also taking a few classes at IvyTech, Math 111, and CAD fundamentals, which I am enjoying both.

I play soccer, actually I am a captain for our homeschool team, and we just got beat the other day 10-1... sad really... but we have a chance to redeem ourselves this Friday, lol. I would prefer playing American football, but there is not any homeschool friendly sports teams nearby. My football team is the Steelers!!! GO BLACK AND GOLD!!!

I have been programming for four years, and am loving it. I use C++, and VB, and I have worked with GameMaker 5. I am working on a game right now, it is called Kings of Ethristah. I wrote a book a while ago (BIG book, lol) it is called Eadoin.

Ummmm... I live in Tipton Indiana right now, but we are moving to Kokomo, which means I am going to be closer to my friends, lol(Mainly Dedicatedrider! Her and I are courting if you did not know ). I do not like music very much. When I do listen to it it is Contemporary Christian, but usually just one song, over and over... "More Then You'll Ever Know" I am forced to listen to my sisters, and dad's music ALL the time... Shania Twain... hate it!

Ummm... I think that is it, lol. So I best be going, so I will talk to ya'll later, lol.
God Bless Ya'll!!!! Later

600 pages eh? thats no small feat. i must commend you for sticking with it that long. I would stopped on ......page 50 or 60. I love to write, but i need to be motivated, and i lose interests in my own ideas fairly quickly. how sad.
anyway g4c, when its available, id really like to see a copy of your book.

RM: Yes, I really like the abreviation "lol" and Yes, I really do laugh that much.
It has not been published yet, lol.

Right now my book is 190 pages, in 59 chapters. but the font I used is really small, and the page is bigger then it really is going to be. So I figure when it gets everything edited and rewritten it should be around 500 pages, and 60 chapters, lol.

Crazyishone: Yeah I know how that is. I have had at least nine other book ideas get to chapter 3 and then just stop. But it sounds like I will have some buyers if it sells, lol. awesome.

It will be 60 chapters once he's edited it. (I'm helping with the editing, and it needs to be done in 60 chapters like he had oringinally planned.)

you know, MastaLlama, D-SIPL is ahard core linux fan... if it's centered tward beginners and will cause probs later, then he's againt it... good reason to. I played with RedHat and it messed me up. I used the more "advanced" Slackware distro and I've learned a lot about linux because of that.
I do suggest you get Slackware or a slackware based live cd/dvd
