I work for Angelo State University as somewhat of a Windows server administrator. I am the founding member of the San Angelo Perl Mongers. I'm fairly new to the Perl Community at large.
I can be found on irc in #yapc, #news, and #win32. I'm trying to help out with the win32.perl.org project. I've recently acquired a PAUSE ID and might have a module or two on the CPAN (by the time you read this). http://search.cpan.org/~jfluhmann/ [cpan.org]
I am also one of the organizers for YAPC::NA 2007.
It's official. Ubuntu is my distribution of choice. I installed Fedora Core 6 on my laptop yesterday, but had to fight with drivers and firmware to get the wireless card working. I hate having to screw around with that. I decided to go back with Ubuntu and try it on the laptop. After installing, everything just worked. It's GREAT!
I converted my laptop's previous Windows install to a VM on our ESX server. I plan on either installing Xen and converting the VM or installing VMware Player so that I can run the VM on my laptop and have the same config as before if I end up needing it.
Once I blew away the Windows install, I had to get something up and running on it since this laptop is what I use to work on all of the YAPC::NA stuff.
