Allow me to introduce myself. I am Dreadnought Six. I was the former administrator for the somewhat popular tech blog named Tech Gum. I currently write freelance in my personal yet nonexclusive blog called the Unfinished Basement.

To many, I am a friend. To some, I am a foe. To only but a few, I am a brother. But to one, and one only, I am a lover.

I am currently a first year Computer Science student, and rightfully so, I am lazy (which is probably why you’re seeing this post on Christmas Eve). I am a devoted born again Christian, a professional League of Legends practitioner, and a 5-time Pokemon Master (captured: 652). I’ve been a Windows user my entire life, with a small part of my life (I namely called the ‘iDark Ages’) liking the Apple brand. The main author of this blog, tPenguinLTG, is a close friend of mine (you decide) and as he so desperately needed to, introduced me to the world of Computer Science (seriously, I was suppose to be chef) and to the world of Linux.

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.

– Albert Camus

I find a sense of freedom in Linux, which is why I’ve decide to take the leap of faith. I’m not yet entirely engrossing myself into the operating system which means I’ll still have my Windows 7 partition. I’ve decided long before this blog existed, that I’d install Linux Mint. Alas, I’ve seen a new operating system named CrunchBang (#!), to which I fell in love with the moment I saw it.

Follow my blog the Unfinished Basement, or else.

Hello there!

My name is DdcCabuslay.  I am one of the authors who will be sharing my first-time experience with Linux.

A little brief bio of myself; I consider myself a tech nerd.  I immerse myself in news from the world of smartphones and video games.  I myself am an Android user and a gamer (primarily Nintendo).  As for computers, I’ve used Windows my whole life, and my current machine runs Windows 7.

For my Linux distro of choice, I will be using PCLinuxOS.  It was recommended to me by tPenguinLTG as a distro for the “Windows know-it-all” type of people.  As a 2nd year Computer Science student, it’s going to be important for me to understand the ins and outs of Linux, as it’s an OS that’s going to play an important role in a computer scientist’s future.  I will begin my first Linux focused class in Winter 2015.

That’s enough about me for now.  If you’re on Twitter, you can follow me @DdcCabuslay if you want to hear me complain about everything.  We’ll talk soon!
