Along with that, I am on Verio‘s performance team.
I got my first computers from my Dad back around 1998, when he brought home a couple of compaqs (a pentium 75 and 100) from his office. It took me about 3 months to successfully install Debian from a CD a friend gave me (we didn’t have internet access). In a way, I feel like I am a late analog – digital bridge.
I have audiophilic tendencies; but being a student (and also being quite frugal), I haven’t invested too much towards it.
