Well it is such an important subject :roll: :roll: :roll:
My experience of women in computing is that there are some people that can learn and others that can't, the majority of the latter are male! :P :P :P
still looking for that door into summer

A moment for reflection here. What about our Slippery Friend? Is he in fact a mermaid?

Gadzooks! :shock:


I think it's more sort of neuter (or neutered) :lol:

Edit: It is not unknown for couples to share a persona (just to make it more confusing)
So, horror of horrors, he may be both! :shock:
The sig between the asterisks is so cool that only REALLY COOL people can even see it!

oh, just seen this post, going to bump it cause it is important, I must admit I only ever get problems online, or within the school community(male network managers/techies), whenever I have been to linux expos or lug meetings I have never had any problems. I must admit having this handle does make it pretty obvious and it can be hindrance especially when asking for help, or even worse when I am trying to help someone, but it isn't as bad as it was 10 years ago when I really was a linux girl and attitudes have improved....just my 2 pence worth.

Hmm, I started with Linux ten years ago (in October), which means that this year must be the tenth anniversary of the LXA pilot magazine.
I wonder if there will a party or other celebrations (the good thing being that we get to do it all again next year when it will be LXF's proper tenth anniversary). :)

I know, I know. Was just tongue-in-cheek :P Had just been re-reading some of the old userfriendly.org comics with the Miranda character, so I couldn't help it... ;)
