I'm 42, married with one child. I'm doing a PhD in soil microbiology at Melbourne Uni. Trying to teach myself something about linux shell for the purposes of bioinformatics (using QIIME 2) at the moment.

Interested in environmentalism and politics.

I like the idea of an open source alternative to twitter.

@ericireland Welcome mate :) I'm 42, 3 kids, a Linux sysadmin from Adelaide. Feel free to hit me up with shell questions and I'll see if I can answer :)

@ericireland sing out if you get stuck with Linux, and good luck with your PhD

@defrisselle I'm using EndeavourOS (Arch linux) on a laptop, also have another mac laptop, and I've got a cloud instance running Ubuntu. It came as a shock to realise I have to type stuff into the command line just to use a usb stick on the laptop but I suppose by encountering these problems I'll learn stuff!
