Hi, my name is FRiC, but the name was taken by someone else, so I'm FRiCX here on Experts Exchange. I've been a member since June 2008 when I registered to read something, but only started answering questions in a moment of madness in July 2010.
I was a founding member of #LinPeople, one of the first Linux support IRC channels. Although I don't use Linux anymore except on my little EEE PC, Unix was still my first OS and I continue to use the Unix based Mac OS X on my MacBook. Even though I use a Mac, I'm the system administrator in an all Windows shop, and I continue to do tech support for hundreds of users.
My greatest moment of fame on the Internet was being mentioned together with Rob Levin aka "lilo". The quote below comes from an article in the September 1995 issue of the Silicon Times Report, written by Scott Dowdle.
I've had the opportunity to participate in some Internet Relay Chat (irc) conferences with other Linux users around the world via the #linpeople channel on the us.undernet.org IRC server site. This past week I've spent hours upon hours in IRC learning from some of the Linux gurus who participate in the #linpeople channel. Folks like FRiC, lilo, maxit, and others. Those might sound like weird handles but those folks are tops when it comes to friendly help. Most people who participate in the #linpeople say that it's much more friendly and helpful than reading documentation... and besides we enjoy joking around too! :) If any readers have access to the Internet and IRC, please feel free to join in by connecting to us.undernet.org and joining the #linpeople channel... which is basically going 24 hours a day.
