That was me. I probably could have gotten a ride, however, had I
asked on the list. Shame on me...

I would like to contribute to a mentoring program, however I don't
think it would get very far if I were the one to set it up. I can't
say I'm too experienced using most distros (other than gentoo) or
anything with a GUI, but I could help people out with:
- bacula config.
- linux c programming
- general CLI stuff
- configuring other linux "stuff" ( /etc/* )
- linux on USB flash
- installing gentoo
- "why will this not compile(or execute)!?" problems
Hopefully there is some interest for a mentoring program (from both
sides, the mentors and the students.) Maybe this should be the next
poll? (or better yet, be brought up at the next meeting.)
