    Hmmm...my story is very similar to Xeno's. The creators of wheelsjamaica are firends of mine, they encouraged me to use the site.
    I did, and posted about 3 comments, cars are nice. I love cars that make me feel the Gs. Somehow though, I do not feel the pull as much as posting replies to devnull's quizes, or replying to matrix reloaded posts. I saw the link to techjamaica.com on WJ on May 12 2003, and here I am.

    It's a cool site. Not hyped, but cool. 8)
    Besides, who the heck on WJ would understand the following:
    cat /usr/src/linux-2.4/kernel/fork.c | grep "e a b" | cut -c 1-30

    A co-worker told me about it. Before that I had no idea that Jamaica had a techsite. I'm glad I was introduced to the site.

    I hate to tell you man, but I don't know what that means. I keep telling myself that it's no big deal. It's just cuz you write programmes for Linux and I don't. ;D

    I got to techjamaica.com through JALUG. Donavon told us about it at a meeting.

    I hardly get to talk tech with people. The techies I know either don't want to share or know only about the stuff they do in their company. It's like they are limited.

    Here I can really get feedback from people who sit in front of the computer and experiment with new stuff.

    ...oh, and there are no freaks here
    That may be a premature assumption. ;D

    But I still don't understand why there are so few kingstonians or even people from the corporate area being members of this site. I'm wondering if it's a psychological thing. Perhaps I should move to Mobay. At least it'd be easier for me to get to the LAN parties... ;D

    What is it with kingstonians anway? There are so few of us here. How queer is that? ???

    It's very interesting reading how some of the site's MVPs (most valuable posters 8)) actually found the site by chance. By chance I mean by hearing from somebody or seeing a link or seeing it in search results rather than by direct promotion. I shudder at the thought that there are many others out there like you guys who don't yet know about the site :-\. It has been said before and I have to take it seriously, this site needs some more promotion.

    cat: /usr/src/linux-2.4/kernel/fork.c: No such file or directory



    However, cat /usr/src/linux-2.4.21-0.13mdk/kernel/fork.c | grep "e a b" | cut -c 1-30 yields some result.
