I'm part of the-hug, and a bit of a Linux geek having first installed it from when the distro of choice was Slackware and the kernel version started with a "0.9". I've moved on a bit, dabble occasionally in Gentoo, but mainly run Ubuntu. At least until systemd is pushed onto us.

As of 2016 we have moved to Nairn in the north east of Scotland.

This is a mountain bike with oversized tyre. Anything over 4inches wide gets dubbed a fatty. When I spotted a last years model selling relatively cheaply, I fell for it.
