Well it is such an important subject Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes
My experience of women in computing is that there are some people that can learn and others that can't, the majority of the latter are male! Razz Razz Razz

A moment for reflection here. What about our Slippery Friend? Is he in fact a mermaid?

Gadzooks! Shocked


I think it's more sort of neuter (or neutered) Laughing

Edit: It is not unknown for couples to share a persona (just to make it more confusing)
So, horror of horrors, he may be both! Shocked

oh, just seen this post, going to bump it cause it is important, I must admit I only ever get problems online, or within the school community(male network managers/techies), whenever I have been to linux expos or lug meetings I have never had any problems. I must admit having this handle does make it pretty obvious and it can be hindrance especially when asking for help, or even worse when I am trying to help someone, but it isn't as bad as it was 10 years ago when I really was a linux girl and attitudes have improved....just my 2 pence worth.

Hmm, I started with Linux ten years ago (in October), which means that this year must be the tenth anniversary of the LXA pilot magazine.
I wonder if there will a party or other celebrations (the good thing being that we get to do it all again next year when it will be LXF's proper tenth anniversary). Smile
