Re: Self-Introduction: Tatsuo Sekine



Uttered SEKINE "tatz" Tatsuo <tsekine sdri co jp>, spake thus:

> Hi all,

Greetings, Tatsuosan!

We welcome you into the Fedora Docs Project, as a translator, as a
techincal reviewer, and also in as many roles as you choose to
participate in!

I've taught some technical courses in Japan.  Since I'm most
comfortable at the Linux command line and use X11 to get lots of
xterm's on my screen, I was given the nickname NOGUI.  I hope that
doesn't mean one-who-codes-with-a-banana-in-each-ear.

Your English is several orders of magnitute above my Japanese, so do
not be shy about contributing in either language.  If some English text 
reads awkwardly, lots of us will be happy to patch it; what's
important is getting the text typed in, so feel free to help out
anywhere.

Mine too, and I'm a native English speaker ;-)  The Fedora Docs
Project will be excellent practical experience.  Again, contribute
anywhere, anytime.

Great.  Many folks in this project are mostly tech writer types and
do not have strong programming skills.  We are constantly coming up
with shell or tools needs and another shell guy or admin will be
helpful.

Excellent!

You seem good to have around.  Thanks for volunteering!

Cheers
