Not a lot to say here really. I'm an experienced long time UNIX user who took a couple of years out recently and forgot a load of stuff. But now, I'm back into things, have installed Debian (very nice) and am getting back into C++/Java/admin/Perl/... and loads of other stuff...
Some favourites of mine...
