Sayamindu is a member of The Answer Gang.

[BIO] I'm a school student from Kolkata, India.

I am currently in class XII (the final year of high school).

I began my journey into Linuxland in mid 2000.

The first distro I tried was Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 - and in the process I nearly killed myself. I am quite settled now with Mandrake 8.2, though I plan to try out Debian again soon.

I have worked in some Linux related projects, and I have also written a LDP miniHOWTO on PCTel linmodems. I also infest a number of Linux-related mailing list, and occasionally, I have been spotted in the various comp.os.linux.* newsgroups. I'm also actively involved in my local LUG activies.

I also try to write Linux advocacy articles on magazines, journals, etc, whenever possible. I am also interested in Linux localisation and internationalisation.

When I'm not Linuxing, I usually design websites, and code in PHP. I am an editor in dmoz.org and open-site.org. I also happen to be the admin for a human rights and environmental issues related site at www.peacefulaction.org/, and the webmaster for my LUG www.ilug-cal.org.

I recognise that there's a life outside computers, and when I'm not poking my keyboard, I usually spend some time with my cat, or prepare for my exams, or read books. And if you are interested, I'm also a member of Mensa International
