Sounds like a lot of fun. One of the cool parts about this list is seeing the different parts Christians play in the Linux community. I hadn't realized how deep your LXer involvement was. I know a good Christian guy who is highly involved in CPLUG (Central PA) which is a pretty active LUG if you are ever looking for something is that world.

Well, it's not entirely off-topic, but...

I just thought I would drop a note to share my adventures with LXer & CharLUG.

Since appointing myself as a FOSS advocate for the Christian community (since no one asked me to), I have somehow become deeply engaged with LXer, a rapidly growing Linux news site.  I started with no previous journalism experience and have stepped up, primarily through attrition, to become the Editor-in-Chief.  Almost as soon as I stepped into my new role, I was confronted with a protracted religious flame war in which I managed to earn a great deal of respect among LXer's core readers.  That may not seem like a big deal, but some acknowledged later having fears that I would impose my religious views on the community.
