Here’s a wee bit about me.
Firstly about the name TerminalAddict. Many moons ago I was in a chat room (#musb on freednode) chatting with a bloke called DragonMage. DragonMage is a member of http://mandrivausers.org
Well I was helping some people with Mandrake (or some other distro, I can’t remember) and all my help was telling them to open a command line interface (CLI) which is also called a terminal, so soon enough DragonMage started saying I was addicted to the terminal
The name developed from there, and I thought it was very appropriate for the following reasons
- I use a terminal for everything
- I am a was smoker, which could be terminal, and I am was addicted
- I ride motorcycles, which could be terminal, and I am addicted
- Many of my other hobbies / habits could be described the same way
So I stuck with the name, also it wasn’t being used anywhere, by anyone else, which is pretty amazing in this day and age.
