About

Who on Earth is behind this website?

I am Kyle Terrien, a fellow geek who enjoys Linux/Unix systems. In various circles, I am known as “klipkyle”. I am an active member of the Orange County Linux User Group, where I enjoy networking with others and helping solve problems.

In my free time, I enjoy reading everything I can get my hands on (including reference manuals) and going out swing dancing.

I can be reached via several channels:

My last name is pronounced TEAR-ee-un (emphasis on the first syllable). However, if you mess up I will not be offended. I am used to hearing several pronunciations and respond to all of them.

The name “Terrien” is French in origin. Although I do not speak French, I am told by French speakers that it means “from the earth.” One of my ancestors must have been a farmer.
