Main interest is the use of Linux as a free alternative to Microsoft.
I teach basic computing in a community environment.
Student are mainly over 50, with little or no computing experience, and receive basic tutoring in the use of word processors, spreadsheets, and the internet.
Some also learn a bit about image processing - downloading and manipulating digital camera images.
I place a strong emphasis on open source software (OpenOffice, Firefox, Thunderbird, The Gimp), and toss in the concept that there is more than just Microsoft out there (remember CPM, Wordstar ?).
I also restore and ride motorcycles and sidecars, and play very good Croquet.
