An uninteresting thing…..
Fedora – Getting Help [IRC]
I’m taking this posts details from here so if you don’t want to read this post, click the link instead. People are also asking my why I’m just posting content that’s already available on the Fedora Project site. The answer is simple, people don’t know it’s there. My friends who read my posts will now know that a page like this exists and can go read it, which in turn will lead onto other pages, I’m just trying to get pages viewed.
