Hey, welcome to the list! Kelly has just turned an NT server into a
linux server, and will probably be asking questions about mail setup or
some other setup. He was asking questions about things I've never set
up, so I sent him here.
He's also a 3D animation style programmer, and can answer all your 3D
programming Q's, right down to quaternions.
