Re: [vox-tech] Re: [vox-tech]Talks, mentoring, etc... was Touble(sic) with Printer Set-up (long)



I have an interest in mentoring both to mentor and be mentored. I would be 
willing to take on some responsibilities for this IF their is interest from 
the group.

My questions would be:
1	Who is interested.
2	When would you like to meet.
3	Would we want to set up interest paths (just an idea) like Perl, bash, vi, 
C, C++, Administrator tasks, etc. This would allow a person to Mentor in an 
area that they are confident in and be mentored in a area that they want to 
improve.
4	What are the limits. If I were to mentor someone, I know that they would be 
calling on me frequently for help and I would meet with them to go over 
questions, but there has to be a limit.
5	Once you have been menotred you should be expected to mentor another. If 
your interest is in LINUX/UNIX Administration once you have a grasp of 
Administration you should be able to mentor another this also has the benefit 
of helping you to learn more. If you have ever had an opportunity to teach a 
subject you will find that you will know it better becouse of the opportunity 
of teaching it.
