ABOUT_ME="I've been a programmer for quite a while (started when I was eleven with Lua scripting). I also have a bit of experience with server setup and management as I run my own server off of an old RaspberryPi Model-B (Local Backup, Web Server, Etc.), but I don't do anything too fancy. I tend to know a few quirks and fixes of the server world though, so feel free to ask if you have questions!"
Pro-Tip: Don't disable the root account before making another account... you'll get locked out. Not fun.
Pro-Tip #2: Do what I did and modify the root account so the only way to access it (besides sudo) is to physically plug a special USB drive with the password on it. Useful for account recovery.
