Tux Machines (TM)-specific
I apologize to the folks that come to tuxmachines looking for the latest in linux and open source news and reviews for not updating the site the passed coupla days. I've been sicker than I've ever been in my life.
If anyone noticed the site not being updated today it was due to a hardware failure. I've been getting warning signs from my motherboard for a while and it finally gave up the ghost today.
Almost all men experience anxiety about the size or appearance of their distro
at some time. For most men, these feelings will pass but, for others, they
can be persistent and disabling. A man's concern about his small distro can
lead to avoidance of lan parties, coffee shops and other activities where
other men might see his small desktop distro.
Ubuntu Restaurant and Yoga Studio is on track to open in mid-August on Main Street. According to a press release, ubuntu means “humanity toward others.”
I'm so so sorry for the downtime folks. We had a storm roll in last night. A tree blew over onto a powerline and ripped the whole meter box right off the back of my house.
I was anxious to test the new Linux Mint release in hopes that wireless might be working, but alas, I spent the better part of 4 days downloading in vain.
Opps! Changing teaser/excerpt module changed a few things. And I'm not up to going back for two months of posts to adjust.
On Oct 24,2003 a build server became self-aware and named himself Texstar and began building rpm pacakages and creating iso's called PCLinuxOS. Other servers became self aware ocilent1, sal server, thac, ivan, davecs, the darb and others and the whole thing became known as the devnet. One goal, one mission... to create the best linux desktop in the world.

Lord knows I appreciate all the 'news submissions' I can get. In fact, I've often thought of asking around for a 'Number One' to help me run the site in that area. But I have a few notes for those submitting, especially if you've noticed your submission not published.
Here are some snapshots of PCLinuxOS' Texstar on vacation in New York City last weekend. He says he's having fun and is glad we ain't there!
Actually, he said,
Well, I guess everything is about ready, except for a few minor glitches. I haven't looked at possible reasons why the gallery rss feed broke, but it's due for an upgrade so I'm not really concerned about that.
As noted in a comment of the last post we now have mail. I gave up on sendmail and opted for postfix which was really easy to set up.
Well, I guess we'll go with this debian install. I still haven't worked out all the kinks yet cuz my gran'babies came over today and I didn't get a chance to work on things. I took the opportunity to upgrade drupal as you may have noticed too, and it was a much easier upgrade this time.
Well, we have the server up and running on the new install. Some things still aren't functioning properly, but the site is up. We are still ironing out the glitches, so there will still be periods in which we are offline.
