fscking Drupal Man!

I pull in the rss feed from drupal.org, mainly to be sure to get security updates asap. Well this morning they had this as their opening paragraph:

With 4.7 nearing completition, it has been decided that for the next version we should look for another language as PHP is now blocks our growing. As you will read in the newsletter, we have found many very obscure language obstacles. We worked around them, but this can not go on. Also, in the IRC development channel, it was said for a long time that Drupal will be rewritten in Haskell, so that was a primary option.

tuxmachines' new rig

As many of you know, my old AMD 2800+ system popped a vessel approximately two weeks ago and a friend suggested I post a request for donations to help fund the purchase of new equipment. The response was great and we raised over 200 USD in 3 days. I purchased an Asus A8V motherboard, AMD 64 3700+ and 1 gig of Kingston HyperX DDR400 memory for a final pricetag with shipping of $439.

SUSE 10.1 Beta NINE?

OMG, I see a beta 9 directory showing up on mirrors around the world. Does this mean yet another beta instead of a release candidate? What does this mean for the release schedule?

We have recently suffered the loss of our linux review test system. If you'd like to donate towards the purchase of new equipment, please click the Paypal Donation button located in the right hand column of our site. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Quake3 on BIIIG Screen

It's amazing how much more fun games are when you can play them on really large, high-resolution screens. Our lab also has a 24 monitor display wall, and as you can see from the pictures below, I got Quake 3 running on it. Full Story.

Tuxmachines: 4th quarter Report

Site News

February 4th was Tuxmachines official one year anniversary. Although I put a site up and added content 6 months prior, it was static and unknown. A year ago I began putting a little content in this little cms called Drupal and we've been growing every since. Tuxmachines continued to showed some growth early part of the quarter, but perhaps has now leveled off some.

Oh man, I was getting the yen to play gltron and went to the site to check out the latest and greatest on it when I saw this post:

Gltron on the 'big screen'. "Pablo Veramendi got GLtron running across 12 monitors. Amazing."

daaaaaang! 12 monitors! I wish he had posted his howto! Big Grin

Tuxmachines' 3rd quarter report

Filed under
Site News

Well, another 3 months has gone by bringing my official time online to 9 months. Boy how time flies. The big news this quarter was the hardware upgrade. I wonder if anyone noticed the site performing a bit better. We're still limited by my bellsouth business dsl pipe, but the server is functioning much snappier now.

Gentoo User's Response to Slacker who tried Gentoo

This is a gentoo user's answer to Mr. Slacker Tries His Hand at Gentoo. If you missed the story on OSNews on the Slacker Tries His Hand at Gentoo, you really must read it. It's a hilarios account of an experienced linux user's first try at gettting a Gentoo system all set up for work or play. At first I was gonna make a cute witty comment to the story and be on my way, but instead it turned into an article. I guess as I read his story I found I had something to say at about every experience he shared.

My Top 5 Distro Picks

Seems a hot topic for internet journalists in the technology field is "which distro should you try." As you might know, I download and check out a few from time to time. I started testing Linux back when there were only a few players in the field. I'm quite fortunate for my site's sake this is no longer the case. In fact, there are so many these days, what's a newbie to do?

Ultima Linux: Ultimate Disappointment

Filed under
Reviews

I'm not sure this can be classified as much a review as a rant. This is why I'll file this as a blog instead of a news/review. I love slackware, I've stated that numerous times. In fact one of my first reviews here at Tuxmachines was on slackware. So why is it that more times than not when someone goes to try and "improve" upon slackware, it just makes a mess.

This second quarter has been very exciting for me. The hits have continued to grow each month and we've had some great community contributions in the forms of articles and comments. Meanies still plague the site, but I've had a wonderful time reviewing distros and posting news links.

The windows from which President John F Kennedy is said to have been assassinated are to go up for auction in the United States, it emerged today. Tho the Secret Service reports that everything including the kitchen sink was confiscated from that room at the time of the assassination. There's just no end to what some folks'll do to make a buck.

  • Canonical, Snappy and the marketing value of collaboration
    Canonical implies it is collaborating with nearly every major Linux distro for its Snappy project. It is not. And what could have been a marketing win for it is now a loss.
  • How to install MongoDB community edition on Ubuntu Linux
    MongoDB is a NoSQL database that avoids the traditional structure of relational databases in favor of document-oriented JSON-like objects. What this translates to is the integration between application and data is faster and easier. If that's not enough, consider this: MongoDB is one the databases preferred by big data and large enterprise companies, including Adobe, Craigslist, eBay, FIFA, Foursquare, and LinkedIn.
  • No WhatsApp, but fixes set to come for Ubuntu Phone
    Users of the Ubuntu Phone will have to get used to the fact that popular Android apps like WhatsApp are unlikely to be made available for the platform, at least not in in the short term. Facebook owns WhatsApp and the communications app now has more than a billion users.
  • Ubuntu Developers Discuss Again About Dropping Support For 32-bit x86
    Ubuntu developers are once again pondering the possibility of dropping support for i386 (32-bit x86) as installation media for their Linux distribution. The matter of dropping Ubuntu i386 ISOs has been brought up many times the past few years, but ultimately it's kept getting pushed back for users still running Ubuntu Linux on old hardware and other reasons. Dropping Ubuntu for i386 keeps getting brought up namely for the installer media rather than the i386 package archive itself.

Android Apps Turn Chromebooks Into Macbook Killers

  • Android Apps Turn Chromebooks Into Macbook Killers
    When Chromebooks launched in the summer of 2011, they seemed destined to fail, much like the underpowered, internet-dependent netbooks that came before them. But in the five years since, Chromebooks have defied expectations, becoming the most used device in US classrooms and even outselling Macs for the first time this year. Still, people complain about their inability to run useful software, but that’s all about to change.
