Tux Machines (TM)-specific
Well from the last thing I wrote in here somewhere (being new means you have no idea where things are), things have changed on the laptop front. After writing some good things about Ubuntu I stumbled across some articles on Suse floating around the 'net and up pops the thought, "perhaps I didn't give it a proper go". Dangerous thought, very dangerous.
New to Linux, just under 30 days of true "research and Development"......and I have found a Dream come true...

Well,today is jun,17... my name is Marcio Alencar, i study Science Computers at UFAM(Federal University of Amazon) and that's my first post here in tuxmachines.org...i don't have so much things to talk...Sorry about my "English", i'm brazilian and i beggining my curse...it's just praticle...
Although The Break-up is laced with wit and charm throughout, the theme and ultimate outcome make it not the best flick to take a date. Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston star.
I, along with most of the country, enjoyed the new Disney/Pixar release of the summer. The movie was great, but the commericalization and over-saturation are lowering the "cute" factor for me.
The new remake of The Omen that hit theaters last weekend was a great disappointment. It lacked the suspense and biting "horror" found in the original.
When you hear about spam in the news, they're always talking about email spam... but of late, the spammers are taking a different tack, and it seems that they're not giving up without a fight.
Hey, slashdot is looking a bit better these days. How long has this new look been going on? Shows how often I actually go there.
Well, just a short sweet post. That other server was finally brought back online at 8:pm my time after being down since 3:ish am. That's almost 17 hours. They did not answer my email this time, but the first time it happened, they answered my email within 90 minutes and had the site back up shortly after that.
I took the opportunity to test upgrading drupal to 4.7 then 4.7.1 and it was much easier than the upgrade from 4.5.8 to 4.6.6 (now 4.6.7). So you know what that means! Yep, I'm gonna be bring tuxmachines down sometime in the near future, probably tonight whiles traffic is low, and do the upgrade. It really didn't take long to get the basic functionality back, so we won't be down long.
Well, despite my hesitation, it looks like moving to a new host from my home based server might be a good idea. I received less than a 100 votes, but most said it was somewhat to quite a bit faster with a few stating about the same. No one reports slower response time.
If you've noticed the lack of reviews and slower than usual performance of tuxmachines, there is a good reason. I'm working on an off-site hosting vps in hopes of moving tuxmachines to a faster server and/or larger pipe.
