Dear Admin of Tuxmachines,

I would just like to request that you could maybe link to the real authors of articles.
"Distro Review - Xubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex"

It appears that the owner of http://linuxblogonline.org/ is just copying and pasting other people's articles without having the common courtesy of providing a link back to the original.

I was quite surprised to see that my article appeared on TuxMachines in the first place, but when I saw that the link was to another site, I thought i'd post.

To be honest, anybody who writes an article will gladly let you copy and paste it, but at least give the author some credit via a link or trackback.

I have seen many sites such as http://linuxblogonline.org/ which get a collection of articles which they claim as their own, and once they have generated enough traffic, start filling the site with google adsense adverts.

Whatsmore he is actually including images which are hosted on my server as well. Once in a while doesn't matter, but article thieves get their site on Digg, the rest of us pay for their image bandwidth.

A simple Google of the article title would have led you to the original site.

Thanks in advance.

You missed a big opportunity for some fun there.

No problem at all Susan, I

No problem at all Susan,

I am a regular visitor to TuxMachines, and was rather surprised at the link. I have no problem at all with any of my articles being used at all, but a link back is basic courtesy, something which the owner of linuxblogonline seems to have forgotten. As it happens I have deleted a lot of out-of-date articles now anyway, so only the recent reviews and howto's remain on the front page at LxH.

I have often posted howto guides and articles by other authors both on Dreamlnux Forums and The Linux-Hardcore, but always with proper recognition for the original owner.

Anyway, thanks for the quick reply, and keep up the good work, TuxMachines is a truly great site.

re: copied articles

I'm sure am sorry about that. I try to avoid that happening, but sometimes my memory and/or search fail me. So, I always appreciate it when someone informs me of articles and sites that steal others' work. Nothing irritates more than content thieves. I've had it happen to my work before too.

As it turns out, I had linked to your original article when it first came out and I changed the link in the other as well.

Again, I apologize and I will try to remember that http://linuxblogonline.org/ is a content thief. Feel free to remind me if needed.

Sincerely,
Susan

What happens if pictures get moved by mistake?

Well, accidents can happen Wink

Packet radio lives on through open source software

Packet radio is an amateur radio technology from the early 1980s that sends data between computers. Linux has natively supported the packet radio protocol, more formally known as AX.25, since 1993. Despite its age, amateur radio operators continue to use and develop packet radio today. A Linux packet station can be used for mail, chat, and TCP/IP. It also has some unique capabilities, such as tracking the positions of nearby stations or sending short messages via the International Space Station (ISS). Read more

Linux 4.14-rc2

I'm back to my usual Sunday release schedule, and rc2 is out there in all the normal places. This was a fairly usual rc2, with a very quiet beginning of the week, and then most changes came in on Friday afternoon and Saturday (with the last few ones showing up Sunday morning). Normally I tend to dislike how that pushes most of my work into the weekend, but this time I took advantage of it, spending the quiet part of last week diving instead. Anyway, the only unusual thing worth noting here is that the security subsystem pull request that came in during the merge window got rejected due to problems, and so rc2 ends up with most of that security pull having been merged in independent pieces instead.

Manjaro Linux Phasing out i686 (32bit) Support

In a not very surprising move by the Manjaro Linux developers, a blog post was made by Philip, the Lead Developer of the popular distribution based off Arch Linux, On Sept. 23 that reveals that 32-bit support will be phased out. In his announcement, Philip says, “Due to the decreasing popularity of i686 among the developers and the community, we have decided to phase out the support of this architecture. The decision means that v17.0.3 ISO will be the last that allows to install 32 bit Manjaro Linux. September and October will be our deprecation period, during which i686 will be still receiving upgraded packages. Starting from November 2017, packaging will no longer require that from maintainers, effectively making i686 unsupported.” Read more

Korora 26 'Bloat' Fedora-based Linux distro available for download -- now 64-bit only

Fedora is my favorite Linux distribution, but I don't always use it. Sometimes I opt for an operating system that is based on it depending on my needs at the moment. Called "Korora," it adds tweaks, repositories, codecs, and packages that aren't found in the normal Fedora operating system. As a result, Korora deviates from Red Hat's strict FOSS focus -- one of the most endearing things about Fedora. While you can add all of these things to Fedora manually, Korora can save you time by doing the work for you. Read more
