Happy New Year!

Here's hoping that all your links are good ones. Your site is one I come to every day.

Maybe vonskippy will contribute a negative amount.

Good Job Dumbass, I'm sure srlinuxx appreciates you pissing off future donations.

re: dumbass

I was trying to figure out what exactly he meant. I figured it had some connection to your comments which some may characterize as "negative."

Vonskippy has done a lot for tuxmachines. Many of you know that he provided the server (with a spare mobo) that our site runs on, but he also sent me a new monitor and harddrive for my desktop a few months ago when mine went out. So, Vonskippy has been a good friend to us.

I'll take this opportunity to thank those that did send in a donation in response to Poodle's request. They are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Someone's a little touchy. Looks like I hit a nerve.

Happy Belated Birthday

Happy Belated Birthday, Susan! I know a couple people born on the 31st, I've always considered them special/lucky for it. Let's hope that always holds true for you!

wow

I know I don't agree with Von Skippy on everything. Where's the fun in that?

I have seen him post interesting opinions and include information to back up his opinions.

That in itself is a meaningful contribution to any forum or interactive site.

Personally, I don't think it would "feel' like TuxMachines without him.

Just my two cent.

re: wow

Then there's the priceless gift of laugher that he (Vonskippy) and Poodles (and sometimes others) have provided.

Sometimes those little jewels of silliness (and/or sarcasm) come at the most opportune times for me.

You got that right!

Thanks to everyone who donated a little something

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who stuck a few dollars in srlinuxx's g-string this year and to those who have contributed hardware to keep this wonderful news site up and running.

Nintendo Switch hack + Dolphin Emulator could bring GameCube and Wii game support

This week security researchers released details about a vulnerability affecting NVIDIA Tegra X1 processors that makes it possible to bypass secure boot and run unverified code on some devices… including every Nintendo Switch game console that’s shipped to date. Among other things, this opens the door for running modified versions of Nintendo’s firmware, or alternate operating systems such as a GNU/Linux distribution. And if you can run Linux… you can also run Linux applications. Now it looks like one of those applications could be the Dolphin emulator, which lets you play Nintendo GameCube and Wii games on a computer or other supported devices. Read more

Openwashing Leftovers

Linux Foundation: New Members, Cloud Foundry, and Embedded Linux Conference + OpenIoT Summit

  • 41 Organizations Join The Linux Foundation to Support Open Source Communities With Infrastructure and Resources
    The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, announced the addition of 28 Silver members and 13 Associate members. Linux Foundation members help support development of the shared technology resources, while accelerating their own innovation through open source leadership and participation. Linux Foundation member contributions help provide the infrastructure and resources that enable the world's largest open collaboration communities.
  • Cloud Foundry for Developers: Architecture
    Back in the olden days, provisioning and managing IT stacks was complex, time-consuming, and error-prone. Getting the resources to do your job could take weeks or months. Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) was the first major step in automating IT stacks, and introduced the self-service provisioning and configuration model. VMware and Amazon were among the largest early developers and service providers. Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) adds the layer to IaaS that provides application development and management. Cloud Foundry is for building Platform as a Service (PaaS) projects, which bundle servers, networks, storage, operating systems, middleware, databases, and development tools into scalable, centrally-managed hardware and software stacks. That is a lot of work to do manually, so it takes a lot of software to automate it.
  • Jonathan Corbet on Linux Kernel Contributions, Community, and Core Needs
    At the recent Embedded Linux Conference + OpenIoT Summit, I sat down with Jonathan Corbet, the founder and editor-in-chief of LWN to discuss a wide range of topics, including the annual Linux kernel report. The annual Linux Kernel Development Report, released by The Linux Foundation is the evolution of work Corbet and Greg Kroah-Hartman had been doing independently for years. The goal of the report is to document various facets of kernel development, such as who is doing the work, what is the pace of the work, and which companies are supporting the work.
