Downtime - connectivity issues

Filed under
Site News

I guess you might have noticed we were offline today and the connection is still very spotty right now (will connect, but drops after a few seconds). There's a lineman supposed to come sometime tomorrow maybe, you know how that goes. I am sorry for the trouble and hope we'll be back up soon. Just keep trying. Don't forget about tuxmachines while we're down. Big Grin

Forget?

Damn, I need my dose of Linux drug few times a day Smile I hope you will solve the problem quickly...

Welcome Back

Glad to see Tuxmachines back up and fighting the good fight. Hope connection issues sorted real soon.

Good luck and keep up the great work.

Forget Tuxmachines?

Impossible! It's the first one listed in my drop down address bar. Smile

thanks!

Thanks everyone for the nice words. (Risking jinxing it) It looks like we are indeed back up. The cable guy said there was a bad outgoing transformer on the pole.

You really don't realize how long 24 hours can be until the internet goes down. Big Grin

But thank goodness it was outgoing - I really would have gone nuts if the tv had been out too!!! Big Grin

Re: thanks!

I too am glad you're back up. I had completed a blog post to Tuxmachines, and had to go back in later and resubmit it, as the first try ended up somewhere in etherspace.

Forget?

Maybe after a year of trying to connect. Seriously, besides LXer, this site is my MAIN FOSS new site. Thanks for all you do, Susan.

A soft push for the fairer sex

International Centre for Free and Open Source Software (ICFOSS), an autonomous institution under Government of Kerala and Society for Promotion of Alternative Computing and Employment (SPACE), an NGO promoting free software, have been conducting ‘Women Hackers,’ a project to bring more women into free software. The programme involves intensive residential workshops on college campuses. It was during one such hackathon that the idea for ‘I install’ was put forward by the students of LBS College of Engineering, Kasaragod. A GNU/Linux installation camp, the event aims to promote the idea of taking control over the technology that you use. Those students who received training at the hackathon will be part of ‘I install’ where they impart their learning to other students. Read more

The Linux Kernel Is Still Rectifying The Year 2038 Problem

The Linux kernel is still working to rectify the Year 2038 problem whereby the time values stored as signed 32-bit integers will wrap around. If you somehow are not familiar with the Year 2038 "Y2038" problem, you can learn more via Wikipedia. The Linux kernel has been receiving fixes and workarounds for years now through many Y2038 commits to work through the many different areas of the kernel that are relying upon 32-bit signed ints for storing time values. With Linux 4.15, this work has continued. Read more
