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.

Ubuntu-Based ExTiX OS Updated for Intel Compute Sticks with Improved Installer

GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton announced this past weekend the release of an updated build of his Ubuntu-based ExTiX Linux distribution for Intel Compute Stick devices. Last month, we reported on the initial availability of a port of the ExTiX operating system for Intel Compute Sticks, boasting the lightweight and modern LXQt 0.10.0 desktop environment and powered by the latest Linux 4.8 kernel, tweaked by Arne Exton for Intel Atom processors. And now, ExTiX Build 161203 is out as a drop-in replacement for Build 161119, bringing a much-improved Ubiquity graphics installer that should no longer crash, as several users who attempted to install the Ubuntu-based GNU/Linux distro on their Intel Compute Stick devices reported.
