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.

Debian and Ubuntu

  • Debian is a puzzle: difficult
    I myself recently had to use the Ubuntu installer in a laptop, and it didn’t seem that different to the Debian one: same steps and choices, like in every other OS installation.
  • Canonical: 2017 Will See a Mir 1.0 Release, Plans to Implement Vulkan Support
    Canonical, the company founded by Mark Shuttleworth to promote the popular Ubuntu Linux operating system everywhere around the world, has recently published the 'year in review' for their Mir display server technology. As most of you are aware, Canonical develops its own display server for Ubuntu, called Mir, which, in some ways, is similar to the X.Org Server and Wayland technologies. While Ubuntu on the desktop still uses X.Org Server's components, Mir is currently heavily tested for the Unity 8 user interface that Canonical plans on implementing by default for future releases of Ubuntu Linux, for desktops.

  • FOI: NHS Trusts are ransomware pin cushions [Ed: Windows]
    The FOI requests found that 87 per cent of attacks came via a networked NHS device and that 80 per cent were down to phished staffers. However, only a small proportion of the 100 or so Trusts responded to this part of the requests. "These results are far from surprising. Public sector organisations make a soft target for fraudsters because budget and resource shortages frequently leave hospitals short-changed when it comes to security basics like regular software patching," said Tony Rowan, Chief Security Consultant at SentinelOne. "The results highlight the fact that old school AV technology is powerless to halt virulent, mutating forms of malware like ransomware and a new more dynamic approach to endpoint protection is needed.
