Gotta Spare Monitor?

Does anyone have an old working monitor lying around waiting to be taken to the dump or given away?

Tuxmachines could use a couple/few good displays. Mine started failing a while back and now most of them are shot.

I know it's not exactly cheap to ship old CRTs, but I don't mind them if you can swing it. In fact, I think I still prefer their "picture" to that of newer LCDs. But LCDs are great too.

If you have a good working monitor or two that you could donate to the cause and get listed on the Wall of Appreciation, please email me at tuxmachines at gmail for a shipping address.

Thank you so much,
Susan

Update: Tuxmachines could use a coupla new DVD burners and SATA hard drives as well.

Update 2: As shipping and such can sometimes be costly, if you'd rather send a donation specifically for hardware, you may do so and send a note specifying that it's for hardware:

Customize your Linux desktop with the Trinity Desktop Environment

When KDE 4 was released in 2008, KDE 3 went into support mode until support was dropped entirely. That's the usual lifecycle of software, desktops included, but the KDE 3 fanbase wasn't universally pleased with KDE 4, and some of them decided a fork was in order. Some of them formed a new project with the mission of preserving the look and feel of KDE 3, starting from KDE 3.5.10 (the last official release in the 3.x series), and then forking Qt 3 into TQt to keep the underlying technology updated. Today, the Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE) delivers a traditional desktop environment that looks and feels essentially the same as KDE 3 did 10-plus years ago. Read more

Organizing open source for cities

Cities and municipalities around the world are facing serious problems that are affecting citizens' safety and access to government services. Take Baltimore, for example, the home of Mosslabs.io and its founder/organizer Jacob Green, which experienced a ransomware attack that shut down the city's digital services for most of the summer, preventing people from buying real estate and doing other everyday business with the local government.
