fair warning - going once....

Well, I think I'm going to accept one of the two $1000 bids received, unless anyone else wants to bid...

The last 8 or 9 years at tuxmachines.org has been my lifeline. I truly believe my starting this website gave me a leg up or even facilitated my latest career attempts - writing about Linux and Open Source Software. I haven't got rich, but I got by and some times better than others. But it's also been a lot of work, rewarding, but a lot of work.

It was a lot of work during a really hectic period in my personal life. I've been single for over 20 years and much of that I was trying to date and find mr. right. I never did (I thought). Later on and during most of time in Linux, I struggled with several different illnesses. But I seemed to have pulled through most of all that.

This year has been great for me in so many ways. I guess I can tell yaw. My second ex-husband started coming around again regularly last Spring and we've ended up back together. I can't believe it, but I'm in love with him again (still). I'm moving back in with him in the next few weeks and we're getting re-married this coming Spring. But I've had some lingering symptoms from my illnesses and I'm tired a lot.

I can't really self-host my own site out in the boonies where {significant other} lives and I've never been able to hand over control to a hosting company. I have a lot of work to do get moved and the new house all purty and stuff. I still need / want to work for ostatic.com and it's a lot of work being someone's wife (as I recall).

So, anywho, if I don't get any more bids today, I'll let it go for $1000.

Fair warning, going once....

Congratulations Susan, and best wishes of course. Surely you have thought it all through, it's a big step moving together again and letting this baby go!
So, I hope it all goes well and don't let the naysayers, if there are any (like my dark side), ruin it for you. Good luck!!!

diff -u: What's New in Kernel Development

Boot times can become slow on systems with many CPUs, partly because of the time it takes to crank up all the RAM chips. Mel Gorman recently submitted some patches to start up RAM chips in parallel instead of one after the other. One of the main problems with trying to implement such a feature—and one of the main reasons such patches haven't made it into the kernel before—is the need to avoid slowing things down for smaller systems.

This goes for the Romanian Group for the Development of Gentoo-Derivative Technologies too. Gentoo is an operating system based on Linux or FreeBSD, which can be automatically optimized or personalized for almost any application or need. Last week the Cluj-based team launched in Bucharest and Cluj two PC operating systems that are one hundred per cent Romanian, which could be used by regular users or within public administration, the education system or defence institutions.
