Lord knows I appreciate all the 'news submissions' I can get. In fact, I've often thought of asking around for a 'Number One' to help me run the site in that area. But I have a few notes for those submitting, especially if you've noticed your submission not published.
Here are some snapshots of PCLinuxOS' Texstar on vacation in New York City last weekend. He says he's having fun and is glad we ain't there!
