Happy New Year!

Here's hoping that all your links are good ones. Your site is one I come to every day.

Maybe vonskippy will contribute a negative amount.

Good Job Dumbass, I'm sure srlinuxx appreciates you pissing off future donations.

re: dumbass

I was trying to figure out what exactly he meant. I figured it had some connection to your comments which some may characterize as "negative."

Vonskippy has done a lot for tuxmachines. Many of you know that he provided the server (with a spare mobo) that our site runs on, but he also sent me a new monitor and harddrive for my desktop a few months ago when mine went out. So, Vonskippy has been a good friend to us.

I'll take this opportunity to thank those that did send in a donation in response to Poodle's request. They are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Someone's a little touchy. Looks like I hit a nerve.

Happy Belated Birthday

Happy Belated Birthday, Susan! I know a couple people born on the 31st, I've always considered them special/lucky for it. Let's hope that always holds true for you!

wow

I know I don't agree with Von Skippy on everything. Where's the fun in that?

I have seen him post interesting opinions and include information to back up his opinions.

That in itself is a meaningful contribution to any forum or interactive site.

Personally, I don't think it would "feel' like TuxMachines without him.

Just my two cent.

re: wow

Then there's the priceless gift of laugher that he (Vonskippy) and Poodles (and sometimes others) have provided.

Sometimes those little jewels of silliness (and/or sarcasm) come at the most opportune times for me.

You got that right!

Thanks to everyone who donated a little something

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who stuck a few dollars in srlinuxx's g-string this year and to those who have contributed hardware to keep this wonderful news site up and running.

    Basically, “open source enablement" seems to be about teaching customers how to embrace open source principles, both in terms of internal processes as well as external communities and ecosystems.

  • Announcing the open source release of MORI, from Chalkbeat
    In 2014, Chalkbeat developed and started using a WordPress plugin for tracking impact. We called it MORI — Measures of Our Reporting’s Influence. As we wrote then, MORI grew out of one of our key beliefs: Journalists can make a difference, but the ability to measure the difference we make can multiply our impact over time. If we can document how, why, when, and where we made a difference, we are more likely to repeat our success. The quantitative data we track in MORI lets us see the big picture of how our work affects the world, beyond raw readership analytics; the qualitative narrative we record helps us tell the story. Our editorial teams can put important impacts in the hands of our fundraising team and others to turn around and share with the broader education community.
  • ODL: Open Source Hastens Software Usability
    Open Daylight Summit -- Open source is connecting users and developers more intimately, and that's a good thing, OpenDaylight Executive Director Neela Jacques said here today. In kicking off the OpenDaylight Summit, Jacques said the ability of users and developers to work side-by-side is evolving, and helping drive the faster pace at which open source can bring solutions to the industry. "Users can sit next to the developers of the code they use, and the interaction doesn't go one way," he said. "The real difference is the way users interact with developers. This is why we are able to get production-grade solutions so much faster than you ever would in proprietary world."
