Techgage's 5th Birthday Contest

Filed under
Web

Techgage has just turned five, so what better reason to celebrate? To help kill two birds with one stone, we're looking to YOU for input on what we're doing right, and what you want to see more of (or improve). As a thanks for taking our site survey, you'll be entered to have a chance at winning our custom-built gaming PC, valued at $4,200!

On March 1, 2005, a hopeful orange and blue tech site came out of the woodwork with the goal of keeping consumers well-informed with its detailed and well-written content. As it stands today, a full five years later, we heartily believe we've been keeping on track with that goal, and we hope that you'd agree.

To help celebrate our birthday and usher in the next era of Techgage, we're holding an on-site survey where you can provide us with valuable feedback to help us continue building the best site possible. We want to know what you like most about Techgage, any changes you’d make, how we can improve and what keeps you coming back for more!

Our survey consists of 20 or so questions and will take between 3 - 5 minutes to complete. For your time and effort, you'll be entered into our drawing for a sweet gaming PC, built right in our lab!

It was during one such hackathon that the idea for ‘I install’ was put forward by the students of LBS College of Engineering, Kasaragod. A GNU/Linux installation camp, the event aims to promote the idea of taking control over the technology that you use. Those students who received training at the hackathon will be part of ‘I install’ where they impart their learning to other students. Read more

The Linux Kernel Is Still Rectifying The Year 2038 Problem

The Linux kernel is still working to rectify the Year 2038 problem whereby the time values stored as signed 32-bit integers will wrap around. If you somehow are not familiar with the Year 2038 "Y2038" problem, you can learn more via Wikipedia. The Linux kernel has been receiving fixes and workarounds for years now through many Y2038 commits to work through the many different areas of the kernel that are relying upon 32-bit signed ints for storing time values. With Linux 4.15, this work has continued. Read more
