TM Donation Drive

Filed under
Site News

We haven't had a donation drive since 2011 and now is a good time. As some of you know, I recently lost one of my gigs and I've yet to replace that income. I'm feeling much better these days and have tried to ramp up my work around here. If you'd like to help keep TM coming to you, please see my donation page for details how to help.

Some of you know that I was very ill most of 2012, it started around Thanksgiving 2011 and lasted until about Christmas 2012. I'm sure many of you noticed how little I could work that year. ...Not just here, but all my jobs suffered. I almost lost everything.

But I made it through the worst of it (with just some lingering effects still) and was actually beginning to see daylight again when I got "downsized" from my magazine column job. So, if you could make a donation to help keep the lights and cable on during this period, we'd appreciate it immensely. Tuxmachines is self hosted in my soho. Be sure to look for your name on our Wall of Appreciation after you make your donation.

For those that can't send funds, could you please turn off your ad blockers for my site? I only have have google ads and a few discreet text ads here. My Google revenue has dropped so embarrassly low, that I can't even tell you. Please click on an ad if you see something you're interested in.

Oh, and if you hear of another Linux writing job, please drop me a line at srlinuxx at gmail dot com.

Linux 4.2 is out

So judging by how little happened this week, it wouldn't have been a mistake to release 4.2 last week after all, but hey, there's certainly a few fixes here, and it's not like delaying 4.2 for a week should have caused any problems either. So here it is, and the merge window for 4.3 is now open. I already have a few pending early pull requests, but as usual I'll start processing them tomorrow and give the release some time to actually sit. The shortlog from rc8 is tiny, and appended. The patch is pretty tiny too. Go get it, Linus Read more
