fair warning - going once....

Filed under
Site News

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!!!

Ubuntu-Based ExTiX OS Updated for Intel Compute Sticks with Improved Installer

GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton announced this past weekend the release of an updated build of his Ubuntu-based ExTiX Linux distribution for Intel Compute Stick devices. Last month, we reported on the initial availability of a port of the ExTiX operating system for Intel Compute Sticks, boasting the lightweight and modern LXQt 0.10.0 desktop environment and powered by the latest Linux 4.8 kernel, tweaked by Arne Exton for Intel Atom processors. And now, ExTiX Build 161203 is out as a drop-in replacement for Build 161119, bringing a much-improved Ubiquity graphics installer that should no longer crash, as several users who attempted to install the Ubuntu-based GNU/Linux distro on their Intel Compute Stick devices reported.
