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!!!
