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!!!

New Arduino boards include first FPGA model

Arduino launched a “MKR Vidor 4000” board with a SAMA21 MCU and Cyclone 10 FPGA, as well as an “Uno WiFi Rev 2” with an ATmega4809 MCU. Both boards have a crypto chip and ESP32-based WiFi module. In conjunction with this weekend’s Maker Faire Bay Area, Arduino launched two Arduino boards that are due to ship at the end of June.

DragonFlyBSD 5.3 Works Towards Performance Improvements

Given that DragonFlyBSD recently landed some SMP performance improvements and other performance optimizations in its kernel for 5.3-DEVELOPMENT but as well finished tidying up its Spectre mitigation, this weekend I spent some time running some benchmarks on DragonFlyBSD 5.2 and 5.3-DEVELOPMENT to see how the performance has shifted for an Intel Xeon system.
