Sold! (tentatively)

Filed under
Site News

I guess tuxmachines.org has been sold for $1000. I know it's kinda low, but times have changed and the new owner plans to carry on the tuxmachines tradition.

I suppose that's all I should say for now until the deal is written in stone.

Thanks everyone for everything: all the visits, all the jokes, comments, and donations. But more on that later as well.

hi

what happened? is the new owner running the website now?

re: hi

Um, not quite yet, but the deal is done. The new owner has sent payment and I was gonna put up another post when it cleared and I handed over the reins. I expect payment to clear before the end of the week. At that time, I'll introduce him and hand it over. Until then, it's still me, Susan.

Oh, what happened? I just noticed that hits were falling, so, I updated the site and thought I'd work on it until the very end because I didn't want {new owner} to lose too many users. Besides, it's hard to adjust to not posting news. I keep seeing all these cool links...

thank you

You've done an excellent job with tuxmachines over the years, thank you for providing it to us all.

re:hi

I do hope you will still be at least involved Smile maybe post stuff once in a while Tongue

I am starting today, but it's likely that news aggregation will properly start next week.
