Filed under
News

Yesterday, following a mostly successful migration (there are still some impending fixes to .htaccess), slight changes were applied. For regular readers of the site, here they are summarised:

  • The menu bar (horizontal) has been augmented somewhat
  • Some site pages (static) were improved
  • Some sidebar contents were abbreviated, RSS feeds made easier to find
  • Twitter account tidied up a bit
  • Linux Monthly Screenshots updated
  • The new Web host is endorsed

Any feedback you may have would be taken seriously, so feel free to shout at us any time of the day.

Sadly, spammers continue to run scripts that attempt to create new user accounts and spam the site. If you want a site account created, then please get in touch and we'll do this manually.

Thanks for choosing Tux Machines for your news and information gathering. We do our best to separate important stories from dross.

Thank you

  • SMS based Cosmos Browser for the developing countries
    Browsing the internet has different meaning to different people. While to some the web is a source of entertainment, to others it is a valuable and source of learning. Sadly enough, the internet is not widely available and easily affordable everywhere in the globe. Slow network speed is another problem. Developer Stefan Aleksic of ColdSauce tries to find a solution in an SMS (text) based browser for the third world countries which are yet to see the internet as we know it. He has named it the Cosmos Browser. If you ever used elinks on Linux, you know how efficient and low-bandwidth text only browsing can be. Of course, it is not meant for visiting a website for downloading wallpapers, but it is more than sufficient if you want to read some information from the web. Cosmos will work on text and will not need any data plan or WiFi.
