Call for Help . . . the show, that is.

As many of you know, I've been doing a couple of shows a month on Call for Help (with Leo Laporte and company) talking about, wait for it, Linux. As I was prepping the segment for the next show I'm taping (taking place on Tuesday), I remembered something Leo said on air at my last taping. He specifically made a point of asking people if they would like to see more Linux content in general and to call with Linux questions -- the show is called "Call for Help", after all.

New server, at last!

Hurrah! It has finally happened. After what seems like forever, the new server is finally online.

About three weeks ago, I tried replacing my old Web server with something bigger, faster, and stronger (insert theme from Six Million Dollar Man here) but that quickly became a nightmare. After a great deal of head banging, I discovered that the BIOS was flaky when it came to supporting more than one network card. My new machine was crashing hard every few hours without any kind of message or warning . . . just plain dead.

Linux and the WFTL-LUG . . . truly international.

I run a mailing list called the WFTL-LUG. It is made up of readers, fans, and other Linux enthusiasts. On a whim, I decided to list the member e-mail addresses and look up any top level domain codes (.com, .br, .uk, etc) that I didn't immediately know.

The majority of members are from the United States with Canadian members being the second largest group. That said, we also have representative members from a number of contries around the world. Here's the list in no particular order (well, the US and Canada are first only because I mentioned them a second ago).

Mucking About, Part Deux

I obviously still can't shake this whole site redesign madness and I obviously haven't given up on content management software. So far, I've installed two such systems on my server. This site, running Drupal, is one of the options I'm considering. The second site exercise is this one running Mambo. Both have their pluses and minuses and neither is perfect but I'll likely settle on one at some point.
