Hello Linux.com

Hello Friends,

I am Kunal and this is my first blog post at Linux.com.

My Wordpress blog:  http://bharatikunal.wordpress.com

 My Twitter Profile: http://twitter.com/kunalbharati

 

Will be posting more soon.

 Thanx

 

Congratulations and thanks....

...to all those who worked on Linux.com.    It was a lot of work, but what's there looks great!

 

 

We are off to a great start

 

Wow.  We are getting a new user on Linux.com every minute since we launched. My e-mail box is overflowing with great ideas about how to improve the site.   Of course the best way to make the site great is to have great people here and from the looks of things we are off to a solid start.   

For all of you LUGS and folks who created groups, make sure you use the "invite friends" function in the friends menu in your profile.   You can easily import your contacts using a variety of tools and help us make the Linux community even stronger.   

 My favorite quote of the day comes from Dirk Hohndel; "Linux.com - Facebook for geeks."   Said with true geek pride.  

 I look forward to hearing all about Linux news, events, and ideas from all over the world.   Thanks to everyone for helping the new Linux.com get off to a great start. 

 

 

Would any body be interested in a road trip to Linuxcon?

Linuxcon is just around the corner on September 21-23 in Portland.  

 If we can get enough people together in the Bay Area I was thinking of chartering a bus to take us from San Francisco to Portland and we could all split the cost.

 What say you all?  Linux road trip anyone?   

 

Linux.com challenge

Ok linux.com, you've been reborn for roughly 24 hours so I've got a monster challenge.  I challenge the linux.com community to solve the iPhone/linux sync problem without jailbreaking my phone.  There may be a monetary reward to someone for solving this challenge.  See below for my fine print regarding the rewared.  And nobody tell me it can't be done, we all know nothing is for certain when it comes to computers.  Heck, I'll even offer up one solution for someone to persue: start a petition to Apple to create iTunes for linux.  See was that hard?? So what are you waiting for, get to it!

 That is all.

 

not-so-fine print:  In this contest, I am the sole judge and jury, and reserve the right to revoke my contest at any time for any reason, even if a solution has been discovered.  And remember, I only said I MAY offer a reward. 

 

openSUSE Community Week for Japan

I will organize an IRC session in #opensuse-ja @Freenode today, 12:00 - 15:00 UTC (21:00 - 24:00 JST) as a part of openSUSE Community Week.

See the detail (in Japanese).

 

Now on Linux.com!

Well, it seems that the Linux Foundation made good on their promise, and have polished up good ol' Linux.com into something much more amazing than it previously was. I may or may not make this my primary blog. No ideas. Nothing. Anyways, I'm writing this from my lappy, as my desktop is rendering a video in KDEnlive about GNU/HURD. Oh, the irony. =P

Linux.com Is Killing Me

OK, so it's 1:51 AM EDT. I've been on and off this site for the past nine hours. I got absolutely nothing else done in my real life today. My cats have been hopping up on the desk a looking at me funny. They're wondering what the hell's the matter with me. Why haven't I gotten up from this desk in nine plus hours (other than for the bathroom breaks and coffee refills ;) ).

It's OK, though. I had a great time here today. I felt my way around the corridors and made a few posts in the forums. I uploaded some wallpapers to the Community --> Photos area. I joined a Group. I met some old friends; made some new ones. All in all... a good day. I haven't had this much fun at a site in a long while.

Here's looking forward to the coming days, months, years!

Until next time...

I am here.

I am happy to see this new website online.  I hope I can learn  and share something about Linux at here. 

I don't know wether here can support Asia characters.

I type some here. 非常高兴能够看到这个网站。

 

You've got 'intellisense' in my emacs!

You've got emacs in my 'intellisense'!

 Being a programmer type I drift towards the path of least resistence.  Non-programmer types are usually surprised to find out that doesn't mean never tackling complex things.  Quite the opposite, optimizing my workflow is a minor hobby of mine all its own.  It basically boils down to a simple equation: TimeToMasterTool(p) < TimeSavedInLongRun(q) = MasterTool(r)

 Emacs is definetly one of those tools.  The Go-game of editors, you can learn enough to start using it in an hour or two but it would take a lifetime to master it completely.
