    RE: Does New Mandriva 2011 (Hydrozen) make sense??
    This maybe have something with to do with the major changes in Gnome 3. Im not a user of Mandriva and I like Gnome 2.x a lot and I like to chose but I still think it a good move as the developers can put more focus on that desktop.

[/quote] So why do you post that here? If you are one of Mandrivas customer I suggest you talk with Mandriva.

    RE: Mirrors for a new Linux distro?
    I think using http://sourceforge.net/ is the easies thing to do, they have lots off mirrors and developers can care about what matters. Also check out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_open_source_software_hosting_facilities I checked out my "University mirror" http://ftp.sunet.se/ and yes what do I see they are mirror providers to sourceforge! Edit: Btw I have seen distributions that only have there ISO-files on SF and it's enough for world distribution. So you only have to put one download link on the distro page :D (you can always go with torrents to)

    Thank you mfillpot for making the site admins aware of this. I don't remember why I was turning of ABP (Adblock Plus Firefox plugin) in the first place.

    RE: Ads on Linux.com
    I give up now, it can be solved (except by blocking). I hope they complain to Google (or wait I guess they get money from them). I opt out, that setting is saved in the cookie, but it makes no difference.

    RE: Ads on Linux.com
    I removed all cookies, now the Google ads setting page says I need to opt in to get the cookie agen (edit: lie it was auto created agen, I will test opt out) so hopfully I will not see any more of those adds. I got some ads in Swedish so some of them is based on your location. Hurricane: I feel sad for the Irene casualties, and hope that everyone will be fine and thats it over soon. I did just read on the news that they are evacuating 370.000 in New York (by force). Can you still stay in your homes? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Irene_%282011%29
