Hello everyone, just thought I should let you all know I’m still alive and explain what’s going on with the lack of new articles. As you can see in the previous post my testing PC had something of a disaster. I’ve managed to get it up and booting again but I’ve lost a hard drive, the one I was testing Arch on and I also had to fix a capacitor on the motherboard. I’ve removed the drive trays and fitted the hard disks directly into the machine. It seems as though they may not have been the problem but I’m not putting them back in at the moment because I need this machine for music and podcast recording. I’m not sure what to do about testing now, I could get an old machine and use that or look at something like VirtualBox. One thing’s for sure though this won’t stop me so don’t worry 🙂
I’ll sort out that long promised review of Ubuntu Hardy and take it from there. I was really enjoying playing with Arch and I’ll have to start again with another hard disk or machine. In the meantime if you want to hear my thoughts on anything Linux and open source related please check out the Linux Outlaws podcast which we have managed to keep going through the technical problems. We talk about open source news, new distro releases, reviews and much much more, all with some irreverent humour and light-hearted feel.
So, I’ll be back with more reviews ASAP, hopefully this week, thanks for your patience and understanding. I’ll see you all very soon 🙂
