I decided to post a little introduction to myself here: Ask me who I was last March, and I would have had WinBloze 7 Beta on my main computer and would have been part of Micro$uck's test project for WinBloze 7 and would have been excited about it. However, that changed as soon as my network adapter changed and the new one worked with Linux. As soon as I tested the new adapter with Mint (I'd say about a year ago, in July 2009) I began to really value Linux for what it is.

However, I knew about Linux long before that. I started with gOS 2, which was my first distro. I had tried it back in about February 2008. I first learned about Linux back in mid-2007, from an article in PCMag that spanned several pages. I had quite a hard time back then, and Ubuntu Hardy was no different than gOS.

So then what took me so long from knowing about Linux to finally becoming an active user? My house was nothing but Wi-Fi. My mother set a secure wireless network up back then, and I couldn't connect to it because my adapter (Linksys WUSB54GSC) wasn't recognized by Linux. I had the patience to continue.

Then, in June 2008, my family got hit by the economic collapse here in the USA: The mortgage on my old house doubled and my family had to leave because of the rate increase. So, we were stuck in a hotel room until my family and I could end up in a new house. That Christmas, I wanted a netbook, and got my wish (the one I'm typing on, an Acer Aspire One AOA110-1545). It came with Linux preinstalled, and I liked it all around.

From then to June 2009, I still had WinBloze on my desktop, as Linux still didn't work with my wireless network adapter. Then, in June 2009 as I said, I got a new wireless network adapter, and in July decided to test it with Linux Mint 7. It worked, even from the Live CD! Now,

I am pleased to announce the creation of my new forum

    When I go to it I get to my ISP's page that shows up when a site doesn't exist.

    Probably because it's hosted on my netbook and your ISP just doesn't recognize it.

    Here's a screenshot of the page:

    It doesn't exist. Where did you get this domain name from? What's your registrar?

    Yeah, I found out that I used my local IP address instead of my global IP address for it. I have to reconfigure it to the major and minor IP address (although I don't know how to separate them) in order to get the site to work, as technically the only device that has a global IP in my house is the Linksys WRT310N router (and possibly the modem).

    what the heck?

    Hi there, I was interested in getting my flame on at Micro$uck and Ora˘le on your site, but when i browse to http://www.proprietarysuckware.org/forum I end up at this site called Linsux and the people there started calling me names like Linux Youth -- just what are you trying to pull?

    I decided a few weeks ago to rid myself of the Micro$uck WinBloze $even and learned to Ubuntu. Now I am an expert of DNS cache, and want to express my appreciation for Linux and rabbit hatred of M$ and O˘ but your site seems to be different than your picture.

    Now that I am an expert how can I help you to make http://proprietarysuckware.org look OK? You should take a peek at the site, as it seems different for no reasons. Perhaps we need to substitute some high res pictures for viewing distances?

    I think your minor IP address may be carbage, so if you don't mind you should take it right off and substitute it for another. Some hightened addresses randomize one netmask.

    I think we shall start anew ourselves. I'm wondering if there are many people here would like to see the forum about proprietary sof^Wsuckware bashing. I personally like this idea but creating a forum for localhost is a strange idea, right? O_o
    I think I should have made a vote. From here I see only 3-5 persons

    Yeah, it sounds like Linsux tried to pull something. I will be sure to strike back.

    And the problem with hosting on a remote server is that I am afraid the FluxBB dependencies will not be installed.

    I want to know if there is any DNS software that can autodetect dynamic IP addresses.

    As I said before: I tried to use my local IP address and not my global one, which caused this mess.

    OH NOES THEY KILL KENNY! I am a dependency ninja with my ubuntu skill, how can I help you recover your fine domain so we can smoke the proprietary ba$tards? I think you can input the dependencies for FluxBB with cat <<EOF. There is DNS software that will autodetect dynamic IP addresses it is called binded-d.

    It's not a mess. You can't just specify a real IP of other site called "linsux" which then redirects "yourdomain/$1" to "linsux/$1" occasionally. So either you planned this or you don't have any idea about how internet works, so you didn't register that domain name, some guy reading these blogs came across and saw domain is free so he captured it and pwned you. I was actually planning to do the same, although I was planning to create my own bashing forum on same topic as you described, but it was too late
    I am still wondering what was that all about my first comment: what was the reason for removing and ignoring that?

    I agree. It is not a mess I think someone pwned something somewhere on these internets. Did Kenny plan for and link this to linsux, he is a Linsux spy placed in this forum to try to pwn innocent Ubuntu users? What kind of bashing will you do in your forum, M$?

    No. Linsux is absolutely insane. They're M$ trolls who have no concept of freedom, only totalitarian jerks who deserve to be nuked off the map.

    And bashing in this forum (if I am able to find out my global IP address and, if it's dynamic, if there's DHCP-compliant DNS software) would be not just M$ but AppŁe and OracŁe as well. *All* proprietary software.
