Just bought www.helpwithlinux.net and www.helpwithwindows.com


Hey all,

Just a side note....

I just bought www.helpwithlinux.net and www.helpwithwindows.com

I have some spare space in a warehouse that I can throw up a rack, a switch, and a server. Not sure if I should buy a fractional T1 or what.

I want to try to get a couple forums going. I will be needing people and mods too

I'll get back to ya.

Peace

Dude...........relax.

I will never be competition for them.

I just paid $35 to help LQ out. I am not competing with them at all.

I am simply excited.

No problem - I just thought it was rather odd - that's all.

I really must get round to doing that myself sometime.

Good luck!

What kind of forum were you going to go with? Were you planning on creating one yourself or using something like phpbb, postnuke, or vBulletin?

Gonna use PHPBB. I have excellent skills in Microsoft servers which is why I will be doing the helpwithwindows.com site.

I will be in no condition to compete with LQ. This site is just too big

I have done PHP, MySQL, and junk on Redhat before for a forum. So, I will see what I can do again ...

No real big plans.....just for fun.

Peace.

Just FYI. You probably won't be needing moderators when first starting out with a forum. Until they get popular or if they ever get popular, usually they can be a one person show with moderating.
Jeremy didn't have Moderators here for about the first year or so. Then the site just got bigger and bigger as Linux is getting more popular, word of mouth and referrals to site, etc.

But good luck with the sites, they can be a handful. I think Jeremy could almost maintain this site as a full time job, but unfortunately he loses more money than makes from it.. one reason why there are ads, contributions and such setup for the site.

trickykid,

Thanks for the info. I think I may have gotten a bit overzealous today when I bought those. But........Oh well.

I'm out $70 bux

I don't think I can devote that much time to the sites

Peace out.

Ah, its still all good though. Create them as a hobby, just see where they lead to, can't hurt anyone or anything. Where did you register your sites at? 70 bucks is alot. Next time you register your site, search around as you can get them for way less expensive than 35 bucks a year for a domain.
I got my trickykid.org for 8 bucks to register.

But let us know when you get the sites up, I'll be sure to drop by and tell you what I think of them.. as I'm sure some others will as well.

Hey,

Thanks. I sometimes open too many projects at the same time. I need to finish some other linux stuff and also pass 2 Solaris tests first. After that I'll throw a box up with PHP and MySQL and do it. Until then....I'll be around giving, and lookin for answers

Peace all!

Come on macewan, does your post seem appropiate? Don't think it does myself. Should I get acid or mcleodnine to edit your thread or can we expect the right thing and you actually edit and remove it yourself?
