LQ Blogs and people's uses


I've been clicking the random blog button in hopes that I will find an interesting article or linux related pondering that somebody has posted. However, more often than not, I come across questions that people are asking. Why ask technical linux questions in your blog? Is it a way of storing your question so you can look back on it later and research it? Or are people just testing out the blog system? Either way, I like knowing I have a blog here. It gives me a place to post interesting things that I come across or what I plan on doing.

Anybody using their blog for something interesting?

These members who ask questions in their blogs are just poor uninformed people who don't know what a blog is for or how to use an online forum!

I think it's that people love to post questions and in the rush to do so don't actually look at where they are posting. If you do come across repeat offenders, hit the report button and they'll be cleaned up.

My blog (only 1 entry yet...) has been called a literary masterpiece.

I don't know I'm still not too keen about 'blogs.' I have always and always will consider them as web pages/sites. I never liked the term 'blog'.

I did think of putting up a page somewhere, maybe even on LQ since I have the option now, but I haven't thought of what to write about much, plus I'm just too lazy.

I draw the line at commenting on my own blog, unlike someone I shall only refer to as X.

That's a bug I think, it looks as though I am having a strange argument on there, but some of the posts are me responding to other posts. If you look at the dates it appears that the posts were made in 1970...

Oh yeah. I never noticed the dates on the comments. Strange?
Hang on a minute! There was no Linux in 1970! ( It took 5 minutes for that to dawn on me ). Have you got a time machine?

The bigger problem is that there were no internet in 1970.

As for blogs they are nice when once in a year idea hits you and you just have to write it somewhere without creating wordpress account or starting http server. But writing something constantly (every day, for example) is not for me.

Even more importantly, I wasn't even born in 1970!

I'm guilty, my only blog so far is about Roy Orbison.

Technically, there was or the path to what we now know the internet to be was around or being developed.

October 1, 1965: First Network Experiment: Directed by Larry Roberts at MIT Lincoln Lab, two computers talked to each other using packet-switching technology.

December of 1966, ARPA project begins.

By December 1, 1969 they (ARPA) had 4 nodes operational.

The first email programs were being created by 1972.

So on technical terms, the internet was around, just not as widely used as it is today.
