Thanks for the feedback. A couple comments.

* If you hold you mouse over any icon it will give you a description.
* We are working on improving the search and do realize how important it is.
* A complete HCL rewrite is on the TODO.
* I'm not sure what you mean by "open space" or that the news forum is "a little cheesy".

I would just like to say that without this forum, I simply wouldn't be using Linux AT ALL. For some reason I can never get anything to work and without your help, I would have definitely given up long ago.

now I have 3 Linux servers that I set up at work, and am currently setting up my 4th for web proxy and filtering. I still have no idea what I'm doing, even simple things stump me (today, I can't seem to set up my DSL connection...) and I guarantee that I will be coming back over and over.

My only suggestion is to move the links menus to the left side of the screen. Otherwise this site is excellent the way it is.

I didn't think of that. I have seen some pretty gnarly fights in IRC. I also find myself having to save the session, forget to back it up, run into the same problem again and have to ask te same question in the IRC again. The forum I can use as a "poor man's manual."

Thumbs up So much stuff

First off, Happy Birthday LQ.

Thanks to this forum I am slowly getting back to terms with the Linux World, and the different versions out there.

I use to train Linux Beginners and Intermediate until my training courses were not full of people anymore and I went Windoz.

My last version was way back at Suse 7.1 Pro, etc.

In the last few weeks I finally got sick of vista and tried out Ubuntu, Fedora, Goblinx, Solaris 10 and Mandriva.

My good luck was that many functions and programs are still simular to the older versions, somethings have gotten so much easier. And still other things (like those darn drivers, rpms..) are still somewhat cryptic.

All in all though I am happy I came back to the Linux world again.

After buying a 500gb sata drive I installed Fedora 9 and am very happy.

Now all I need to do is edit the permissions, httpd, nis, etc and lastly MySql and I am ready to rock.

Thanks to this site and all those Linux Gurus out there that will answer some of this old fart's questions.

CptMike

It sure is. He was kind enough to stop by and help out while I was judging the Product Excellence awards.

Thumbs up Enjoy the climb to the top ...

Once you get there, the fun is over ...
So be wise, have a good time, work hard, take some time out, or you'll forget about what real life is like.

I would suggest there be some way for members to contact mods. Perhaps there could be some qualification standard to have this privilege. It occurred to me this may be possible for those with 1000 or more posts, because I don't have that many yet. If so, sorry.

This is the only forum that has held my interest for years. It is one of the reference standards around the net for digital civilization. Jeremy, you've done a great job, but you are capable of much more. I tell you this because the data processing sphere blinks, and looks elsewhere.

Constant vigilance is required to stay in the game. I like what you've done with LinuxQuestions.org. Keep at it.

AwesomeMachine,

You should feel free to contact any mod (or myself) at any time. As a rule we're all available via email. Also, we have no plans to rest on our laurels and have some great things in the pipeline for the near future. Stay tuned.
