Quick Update on Recent LQ Updates


There's been a lot of upgrades going on in the LQ Network, so I wanted to post a quick summary in case you missed anything.

LQ Wiki: http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/
The LQ Wiki recently received a code upgrade and minor face lift, where numerous feature enhancements and bug fixes were applied. We're now 11 articles away from our next goal of 3,000. The site now also accepts OpenID. Help us build the largest general Linux knowledge base on the web.

LQ ISO: http://iso.linuxquestions.org/
Your favorite Linux download site has now facilitated over 3,000,000 Linux distribution downloads.

LQ Radio: http://radio.linuxquestions.org/
The LQ Radio site also recently received a code upgrade and minor face lift, where numerous feature enhancements and bug fixes were applied. We plan to bring back the LQ Radio Interview Series in the near future (and already have some fabulous guests lined up). We've also expanded our ogg support. Add this feed to your favorite podcatcher.

Tutorials/Articles/Blogs
All three of these sections recently received a code upgrade and have enhanced usability and more features. We plan on significantly expanding these original and user generated content sections this year.

Jeremy's Blog: http://jeremy.linuxquestions.org/
I just moved my blog over to Wordpress and will be adding a bunch of new features and widgets in the comings days. Add this RSS feed to your favorite aggregator.

As you can see, we've been fairly busy the last couple of weeks. In the coming weeks I'm happy to announce that the main forum will hopefully be receiving the code upgrade I've long promised. Once that's done, we'll work through the backlog of feature requests that we've gotten, but if you have a suggestion for a new feature or even a new site, please don't hesitate to post it here. I'd like to once again thank each and every LQ member for making this site one of the premier Open Source resources available.

Nice. I was just wondering if you, Jeremy could provide some stats as to how much bandwidth usage, hits, from where, etc.
I know this isn't very usefull, but it would be really nice to know anyway.

If you poke around some recent posts of mine I gave some statistics. A lot of things we just don't track all that closely. If you include the mirrors, podcasts, etc. our bandwidth has to be well over a Terabyte a month.

Hey. I love the fact that you enabled OpenID for the wiki. It's almost a reason to edit in itself

One thing I noticed, I get logged out rather quickly. For example, I can log in in the morning, and after some period of inactivity, in the afternoon I have to log in again.

I don't clear my cookies, and I remain logged into other OpenID sites. Is there an option to stay logged in with OpenID?
