The site currently runs on a few boxes. The main site is on an ASL Lancelot and runs a highly modified version of Red Hat.

Thanks Jeremy. I've contributed. I'm not looking for any special treatment or glorification. I just really wanted to say thanks for such a kick butt site.

I'm sure you get this alot, but know that if you ever need anything, don't be afraid to email me.

Thanks.

I'm going to become a contributing member. This site is one of the best Linux-help sites there is. I've gotten so much from it, I feel a need to give something back.

Can I suggest a new feature for the site? I would like to see a section for people to submit their favorite tweaks, tricks, solutions-to-common-problems. Kind of like a recipe book. We all probably have things we do first thing when we install Linux, the stuff we do to make it 'ours.' Mine is a little one-liner script I found for IP tables that makes a perfect firewall for a stand-alone box with dialup, and a list of obnoxious servers that I put into my hosts file to block them. I'd like to see a repository of everybody's favorite tips.

Peace!

Yes, I've seen it and it's fascinating. The problem is, you can't browse it by subject. If it gets much longer, a lot of nice tips will be lost inside it because people won't have time to read pages and pages...
Ahh, well. Here I am trying to make more work for you. The forums are great!
