Looking for an article topic
I've been looking at getting into technical writing (recreationally only) for a while now. I consider myself a reasonably clear writer, and fairly well versed in technologies. That being said, my creativity is quite lacking at times. So, I'd like suggestions on a topic or mini-howto that I could write about. I am a Computer Science major in college and my linux background comes from 6 years of SOHO servers and desktops, so anything along those lines would be great.

I guess I'm just looking for a way to make my contribution to the community.

Voip/Skype phones. From download and install. Configuration for headset, USB phone, USB Converter. As simple as possible whilst trying to remain distro agnostic.

There has been tons written on this topic, but most - IMHO - very badly.

I just need to find myself some of that hardware. I would love the chance to play with it. :) Thanks for the suggestion, and I'll keep it in mind.

Oh Matir. Get yourself over to Website Suggestions and Feedback - I posted up a thread asking for members to suggest article topics for our writers. Check it out and then use the box on the right to register your interest.

I have closed this to keep the discussion in one place. (and I don't want you stealing my thread's thunder :p)
