I would like to add articles/topics related to Scheduling(v-2.6.x) with respect to User & Kernel mode. Also for Compilers and using Linux in Pervasive/Ubiquitous Computing areas for Embedded devices.

I have received your 1-15-06 Email but I do not how in the world I could help. I am old, disabled and computer illiterate to say the least. My only asset is a knowledge of nine ki astrology and my life experiences of human nature. I truly wish I had something to offer the members of LinuxQuestions instead of just being a drain on everyone's patience.

I'm able to translate English into Dutch into French and maybe soon into Russian
But of course that's not why we are here.

I think that for the moment I lack having an objective.

It might be a suggestion of putting a need-4-tutorial section, where people might find new idea's on topics to handle in their tutorials.

We do not need to know the topic as long as we have the base supporting our evolution into mastering it.

My superpowers are ccna - xdsl - atm - ip.

I'm an English teacher (from England, would you believe!) in Korea, running XP Pro and Mandriva 2006.0 on my home-built box here . . . I have several blogs around the place but not here at LQ . . .

Migrating to Linux is not without trials and tribulations when you're only really "experienced" with different flavours of M$ but I think there's a certain "attitude" you have to have, which involves being slightly tough and not giving up . . . example: I could not get SCIM to work with KOffice, OOo 1.1.3 or 2.0, but it _did_ work with LeafPad and now, finally, I can write in English, Chinese, Japanese and English in AbiWord! (It prints OK, too . . .)

Perhaps this is some kind of experience that many people would find useful. I wanted to get English Windoze but that has proven impossible here in Korea (although no doubt someone has worked out how to do it . . .). First opportunity I got, I downloaded Mandrake 10.0 and I stuck with it simply because it allowed me to do everything in English rather than having to guess what I was doing under Windoze every time I used a menu . . . Now I can trade currencies online, do DTP and listen to the radio. all at the same time, under Mandriva.

Would people find a blog about that interesting?

Andrew. ^_^b

Although I'm going in another direction (not microsoft ) I'm willing to offer my services to LQ. I was system administrator for two years in a web hosting company, RedHat Enterprise was the OS I was admin to. My favourite distro is by far slackware, I know alot about apache web server, tomcat, php, jsp integration of them, shell scripting, administration, iptables, all kind of servers (dns,samba,ftp etc), I'm admin in a net cafe and I also know alot about dedicated servers in linux boxes like call of duty 2, lineage2, cs etc. I'm willing to help...I love this OS

Thanks for all the great responses so far - it's really appreciated. A couple comments:

* dombrowsky, the site focuses on all Linux users. There are over 200,000 members so we are bound to have a little of everything

* For those of you interested in writing articles, howtos and editorials - please use the contact form and let use know what you'd be interested in writing. For those of you who have already done so, we're responding as fast as we can. The response to this was a bit higher than I anticipated, which is a fantastic problem to have

* We didn't anticipate the huge number of translation offers. While this is not something we have an immediate need for, knowing that we have this kind of available manpower has sparked a couple of ideas. If the future need arises I will be using this thread as a guideline for offers.

* If you're looking to contribute smaller amounts of info or are in the grammar checking department, the LQ Wiki is absolutely ideal for you. One great thing about a wiki is that anyone can jump right in and start contributing, so if you are in this category you can start as soon as you are ready. Head over to and click on the edit link on any page.

Thanks again.

Hello there.

Being from Mexico, my mother tongue is Spanish so I can contribute with any translation. I also speak French, and English. I do not consider myself to be a Linux Guru or similar, but I have been managing Linux systems (debian is my preferred dist.) since 4 or 5 years ago.
Main areas or interest and/or expertise are Real Time, redundancy, clustering for high availability, backup and disaster planning, and embedded applications as well as industrial control and automation. I am quite interested but not an expert by any measure in security and cryptography.

Best regards to all,
Chilango Chilaquil

Hi Jeremy,

I'm confused. An XavierP asked me this same question in a thread I had written introducing myself to the community. I responded positively in the Thread as I have no other means apparent to me to contact this person. Since my response I have received no feedback. Can you bring me up to date on what the situation is?
