Congrats on the big 8 Jer :-)

From fiddling with my first LFS with Taz back in 2001 in a probably long forgotten corner of the LQ forums when I was a library clerk in Atlanta, to working as a Network Engineer out of Dublin; I owe most of it to what I learned on LQ.

If you ever make it accross the pond again, for a convention or whatever, I'll drop by. The Guinness is on me.

And I signed up to join your forum BUT regretfully so I practically ignored this forum as I was busy playing around with Windows!
But now I have been introduced to "Ubuntu 8.04" I am hooked on Linux BUT still CRAWLING ALONG!

I am still trying to get into grips with all the packaging, compiling and even to folders and mounting and unmounting!

I hope I will not become a nuisance by troubling you for advice from time to time to time!

Thanks for this forum

Aha. I was clicking on the My Lq button at the top, next to the Quick Links drop down menu.

Maybe that's an improvement that can be made, considering that more than one person had trouble navigating that feature. The My Lq button at the top just takes you to the user control panel. How about changing the name of the button to UserCP or linking that button to a page containing the links under the My LQ menu on the right. Or even making it a drop down menu

happy Birthday!!!
As an old senior I really enjoy the help I get from these forums.

One thing I would like to see is a simple way to use Wine. One that would present windows or fields to imput names or programs and it would set it up to allow you a icon on the desktop to run the application.

As you can tell i am a windows person at heart. There are some applications that I need to run that don't seem to exist in Linux. Sad but true.

Online banking and financial institutions are a must for me as a retiree.

lchisholm - there are a few front ends to Wine that may be what you are after - PlayOnLinux (no cost and not just for games) or Crossover Office spring to mind.

I think it says a lot for the site that there are still so many members lurking and participating who have been here for so long.

Happy birthday.

Once again a post to LQ has just answered a question I couldn't solve by Googling. LQ has been a resource of inestimable value to me. Without the help of the forum members I might have given up trying to learn Linux altogether. BTW, at the rate I'm learning you'd better be around for a long time yet

I can't think of a suggestion at present, mainly because you've got so many bases covered. So well done and long may you prosper

Happy Birthday, LQ!

I don't have any suggestions for Jeremy &co. I do have suggestions for the general community, especially my Slackware cohorts: Post more "HOWTO's!" or more specifically, post more "how I did it"'s. These things can be great when general users are trying to find very specific hacks to weird hardware-specific problems that don't deserve Linux-HOWTO status.

Nostrovia, Cheers, Salut, Sante', and Skoal to all!
