It's not technically possible for this to happen, I can assure you.

I browsed for a while. 5 of the 8 exit node IP's were listed; no requests to LQ were blocked. At this point, this subject is completely off-topic for this thread. If you'd like the discussion to continue you'll need to start a new thread.

Clearly there's no use in doing so.

Happy Birthday and thanks to everyone who made this site possible. I recently joined because I am a student of networking administration and almost every question about Linux I Googled over the last year had a link to a posting in this site. Thanks for making the help available.

From LQ turning 12 thread. Real people solving real world problems.

I'm a Linux sysadmin and I'd thought I'd give you a tip on how to make the most of LinuxQuestions which isn't obvious when you first sign up. I'll make three points.

1.) You can subscribe to threads. When you see a thread of interest you can subscribe to them by clicking on Thread Tools > Subscribe to this thread.

2.) You can access your subscribed threads by clicking on "My LQ" in the upper right hand of the forum. Old/read threads will be archived out of view but when there's a new post in a thread then it will show up and you can read the new replies. I recommend disabling being updated by emails to new replies and just using this feature alone.

3.) LQ has a "Zero reply" thread section. Meaning anytime someone asks a question and nobody has replied to it then it shows up there. You can access it by going to Quick Links > Zero Reply Threads.

Now to string my three points together. As a professional it is important to always keep up to date and learn on new and emerging technologies (as you may know). When you use those three points together it becomes and extremely powerful professional learning tool.

Step 1. Access the zero reply threads just for the heck of it. Look through there for topics that interest you (e.g. Apache, BIND/DNS, etc.).

Step 2. When you find an unanswered topic then be sure to subscribe to it. Be sure to check back periodically to see what other forum members say about that technology.

Step 3. Google around yourself about the problem and see what you can learn about it (I even sometimes answer them if I know it after Googling extensively).

By following those three points and taking those steps you'll see and learn from the real world. This is far from the abstract learning you're used to in school and will take you very far in your career very quickly. Last year I doubled my salary (from $30k -> $60k) because I moved to Linux administration learning how the real world uses the technology together.

It's fun to think about and I've certainly benefited from this site (obviously) because I took the knowledge I learned here and turned it around moving into Linux system administration (was a scientific lab tech which was technically interesting but paid horribly). It's good to exercise your brain and LQ is a fun place to do that.

the LQ color scheme will not be changing)
Thank you for that idea. More than half of the people coming here (the new ones mostly) carry upon them the burden of solving certain problem and seeking solutions: arriving here now and then in this familiar ambiance emotes inner feeling of being at home, inviting confidence, --conditions that may improve their mental concentration.

What is twelve years? Everybody earned that length of days. But to have been able to see twelve years pass doing something dedicated to helping others for no money in return is more than venerable and sublimely noble. Words cannot be enough to express this universal gratitude, and admiration for having done such commendable accomplishment: a work that has greatly helped in changing the computing lives of others. I salute you.

Jeremy you are my hero.
