There was the chance of using an irc channel before but I think that not many ppl like the use of irc.

What I did think was good in terms of chat was when I used to use ICQ and put up my number for help. The amount of one-2-one chats I had was in the end too many but there were huge benefits of it. Maybe a system of 1-2-1 chats could be enabled here, especially as some ppl spend a lot of time here anyway. You could even set up a queue where by ppl who desperately need personal help, can log there number, and some one can go throught the numbers, spending time with ech one. Bit like the system at a delicatessen!

Has any more been said about a Poll forum?

I may enable private messaging someday, but I don't think the machine could handle it right now.

It was mentioned accross General and Distro recently the possibility of having a section for LFS. I don't really suggest this now as there's only about 6 or 7 of us fiddling with it, but it might be interesting to keep in mind if it goes from being the crack of the week to cocaine in the mid-80's.

I've checked out the LFS newsgroups, and although they answered, kinda, the questions I had (this was just me prowling their archives), LFS is the sort of project that gets rather involved and it helps to have a forum such as this that is much more colloquial and friendly.

Alright, enough chatter from me. This is probably the next flash in the pan anyway.

YES!!! I'm a hardware man, and would love a place just to bug ppl about how to set up hardware. It may be a bit small to do it, but a thread just for data storage may be nice too..

hm... i must lack imagination... don't have much to suggest... probably coz i'm still asking questions more than i am helping others right now.

this forum has inspired me more than any book has (although i do look to books, manpages, HOWTOs and other internet websites for info as well) in my linux quest. it's real people with real problems and real answers that make the road more enjoyable.

so this post is a great big thank u to all who help here... and especially to jeremy who set this up in the first place (and whoever that helped him that i don't know about ).

Jeremy I was thinking, rather than ask for two 512k Pentium Pros you should ask for the Evergreen 500 mhz upgrade cpu and have an even faster server. Also take a look at my post in Linux installation. I hope I get help soon because I have software specific to the mouse installed under Windows and as a result don't dare to boot Windows until I have the other mouse installed again. Please help if possible.
