I'm watching my favourite television show on my computer now...Heroes...I'm only watching it because it is on a 5 week hiatus! That is so long...it is starting back on April 23,2007...which is so far away...like 8 days lol...so I've had to watch episodes over to help fill my craving...although it only increases my craving for Heroes episode 19 season one...what is your favourite television show? And do you watch Heroes?

I also like Heroes, it's really cool.
This week was Season 1 - Episode 11, and I can't wait for wednesday to see the next episode.

Besides that I love watching Discovery Science and most kinds of motor racing.

My favourites are Star Trek

My favourites are Star Trek (but The Next Generation above all) and Battlestar Galactica right now (at least I like it better than Babylon 5).

Of other shows I don't have much favourites, but I like good comedy like good old Seinfeld. Smiling

I saw a quote on the LinuxQuestions forum: I am 28 years old and I intend to be eternal. So far, so good! KML !! (Kicked Myself Laughing)

LFDO

By the way this site was made because of a disagreement with LFDO.

<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libervis_Network#Nuxified.org">LN Wikipedia article</a> (which I mostly wrote) wrote:

It was founded in response to LinuxForums.org switching its forum software from the free phpBB to the nonfree vBulletin after being bought out in December 2005. Common users of Libervis.com and LinuxForums.org felt that was hypocritical and set a bad example for a FOSS site.[2].

Very interesting, thanks

Very interesting, thanks for that!

This is a lot for a Novice, but I think they have similar problems at the UF's? (My first forum membership in January 2007 with my first Internet connection, even if I am 44 years old!)

It sounds like phpBB needs marketing (tangible/solid, not the usual capitalist hype) as the reason given for the use of vBulletin (I think) at the UF's, is that phpBB could not handle the constant bandwidth?

My home forum: www.modfree.org runs on PHP; there's a quaint little Novice Tale associated with my knowledge of it which I'll find later:

* LFDO = ?

Many thanks! :-)

LFDO is an acronym for LinuxForums.org, a popular but rather bloated and over-commercialized GNU/Linux support forum site which runs proprietary vB.

Nuxified can also be called NXFD for short. Eye

I just had my first glance

I just had my first glance at LFDO. Nice looking site, but the figures of 90'000 members and 400'000 posts (about 5 p/member?) is not exactly "buzzin" is it?

In rough terms, my introduction to the internet and my transition to a less proprietary OS than Microsoft (namely Linux, as opposed to GNU/Linux as I'm learning) has taken 4 months, in which time I have happily contributed more than 600 posts. In this time, I have gained more confidence and control over my machine than I ever had from 4 years of plodding away with Win 98SE.

My point is: Keep doing what you believe is right and others will always be attracted to that.

I will tell you the same as I told my Home Forum: gNewSense is the most monumental step forward for Linux as it brings a Free system closer to the mainstream. However, as the progress of mainstream computing is based around games, eye candy and Microsoft Office, there is no small task at hand!

Best I can do for now. Smiling

That's a very good advice. Thank you. Smiling

You're right, the gNewSense project builds on the great work that the diverse Ubuntu community did in moving GNU/Linux so much closer to the desktop mainstream and turns it into a pure freedom (b)ringing GNU/Linux distro where it is easy to see just how far has 100% Free Software gotten. And it's gotten very very far. Smiling

Cheers

Well, these figures don't necessarily relate to the quality of questions and answers on the forum.
The german forum I'm active on has 154963 members and 950365 posts, which is an average of around 6.1 posts per member.
Sometimes people just register for one question and then never come back, sometimes people just register for reading, or in case they might want to ask something.

On that forum we have quite some very active users, of the 950365 posts, over 10000 of these are mine. I'm third in the list when you sort by number of posts, which means that around 34000 posts alone (the other 2 are around 11000-12000 posts) are from the top 3 users. Which leave around 916000 posts written by 154960 users, which gives an average of 5.9 posts per member. The difference doesn't seem so big, but I guess it still shows that you always have users that are just registered, but don't post. And that you always have some hyper-active users. At least in fora of that size.

After my short but very

After my short but very interesting flirt with Ubuntu's parents, I'm back to Feisty and feeling even more comfortable than before. Also, I will still use gNewSense on another drive to try and keep up to date, but as there is so many things for me to learn anyway, I won't be placing too many high ideals on myself.

Oh, just to make sure, I'm certainly not trying to give you any advice, I was merely pointing out that I am proud of the fact that I have at least some understanding of the direction the forum is going, and I think it's right up to date!

I was thinking of modifying my Sig' to "Every LINUX counts!"

Many thanks!! :-)
