@voltist we dont block anything really. i think we only have 3 instances we block do to spamming.

Folks I don't know how many of you know Greg @G_Dog1985 he has been a essential part of LR since the beginning and is still the person who does all the maintenance to the server to keep us updated and secure.

He has unfortunately fell on some difficult times. He has had cancer for sometime and his grandpa is also ill and cannot work leaving it all on the shoulders of his mother to support the house. If you have any pocket change to share here is a good cause

@BradleySmall I just spent 45 minutes because I cut and pasted a config from a website and do to some space/tab formatting the file was not working properly for some reason no idea just a but frustrated now.

Thanks for you all that help purchase the new UPS!

@kezzbracey I have confirmed your account you should be able to login.

The issue is the mail server does not have reversals and a handful of mail servers reject mail without reversals. I am still trying to get my upstream to pass is to my DNS. The only solution I have for you at the moment to receive mail is to forward it through another account like gmail.

@OpenComputeDesign Human nature he lives in his world and does not grasp the other. Me as a dad wanted my son to go into computers however he decided to go military then want go go into police.

@OpenComputeDesign Computers of some form will always be around but with that said it is a great idea to work on other skills. I have done temporary work in many industries from electrician to plumber, carpenter and mechanic and more. Skills always come in handy especially when owning your own home. I am also a maker and love building the random weird object. Hints why I build my own 3D printer. So therefor there is some wisdom in your dad's advice

@nergal @linuxjournal To be honest I have been in IT 20+ years and from my view the buzz words is more of a recent advent as IT has became more mainstream. When I first started we use to call things what they did. Now we have words like cloud which really has no meaning other than other peoples hardware. Those are what I consider buzz words.

Every few years a new term is coined within the computer industry—big data, machine learning, agile development, Internet of Things, just to name a few. You'd be forgiven for not knowing them all.

Some of these are new ideas. Some are refinements on existing ideas. Others still are simply notions we've all had for a long time, but now we have a new word to describe said notions.

Which brings us to a topic we cover in depth in this latest issue of Linux Journal: DevOps.


@OpenComputeDesign I stay away from cheap discount parts. Past that most hardware will pretty much last as long as cooling it sufficient.
