Ok this is becoming a trend.

Two diary entries and both rants :-)

What will people think?? Who cares.

I think I may have found my calling, whether it's fate or whatever I think I now know what I'm going to do or at least occupy my spare time with. See if I can come up with some project to both help the newbies get accepted and to help those who seem to have problems with the newbies understand exactly how things are (or as much as is possible) as to how exactly I'm going to go about this. I have no idea really. But that's never stopped me before :-)

It might be possible to string it off jdub's Gondwana project as that seems to have similar goals even if it is more skewed towards the development side of things.

Maybe even have a site where developers looking for help can register and newbies wanting to get involved can do the same. shrug not sure at this stage but I know it's starting to get to the point where it needs to be done to save the whole OS/FS community from becoming closed source to people.

So if you think it's an idea or have any suggestions, or you'd even like to try and tear me a new asshole for thinking such thoughts you'll find me at treacy at ozemail dot com dot au

As Always,

Until Next Time
