Murderer confesses on Anandtech forum
Posted Friday, May 18, 2001 - 9:19 AM by: Sensei | Submit Your News
Ripped from the Register, "Anandtech community member Dennilfloss has dramatically confessed to the murder of another member, single mother Nowheremom, on the tech site's forum.

Dennilfloss developed a relationship with Nowheremom over the Internet and arranged to meet her in real life. He did so and the two hit it off. Members were shocked, however, when Dennilfloss announced the death of her and her daughter on the site in January last year. He claimed they had been knocked down by a car in bad weather."

--Hmmm do we have any multi-nicked users at LNO? Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. ;)

Linux takes Hollywood
Posted Thursday, May 17, 2001 - 1:35 PM by: Sensei | Submit Your News
Thanks to a few people for sending this in:

"An ugly green ogre named Shrek may make an impression when he arrives in theaters nationwide Friday. He might also spook some people in the computer industry.

The ornery, mud-loving creature morphs into a romantic hero through some of the richest digital animation yet created. Producer DreamWorks SKG gives considerable credit for the performance to another transformation -- animators' use of the free Linux operating system instead of software from the likes of Microsoft Corp. and Silicon Graphics Inc."

Linux beats MS in benchmark test
Posted Wednesday, May 16, 2001 - 9:27 AM by: Sensei | Submit Your News
Tyr_7BE was the first to write in about this:

"Linux has finally made it onto the business map in the area of database benchmarks, helping take the wind out of Microsoft's continued contention that open-source operating systems don't make good business sense.

While benchmark wars are commonplace in the database space, until the latest TPC-H numbers were released Microsoft had come to largely dominate the TPC numbers with a combination of SQL Server 2000 running on Windows 2000 across a variety of hardware platforms.

The Transaction Processing Performance Council released new data this week showing that IBM's upcoming DB2 7.2 release running on Linux 2.4.3 outperforms SQL Server 2000 running on Windows 2000 in the 100GB category.

The winning entry was clocked on an SGI 1450 server. DB2 7.2 is due to ship on June 8, while the SGI-Linux-IBM combination system is expected to be commercially available from October 31."

Eazel Closes Up Shop
Posted Tuesday, May 15, 2001 - 11:15 PM by: Sensei | Submit Your News
Thanks to everyone, including my grandparents who live in a retirement home, for sending in this linkage:

"As of May 15, 2001, Eazel has ceased operations. Our most diligent efforts were not sufficient to secure additional funding. We're disappointed that we can't continue developing software and services for users of Open Source Software. We are confident, however, that Nautilus development will continue forward. For those interested in participating in Nautilus development, more information is available at

If you had files stored on the Eazel Online Storage Service, we have made alternative arrangements for you to retrieve them. Detailed information on this process is available at We have tried to minimize any inconvenience that this might cause."

Check it out here is 'the place' for people that are transitioning to Linux from Windows and are having a hard time learning how to operate, install, and getting around the OS. At LNO we do more than help newbies, we help *people* get better with linux.

At we have devised a different system of learning Linux. Instead of following the boring HOW-TO's and reading MAN pages, "we" would like to act as a portal and archive all of the tips/tricks and "HOWTO's" users have created or send in to us. These files will be laid out in an easy to read and understandable format. not only plans to bring you "Newbieized Help Files," but "we" plan on bringing you "Newbieized Help Files" on other OS's such as IRIX and Solaris as well as any and all distributions of Linux.

Our Credo:
"We the newbies of the Linux community, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish better documentation, insure cross platform understanding, provide for the common computer user, promote the general goodness of Linux and other OS's, and secure the Blessings of Linus to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Website for the Linux"
[-Newbie Help!!!-]
A NHF is a "Newbieized Help File". What LNO and many of the forum users are creating is a new form of documentation for newbies as well as advanced users.
