Posted by libretto on Dec. 09 2004,23:21John,
Is the above site created using Grims bashblogger software?
Posted by SaidinUnleashed on Dec. 10 2004,00:22And are we, as regular users allowed to post?
And if so, how should we do so?
Posted by John on Dec. 10 2004,09:45Grim's Blog is cool, but it is really meant for a personal blog, not a community system.
Yes, please feel free to start posting there, start your own personal DSL blog.
Posted by ico2 on Dec. 10 2004,13:45mmm, would not be hard to use a section of it as a wiki for all those faqs
Posted by libretto on Dec. 10 2004,22:30So thats a no then

Posted by John on Dec. 12 2004,00:29Guys, please consider yourselves invited to grab a blog. I am going to be putting my rants/opinions in there too.
Posted by clivesay on Dec. 12 2004,00:38This is my first blog experience so I am getting used to it. Once that happens, I'll blab about everything, probably.
Posted by clacker on Dec. 13 2004,20:49John, Thanks for giving us the opportunity of blogging. It is very much appreciated. I hope that this blogging experiment brings even more notice to dsl in the future.
Posted by John on Dec. 15 2004,08:13The Drupal software is good for articles as well as blogging so I changed the url to broaden it's scope.

If you are keen on writing any type of light Linux articles let me know.
Posted by clacker on Dec. 15 2004,17:31Is there any way to make a < or a > character in a blog entry? I had an entry all made, but wherever I had an <F7> written, I got a blank spot. Putting it in a code section didn't help.
Posted by mikshaw on Dec. 15 2004,17:56I converted them all to square brackets. Probably not much help to you....
You might be able to use HTML code, though that's even more work:
< or < = <
> or > = >
Posted by clacker on Dec. 15 2004,21:19mikshaw, thanks, the < and > worked. I had tried < but I was missing the semicolin.
Posted by davide on Dec. 16 2004,15:42isn't it somehow a double of the forum?
people probably cannot post twice.
It may drain info and hints from the forum pages..that are so important to dsl development..
anyway. congrats for the blog, that for sure is another step forward in dsl history

Not really, the blogs are a little less topic strict than the forums.
The forums are supposed to be all business, but if you feel the urge to talk about youself, or your cat, you can do that in the blogs.
Posted by mikshaw on Dec. 17 2004,03:22The blogs are also terrible for posting code, unless you happen to write very short lines.
