All,

I just wanted to post that we just had our busiest month ever on LinuxHelp.ca in March 2004. We had a 35% increase in traffic and page views.

Thanks to all who are participating (both in asking and answering questions).

I personally am having to leave for work about 1.5 hours earlier than before, for at least the next couple of weeks (maybe longer), so I am not able to provide the same level of time I have in the past. I will try to answer any questions that don't have answers as often as I can.

agian, thanks

-Johnny Hughes

When i first met Joey and his gang on linux zealots it was on Dalnet in #redhat (i believe). We later moved over to #linuxhelp . From what I remember, we used to have around 10 ops and usually somewhere between 10-15 users hanging out there most of the time (minus the two bots, CoreDump and PerlGirl). After numerous frustrations with the Dalnet servers and their netsplits, we moved over to Blitzed because one of the #linuxhelp regulars was an admin on one of the servers on Blitzed (i forget who now).

We also had a brief stint on Freenode (then called OpenProjects) in channel #linuxhelp.net, but that didn't last long at all.


I for one would love to see IRC come back, but not for technical support. As i stated in my original greeting in the Tech support forum, IRC was good at times, but these forums are a much better way of helping users. Besides, we would definitly have no free time if we answered all questions on IRC, and we'd be constantly repeating ourselves. Creating the user forums was one of the best ideas Joey has ever come up with smile.gif

I'm always on IRC anyways if anyone wants to find me:

EFNET: #goodtimes, #mapleleafs
FreeNode: #gentoo,#livid,#mythtv-users
EnterTheGame: #urbanterror

#goodtimes is my home chan, so, if i'm not there, then i'm not online. Just ask for corey, and someone will direct you smile.gif We always have random people dropping by to say hi, so feel free.
