Issue #96 is now available at: http://linuxgazette.net/issue96/index.html
This issue marks a change in hosting provisions. The Linux Gazette
is no longer associated with SSC (publishers of the Linux Journal).
The staff (all volunteers) of the Linux Gazette reached a consensus to
make new arrangements and we are all now at the linuxgazette.net site.
For details about these changes please read Ben Okopnik's lead
... and for an historical perspective Rick Moen has but together a
I, Jim Dennis, will be continuing on in my role as curmudgeon coach
to "The Answer Gang" while Mike Orr and Heather Stern continue to do
most of the work.
One note which might cause some confusion: SSC Inc. has implemented
a CMS-driven (content management system) which they are still calling
The Linux Gazette (http://www.linuxgazette.COM/ ). We consider this
to be a fork in the project.
While we appreciate SSC's support over the last several years, and
we wish them well in their endeavors; we felt that the CMS-based approach
detracted from Linux Gazette's fundamental nature as an online periodical
which could continue to be easily mirrored, packaged, translated, indexed,
and incorporated into the Linux Documentation Project (LDP) as it has
been since before its sponsorship by SSC.
Also please note that Heather Stern and I (Jim Dennis) have no
editorial control over the CMS-driven site, despite the appearance of
our names under the "Staff" heading at the bottom of linuxgazette.COM's
index page. While we're honored for the recognition of our past
efforts, we hope this won't cause any confusion for the readership of
these two respective sites.
