Sigh, I see he also misspelled Kris' name in the header--Moore, not More.  smile


Vielen Danke dynek.  Although I was told that even native speakers sometimes make mistakes with ein, eine, der die und so worten.  smile

Re: The magazine

Is the release out yet? I'm not sure if I already have missed it.

Re: The magazine

nope, not yet.  I'm not sure what's going on.

Re: The magazine

As I said, people have lost interest due to busy/hectic lives.

If we were to release another issue there would be zero content. No one has submitted things to me and the like.

I think people are far too busy to get serious with a mag sad

No, as I had nothing submitted for the next issue. What's the point of releasing an issue when the next issue has no set date?

A tight schedule needs to run, and I don't think anyone is able to cope with that at the mo

I totally agree wintellect. So, why not gather a group of dedicated contributors that don't mind sticking to a schedule? I'm in. I think there are some others around that could stand to lay aside the irc and do something constructive if only for a couple hours a month.

Re: The magazine

im in, but no one cares, and someone just wants the magazine to consist of the elite bsd nexus members how sad, how can such people discriminate people at the times when we are all struggling for the same goal

For example, Linux had at least two completely independent USB stacks before Linus Torvalds rejected them both and wrote a third one from scratch, after he found both existent Linux  stacks unsatisfactory.  (When pressed for an explanation as to why he selected the API he did, Torvalds stated: "because I wanted to."

That's partially true. scottro and I have submitted stuff.

Re: The magazine

I know that's parly true andre - but I need stuff for following issues too!

So, if anyone wants to be part of a "serious" commitment to a mag and it's requirements, then stand up and be recognised - and in approx. 1 week we'll see who's who and then we can get submissions and the like going smile

Re: The magazine

I was cleaning my hard drive and found a copy of BSD Nexus Magazine....

I had totally forgot about it. It was a darn good attempt at a e-zine!

Re: The magazine

Thank you.

Have acrobat and xpdf gone crazy or is half the magezine is some weird language, the first page "In the news" looks Italian(?), the interview with Kris Moore is in Egnlish, and then the first page of "OpenBSD  firewall in a few easy steps) in the same weird language again, while the rest of this article (By scottro) is in English, the Ruby article is also in English.

bleh? ugh?

Another BSD magezine (in the making):

Re: The magazine

This was explained somewhere on these forums, I think--or perhaps Wintellect emailed me privately.  It's Latin, I believe, and is used as a placeholder--a fairly standard (I think) practice in publishing--or else it's esparanto--but at any rate, it's used as a placeholder.  (Does a quick forum search for Latin)

Ah, answered in the thread we're in, post 18.  smile

Re: The magazine

http://www.lipsum.com/

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Re: The magazine

Right, so I've got a draft version smile

How was the magazine received btw? Were there a lot of readers?

Re: The magazine

I forgot how professional it looked, great work guys. I know when groups want to start zines it's always difficult to keep coming up with material. Maybe quarterly one could work out easier.

Re: The magazine

People liked the magazine and the overall look / feel.

It never got completed 'cos people didn't submit stuff - and this was the main problem, getting articles. I quite happily devoted time to the layout work, but the lack of content was frustrating.

Re: The magazine

Maybe a quarterly or bimonthly schedule would work. Only then, we could have a bare set of articles, and then additions made on the fly. Sort of like a Road Map.
