Topic: work section

would be have a cool section for ideas that members here can use at work. Such as setting up a bsd webserver with pmwiki for making a knowledgebase for your dept. . I just think the whole idea of bringing ideas to work is a great benefit for everyone

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."

Re: work section

why do you need a 'work' section to bring bsd to work?

"setting up a bsd webserver with pmwiki for making a knowledgebase for your dept" can be done for work or not for work, along with anything else ever done with bsd.

Re: work section

Plus we have a RTFM section. That'd go in there.

Re: work section

Re: work section

so post them! i'm all for good ideas. but most ideas for work will also apply to home and personal projects, and vice versa. that's just my point.

Re: work section

I don't mind any BSD work related tips since my work PC dual boots WinXP and FreeBSD wink even if I very rarely get to use BSD here since it's not supposed to be on here but oh well we're sys admins and while the rest has some SuSE boxes to play with I go the Unix route...;)

Re: work section

I have another idea though, what about a BSD on Macs section, specific stuff or would that run under General BSD..I think it'd be nice to have something like a BSD on Macs or BSD on Sparcs or SGIs wink section so we can post our stories and help others.

Re: work section

I think a "why I hate my fucking job" forum is much more appropriate than a "how I can bring BSD to my work" one.

again, it's not like the general bsd is "i386 only". people already post about other platforms. in my opinion, making a new section for "other platforms" simply singles out "other platforms."

kinda the same argument i made for the "work section" ...
