Media Purge

In order to reduce the amount of crap stuff I have laying around, in addition to making a box of old hardware to donate, I’ve been going through old Linux CD’s. Deciding which ones to pitch was a harder task than I first thought, so I figured I’d take a methodical approach to it. The criteria was this:

Have I:

Used it recently?
Ever used it?

Does it:

Have a download available?
Have a current community?
Contain customized content?
Have a special meaning?

Will:

I ever use it?
Someone else be able to use it?

Since most of these were burned disks, the only reason to keep something would be if it is not available anymore, has a special meaning, or I’ve used it a bunch and it contains customized content. Based on this, I’ve decided to pitch (in no particular order)

It happened, I finally got around to writing a post. Ever since the demise of Google Reader it has been sort of a downward spiral for this blog, my last post almost a year ago. From being number 1 in the search engines for “Linux Blog” to somewhere down on page who knows where and what desperate folks click those links?

I’ve not lost interest in Linux (I’ve used it every day since before the conception of this blog), or writing in general, but perhaps I’ve lost interest or have a lack of time for writing about Linux. There isn’t much to write about that hasn’t already been covered or can’t be for lack of a better term (and because no one uses Bing) “Googled.” I’d ask, what do people want to read about, but I could probably google that, or write about what I think people want to hear about, but that would just be regurgitating content for the sake of it.

This blogs not dead, I’m just going to shift topics a bit and write about what interests me about Linux and tech in general, projects I’m working on or problems encountered and see where that takes it. If I take it back to the beginning and make it fun again perhaps I’ll write more.

Until next time:
