note-9562016Shane Collinge

Part computer programmer, part cartoonist, part Mars Bar. At night, he runs around in a pair of colorful tights fighting criminals. During the day… well, he just runs around. He eats when he’s hungry and sleeps when he’s sleepy.

note-9562016Chris Gibbs

I’m a mad, sad geek with three dogs, a network and a cat living on top of a mountain in a Welsh valley. So I’m a contradiction! All that is good is either caffine, chocolate or Linux, so send me lots of chocolate or just point me at more great stuff to run on a salvaged 486! chocolate@hawklord.uklinux.net

note-9562016Ben Okopnik

A cyberjack-of-all-trades, Ben wanders the world in his 38′ sailboat, building networks and hacking on hardware and software whenever he runs out of cruising money. He’s been playing and working with computers since the Elder Days (anybody remember the Elf II?), and isn’t about to stop any time soon.

note-9562016Irving Washington

Irving Washington (pseud.), as witnessed by his personal server www.fifthgate.org, is mostly interested in creating useful web services.

Here are some screenshots of lesser-known features of Microsoft Office. David Deckert made the last one. Neither of us know where the other three came from.






We have changed the Linux Gazette logo at the top of the page to an 8K PNG image for your fast-downloading pleasure. Thanks to Karl-Heinz Herrmann for the suggestion and the image. Here is also a small version (200 pixels wide) for those who want an icon on their site to link to LG site with.

Happy Linuxing!
