Greetings from Jim Dennis
So, I spent half of the month in Japan. The first week that I was there I was too busy, tired and disoriented to get any e-mail.
So my column this month is a bit thin. Of course there is this one message that’s pretty long. I think it’s the second longest I’ve ever written here. The longest was on Internet Routing. That one is being used as supplemental reading for a couple of college course from what I hear. This one is not likely to join it.
Meanwhile I still have about 3000 messages in my backlog folder which will take some going through. Luckily I use MH, so I’ll probably develop a script to process most of the routine stuff.
Speaking of « routine » Mike Orr, and Heather have taken steps to reduce the number of « routine » questions we get here in Linux Gazette. They’ve created an FAQ and an index to all of my previous « Answer Guy » questions. I haven’t seen it yet — but hopefully we can convince people to use it. There are about 900 questions that I’ve answered listed.
That, and the fact that the WebGlimpse engine at Linux Gazette (http://www.linuxgazette.com) seems to be working at last, might help people answer alot of their own questions (which is the whole reason I put so much time into TAG anyway).
