    DOYLESTOWN, PA, Apr 3, 2012 - IQnection Internet Services, Inc, an Internet Hosting company in Doylestown, PA, today has announced an agreement with Linux Online Inc. (owners of the Linux.org domain name) to create a new community oriented website, publish/maintain content and host the Linux.org site.

    The Linux.org community was started in 1994. It quickly grew in size and popularity to become the Internet’s leading resource for Linux information. Unfortunately, Linux.org went offline in March of 2011.


    Greg Cawood, IQnection’s President, is excited about the project. “I remember when I first came across Linux.org about 15 years ago” he states. “It is one of those resources that you keep going back to and it needs to be online so that people can find the info!”

    “IQnection is is currently writing the website code and rebuilding Linux.org from the ground up. We hope to once again become the Internet’s number one resource for those looking for Linux information. Our hosting team is on the site constantly posting and updating articles.”

    Michelle McLagan, Linux Online's President, is happy to be collaborating with IQnection. "I am proud to be working with IQnection to revitalize the Linux.org website. The Linux community has been missing a valuable resource during the past year and it is very satisfying to have Linux.org back online."

    About IQnection: IQnection is a web hosting, design, and advertising company located in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, just north of Philadelphia. IQnection began in 2000 developed by entrepreneurs Greg Cawood and Bob Campbell, two businessmen committed to developing and maintaining innovative, intelligent connections for clients to the Internet.

    About Linux Online: Linux Online is located in Ogdensburg, New York, on the beautiful St. Lawrence River. Linux Online was started in 1994 by Michael and Michelle McLagan and has been continuously involved in promoting Linux on the internet and through private projects.

    Yep - we're coding it right now - it's got some great features. We'll no doubt also use it to drive traffic here to the Forum.

    I think I see history repeating itself... this forum appears to be unmoderated and it's obvious that no one is maintaining the software either.

    Most Linux support sites bookmarked in my browser I do not visit.
    However, a few I do. Each has its personality as defined by its
    members.

    This one has become moribund, I post a quick reply, get
    a database error, go advanced and preview, then close and open my
    browser and the post is published. I look forward to its renewal.

    Looking forward to how this works out in the end. Everything is a bit on the overwhelming side at the moment though -- so many social/interactive functions haha.
