      Wizard having Internet dropouts, may be unavailable. I'd turn my ISP into toads but I'm not sure how they'd go with their keyboards then.

      Hi What recommendations do you have for an absolute Linux beginner who feels Windows 10 has forced me to look to an alternative OS?

        Hi Shaun and welcome to linux.org :) . Go to https://www.linux.org/forums/getting-started.148/ and at the right hand side choose Start Thread and repeat your question. Someone will be along soon, may include me (sipping on a Sunday morning coffee in Oz)

      hi,
      What modules do you recommend in linux for a DNS server that uses a graphical panel for register a record(such as CloudFlare) and use database (for example, MySQL) instead of zone File?

      4000km road trip? That’s how to do it.

        That would take me a long way around the UK, wouldn't it, Nobby? I have to update that, it was 4 months ago, lol.

      My crystal ball says you have some more Trophy points coming up in the very near future! Congratulations in advance for making 1,000 posts on the forums. You talk almost as much as I do! :-) But you usually make a lot more sense! ;-)

        You stole my thunder, I was going to say "So now I have the 2nd biggest mouth on the Forum", lol. But that has been the way for some time, hasn't it? It's an honour and a privilege to be here, and enjoy such good company :) Roll on 2,000!

      Hey Wizardfromoz, I just checked out your homepage https://wizardfromozblog.wordpress.com and was curious to if this is an ongoing project? From what I can tell from looking at so far is that you are wanting it to be a place for Linux users to hangout and share information, is that correct?

        Hello Jake and welcome to linux.org :) That is so, but I have not had time to do it justice. I hope to begin to remedy that in the next few weeks. Feel free to start a conversation with me if you have further questions in that regard. Cheers Chris Turner

    [​IMG] If I'm not here, I'm working on The Blog, https://wizardfromozblog.wordpress.com/ , or having a beer ... or both :rolleyes:. . :):) THOUGHTS FOR AUGUST 2018 1. Enjoy your Linux, but always respect the right of others to enjoy theirs the way they want, it is all about freedom :D. 2. Keep an open mind, and be prepared to entertain ways of doing things differently. 3. Even Linux can become boring (Who said that :mad::rolleyes:;)?)
