The Fridge September 27, 2005

Posted by Carthik in news, ubuntu.
trackback

Go check out the Ubuntu Family Fridge. There is a lot sticking on it already. It is supposed to be the place to check for Ubuntu news, you know, the general kind that does not fall into a security notice, or release note or anything else. It is updated regularly by the looks of it.

I really wish they’d make it easy for outsiders like me to post a note on the fridge, too. Right now, one has to send an email, and as with other such websites, you bet someone else has sent the same info in a different mail before (and after) you. So much effort for so little return, really. The fridge is powered by Drupal, and I am sure more than one author (in fact a whole community) can submit articles to a Drupal powered site, and the submissions could be moderated, even.

The folks at Ubuntu seem to place a premium on security – as is evidenced by the “https” links for the wiki, launchpad and everything else. Does using a certificate really improve the security for a wiki – and does it really matter if what I send to the wiki over the internet is not encrypted – I mean, it finally is up there for everyone to see right?

Check the about section, they reasoned there that they want to first synchronise article commentry to also appear in the forums [www.ubuntuforums.org]. Give ‘em some time, I’d say. :-P

Although I like Drupal (use it m’self), I think I’ll stick to this blog for quick, trendy updates. Cheers mate for your work, it’s very much appreciated.

Keep it up,
Pascal Klein

No worries mate.
By the way, does this tips, tricks and news blog do link exchanges? ;-)

Cheers.

ubuntonista: It’s coming, we’re only just kicking it off… and it hasn’t even been officially announced yet. :-) I’m hoping to avoid having user logins on The Fridge itself, and anonymous story creation is not brilliant in Drupal atm, so a bit of tidying up is required before that happens. Either that, or we’ll adopt Launchpad logins.

Thanks Jeff – it just so happened that I spotted someone’s del.icio.us bookmark that led me to the website and I loved it. Thanks for letting me know about the fact that it is an up-and-coming site :)

t comfortable the particular paper hearts connected with almost
any haters out there, however it really
does supply style supporters some thing with much more actions along with tactic in comparison with they might be
used to. Even a child could work out that
the nationwide debt has always depended upon clash of clans hack tool no
survey to a certain extent, but now more that ever. Particularly, in the event the online
game is totally new, plus your pc looks her age, you
will be unhappy if you do not verify initially.
