New site, Planet GNOME and LUGRadio Live

Firstly, after my custom site punched me in the face one too many times, I have moved to WordPress. My old site was becoming a little too unwieldy, and the benefits of moving to WordPress outweighed the disadvantages. So, check out www.jonobacon.org and its snazzy new design. :P

Secondly, hello Planet GNOME!

Finally, LUGRadio Live 2006 is in a few weeks, and the excitement is hotting up. It was mentioned on El Reg and more and more people are blogging about it and getting all hot under the collar. Two days, over 40 talks, over 15 exhibitors and entirely driven by the community, and all for a fiver to boot. Its on the 22nd and 23rd July 2006 in Wolverhampton, England, and will be a blast!

    Nice design! Seems a bit slow at the moment though?

    Yeah it is pretty slow – we are having some problems with our server. It seems that some muppeteer is DoSing the box.

    Love the clouds. They seem a little more ethereal than one would expect from a metalhead.

    I shall refrain from any “I wonder who could be DoSing your new site.” But it does add a proof point to the “everyone hates” conjecture.

  • jono

    Ted – we know you are responsible for the DoS attack, and the feds are on the way round. Its funny, when I reported you and you l33t|-|aXXX0r nick, they knew about you. Something to do with crimes against goats…?

    :D

    Nice site, although the menubar at the top seems to be a bit ill formed. Any chance you and the Reverend could do a show in the style of the Archers?

  • jono

    Wafaa – interesting idea, and I am sure Brother Haeger would be keen on it. Next time we hook up we should have a go at it. :P

    Looking good :)

    Re: the DoSing – jedimoose.org got hacked the other day, so keep a careful eye on what’s going on. In particular, check that none of your PHP files have been changed without your knowledge.

    Nice to see you on the light side blog-system-wise, Jono. The style of the used theme feels fresh. At least I have not seen it elsewhere before. All in all an improvement over the old version. Now, how will your “arch-rival”, the internets very own Ted “The Stallion” Haeger, counter your deed?

    Spread the love!

    Best regards…
