    What happened to LinuxOrbit ??

    Anybody knows?? LinuxOrbit.com was one of the span off start up when many of us left LNO. I think the founder still hang out at LJR and probably this forum as well.

    LO dropped off once before and came back for a short time. GonzoJohn - John Gowin is his name. Have not seen him post anywhere, have not been in IRC.

    IIRC, he is some kind of musician. May be he got famous and forgot about Linux? May be he got too poor and became homeless? (JK)...

    Someone from Santa Cruz once told me that the reason why Santa Cruz has the most homeless than any city in California was that SC has more artists than any other city. Once they get going with their carrier, they move to San Francisco or Hollywood.

    It certainly true with "deadcows for cuties" band. I met them a few years back at LWE and chatted with them (too bad I wasn't the kind who is after autographs). They got featured in OC last year and all of a sudden they are well known. The last time I see them I can't even get close enough to tell which one of them was singing on that cute chick.

    Oh yeah, I remember Kenshi. Nice guy.

    LJR's IRC channel is (almost) dead. No one comes around. Whenever a newbie comes around, there is no one there to answer questions. I haven't been very active either.

    We fought what server to move for almost nothing since it's under utilized in many ways.
