Things look quiet here. But I've been doing a lot of blogging at dan.langille.org because I prefer WordPress now. Not all my posts there are FreeBSD related. I am in the midst of migrating The FreeBSD Diary over to WordPress (and you can read about that here). Once the migration is completed, I'll move the FreeBSD posts into the new FreeBSD Diary website.

Now that the forum has been running for a while, I thought I should add some notes to help you get the maximum benefit from the forum. You should also read the original announcement for details.
My tips
  • Only 20 messages are displayed at a time. You can see other message by using the "Newer Messages" and "Older Messages" links at the bottom right of the screen.
  • You can collapse the threads so you see only the first message in each thread. Click on the "Collapse Threads" links at the top and bottom of the message list.
  • When posting a message, take care with the topic. A topic which outlines the problem in a few words will get much better response than one that just says "help!".

Please read Greg Lehey's tips on messages at http://www.lemis.com/questions.html.   It is written with the FreeBSD questions mailing list in mind but the concepts and strategies translate very well to other venues.

If you have any other suggestions, please leave your comments.
