Aw crap.

Sometimes crap happens and it just so happened that today when I was doing an unattended update to wordpress and feedwordpress for LinuxPlanet Oggs and Casts something twigged and deleted all the feeds. If you have a feed in one of those places getting syndicated, well, now you don’t. It looks to me like there was a category shift and I do see what I assume to be all the former syndicated participants listed in the blogroll. I am going to attempt to go through there and re-add everyone, however, if you do NOT see your feed show back up within a couple days, or something seems wrong with your content, etc., then please shoot me an email and we’ll get things straightened back out.

On January 18th, 2012, the TLLTS website will participate in the SOPA protest as will, lincware,
lincolnblogs, linuxplanet blogs and linuxplanet casts. Normal activity will resume on the 19th.

So today Dann sent me a message telling me that the sites hadn’t updated in like 20 days. Apparently he’s the only one that noticed.. :/

I fixed the feeds and we are all up and running now. At any rate, if you *do* actually use the service, whether ti is down or not, feel free to drop me a note and let me know how it’s doing now and again at linc dot fessenden at gmail dot com! 🙂

Please excuse the mess…

Something odd with the LinuxPlanet.Org blog site right now. Many multiple posts. I hope i have a handle on it and this is the test! Please disregard 🙂

Updates, updates everywhere. I pushed a bunch of updates to, my Blog, LinuxPlanet Casts and Blogs, LinuxForChristians, TLLTS Planet and the Lincware forums. Everything looks ok right now, but please let me know if you see anything strange happening (or not happening as the case may be). Thanks and you may now return to your previously scheduled rss feed.

I did it!

One month ago I decided to take the challenge and see if I could blog all month long for November’s National Blog Posting Month. I was absolutely sure that I would fail.

Amazingly enough, I did not.

So, what does this mean? Does it mean that I will continue posting an entry every day? Not a chance. Does it mean that I have somehow fulfilled my childhood dream of being a writer? Nope. Did it even help to make me better at writing? Well, that is subjective. I believe that it proved to me that I can muster the discipline to write something down if I need to, if there is a goal involved. Whether my writing style or content was any good is really your call, as I am slightly biased and sometimes overly critical as well.

What I would love to see come out of this exercise is encouragement for other bloggers. If I can do this, surely anyone can, and I do enjoy seeing posts from my friends on My challenge is for my friends there and you who read this blog to pick up the torch and whip into a blogging frenzy! Seriously though, it can’t hurt for linuxy and geeky folk to flood the web with some interesting stuff. It’s good exposure and great entertainment.

So, who’s next? Who will take my challenge? Dann? Pat? Allan???? 🙂

Your chocolate in my peanut butter

Just thought it was worth a mention that BashPodder and LinuxPlanet happen to go together particularly well. Just grab a copy of BashPodder and in your bp.conf file put the rss feed for LinuxPlanet Casts ( and you’re ready to rumble. You will get all the great podcasts who post to LinuxPlanet and because they are there, you’ll have a convenient place to catch all their show notes and notices too!

Coding FLB style.

In between bouts of making Linc’s World Famous Potato Soup, I had a few minutes to do some catch-up coding today on FreeLinuxBox. It desperately needed an rss feed, so that is what I coded up. How else are you supposed to know there is new stuff there right? Well, all finished and added the feed to, which you should be subscribing to if you aren’t already 🙂 If you are just looking for the FLB feed, you can find it at

Speaking of Free Linux Boxes, Russ, The Techie Geek, was the latest person to put a box up on FLB and he has a GREAT idea. He wants local pickup (because of weight no doubt), but he said he’d be wiling of delivering to the Ohio Linux Fest. Outstanding idea. If you, like me, have some boxes you are putting off giving out because of the hassle in shipping, perhaps following Russ’ example could be the answer!

Get your logo gear now!

With the help of RFQuerin, the internet’s own Open Source graphics master, I have updated the logo merchandise stores for The Linux Link Tech Show, Free Linux Box, and Linux Planet. It’s all great stuff so check them out and support a project by flying it’s colors on a T-shirt or maybe even a coffee mug. We don’t make a dime off this stuff, strictly publicity and it’s real nice to see someone at a conference wearing a T with a logo of a project your are involved with too!

A few people have asked about a way to make a donation to help with the costs here on any of the sites (,,,, etc). Since it’s time to re-up for another years worth of bandwidth and *I’m broke* I figured it’d be as good a time as any to put up a paypal donation button. You can find it at If you can see fit to help out at all, you get my eternal thanks and a promise for me to keep things going on my end 🙂
