I wonder what do people buy most from zazzle. Are there any stats?

Speaking of Zazzle, foxbunny's stuff looks pretty awesome!

Great job on the newsletter Kensai, I really liked 'A Short History of Tacos'.

Yeah, it was awessome, but that one came from Dusty. So all the credit on the short history of tacos goes to him. wink

And thanks for the compliments.

OMG, I just had a great laugh, in the newsletter Dusty wrote: "Eli (Eliott for short!) has been a massive contributor to Arch for almost as long as I can remember." LOL, eliott for short.

As hard as it might seen, I actually never have the time to read the newsletter just until after I release them, even my own articles, I just write them and forget aboutthem until I release the newsletter and then I can finally read everything with caution and enjoying it.

I don't have specific stats, but the dark t-shirt is the most popular. The hooded sweatshirt is quite high on the list too, and we sell a LOT of stickers. The tux gallery is not selling as well as I expected; apparently people are more loyal to the Arch brand than the tux brand. :-D

I most certainly am. Philosophically, I resent using the penguin kernel.
It's just that Arch is so damn good, it has spoiled me for anything else.

The linux kernel can drive me crazy sometimes...

Hmmm, do you want to start ArchBSD Misfit? That is, FreeBSD + Pacman goodness + updated rc.conf?

I shouldn't have suggested that, I don't have the time to be a dev for anything right now.

Good job to the NL team, as usual. Dusty's article was great!

We can arm ourselves heavily, and hold the Arch devs at gunpoint until they see things our way. tongue

Pffft, throw your silly cars. My mecha-warsuit will shrug them off like snowflakes. Abandon that ridiculous Linux kernel and come to the BSDark side.

Re: Arch Linux Newsletter for July 01, 2008, Discussion.

Under "Forum Highlights":

"Cyrusm is new to Python and programming in general, he is looking for advice on how to become a "proficient software developement hobbiest in the open-source community" programmer."

Um the link here is wrong. It points back to the newsletter instead of to a forum thread. Also, perhaps you should add (sic) after "proficient software...open-source community" so that we know the spelling mistakes are intended.

Otherwise good job on the newspaper. It's good for me, who does not really track the mailing list much. :-)
