LTSP Cluster Website

Free Software No Comments »

For the past few months I’ve been working on the LTSP-Cluster team at Revolution Linux. Today we’re releasing the website so that we can tell the world what we’ve been doing!

LTSP-Cluster is a set of tools and plugins for LTSP that allows you to extend LTSP so that it can scale up to hundreds of servers and thousands of LTSP clients. It has a nice web interface for your LTSP configuration, does load balancing between your servers and more. It can even connect your LTSP thin client to a cluster of Windows terminal servers or NX servers, if you’re into that sort of thing. If you’re deploying LTSP soon, you’d probably want to investigate LTSP-Cluster, and I’m not just saying it because I’m involved in the project :)

It’s licensed under the GPLv3 license and supported by the LTSP community, you can also get commercial support *wink* *wink* from Revolution Linux where plenty of very skilled people are ready for your LTSP related needs.

Edubuntu Wiki Hug Day

Education, Free Software No Comments »

As Scott posted before, the Edubuntu Bug day went quite well last week. This coming Thursday (21 January) we’re doing a Wiki Hug Day to to focus our efforts on fixing things in the Edubuntu wiki namespace, it includes:

  • Fixing broken links
  • Removing horribly obsolete or broken pages
  • Moving pages which are in the wrong place
  • Prettifying pages
  • Mark pages that may need to be on the Edubuntu website instead
  • Any other improvements we can think of :)

We’ll officially be starting the wiki hug day from around 12:00 UTC to accommodate the time-zones of our current contributors. It will be co-ordinated in #edubuntu on the freenode network. If you’re familiar with Edubuntu and know a thing or two about wikis, feel free to join in and get involved!

Happy 2010

Free Software, Jonathan, Motorbiking 1 Comment »

Happy 2010 everyone!

I’m not sure how I’ll ever top the 2000′s, it was quite an action packed decade for me, it’s sometimes hard to believe that in 2000 I was still in school :)

I haven’t made any big goals or plans for 2010 yet, I guess I’m happy with the direction things are going at the moment,  in short I plan to:

  • Stay in Canada for a few months (probably over 2 visits)
  • Get my motorbike license (appointment is for 1 March)
  • Up my Ubuntu involvement more. Revolution Linux gives me at least a full workday a week for Ubuntu related stuff so this shouldn’t be hard :)
  • Continue getting fitter- been doing great at the gym recently and I’ve been going 3-4 times a week for the last 2 months

I feel very good about this year, hope it turns out great for everyone!
