What's New
by Jim Mock <[email protected]>

As usual, things around here have been pretty busy. We've been working on a few different things (which unfortunately, aren't going to make it into this issue), such as changing the colors of the site (am I the only one getting tired of maroon and gold everywhere?), etc..

Here's a list of most of the stuff planned to eventually happen:

Change the colors of the site.
We will be using #252c72 and #dedede. The headers (i.e., the Date : Title table above this) will also have an outline around them. I guess we're just ready for a change :-)

Expanded news feeds.
We will be adding addtional sites to the news feed. If you have any suggestions for sites that should be added, please send them to [email protected].

Revamp the poll.
This one is somewhat of a back-burner, but I'm probably going to look at a few other ways of doing the poll. I think it also needs to be updated more than once a month; possibly weekly.

Browsable mailing list archives.
No promises here, but I'm thinking it might be nice to have this available. If this one happens, it won't happen for a while.

Banner ads, etc., but it will be mostly free*, and mainly aimed at community sites (i.e., Daemon News, The FreeBSD Diary, etc.).

* If you're a large company that can afford to pay for advertising, then you should expect to do so, especially if you are a non-open source company.

Other stuff.
I'm almost positive there is some stuff I'm forgetting to list, it never fails.

We are also interested in what visitors have to say about these things. If you think something is great, we want to know about it. If you think something sucks, we want to know that too, so don't hesitate to contact us.

Until next time,

- jim
