Help Free Software Magazine - do you know Drupal and JQuery?

Thu, 2007-04-19 01:07 -- admin

Dear readers,

We are developing a new, funky Karma module for Drupal. We are doing it for Free Software Magazine, although we will release it under the GPL.

However, we need help. Tony, who is programming the module, doesn't know anything about Javascript and the module really needs to have some basic Ajax abilities. Basically, users need to be able to rate a comment by picking an item in a select box, and the server needs to receive the information without reloading the page.

Live in the UK and want a free book?

Gary Richmond, one of the greats at Free Software Magazine (read him here), isn't satisfied with just being a fantastic blogger and providing our magazine and readers with great content. He also wants to provide one lucky Free Software Magazine reader in the UK with a copy of Linux Pocket Guide by Daniel J Barrett, published by our good friends at O'Reilly.

10 free books from O'Reilly!

Sun, 2007-03-18 19:49 -- admin

Why do we love O'Reilly so much? It's not just new, high quality books like Linux System Administration by Tom Adelstein and Bill Lubanovic (coming out in April). It's also the fact that they have generously offered to send the first 10 copies off the press of Linux System Administration to 10 of our lucky readers! So not only will ten of our readers receive a copy of this book, they will receive the first ten copies of this book! Go on, get in the running to be the envy of your friends!
