The Article Database

Once upon a time, there was a great Linux community site called Every day on, dozens of volunteers from the Linux community would spend many hours of their time writing new articles, moderating comments and generally keeping the site looking like a professional resource, attracting several hundred thousand page views each day.

Unfortunately, for various reasons, no longer exists in that format, replaced instead with a mostly automated system that pulls content from elsewhere on the web.

One of the key things that made great, however, was that the vast majority of content on the site was published under the Open Content License. This allows for anyone to reproduce the content for free, providing the terms of the license are met.

On that basis, I've decided to re-publish (almost) all of the items that were in the main database at the point at which it ceased to publish new content (October 2001). This includes news items and internal announcements as well as full length articles; basically anything that was in the news/article system.

This gives the volunteers a chance to find a copy of their work, and also keeps the content available for the rest of the Linux community to benefit from and away from the bit-bucket.

Thank you to all those who contributed to the site!

If you find an item that shouldn't be here, then please let me know

ABIT Announces Siluro Graphics Cards and New Motherboards at Comdex '99
"ABIT Computer Corporation announced today a new family of graphics cards and new motherboard models. Indicating a new direction for ABIT, the company announced they will introduce their Siluro family of graphics cards based on nVidia's TNT/2 and GeForce256 graphics chips.
ABIT will also be announcing their long awaited Camino (Intel 820 chipset) boards at Comdex. "These have been a long time in coming, but I think it will be worth the wait, the Intel 820 chipset is just fantastic," assured ABIT's PR Manager Jeremy Smith. For the upcoming Intel 820 chipset, ABIT will introduce the CH6, and CX6.
This is a good move for Abit for two reasons. First, it's nice to see another player in the graphics card market since companies such as Diamond Multimedia and STB have been bought out and companies like Hercules (nearly) went under. Second, I'm glad to see that the Intel 820 boards are on the way. Intel has been riding on the BX chipset now since it was announced way back in April of 1998. (15/Nov/1999 - 5351 bytes)
