      Thanks Micheal. This site consistently gives out information all week long. And when there is to much information to handle, one can always count on the trolls on this site to provide comic relief!

      Also, why don't you include more guest articles? I really enjoyed the one about Wayland myths and facts. Plus, that one article generated almost 300 comments. I'm sure the fact that at least three knowledgeable people were answering questions in the thread helped a lot. Still, that must have been a lot of ad views.

        It's all a matter of who emails in guest articles... I don't go out asking for articles to be written hence they're likely needing compensation but whoever emails me and offers to write an article.

            Personal account? I'm not even a gamer. d2kx is just a longtime Phoronix reader, had been asking me to create a Phoronix Steam Community,. and I made him a moderator.

              Glad you enjoyed The Wayland Situation, CTown I've thought about offering to write an article once a week or so (Probably Fedora, KDE, or Systemd focused when possible) but that plan got shot down recently when classes dumped a crapload of work on my head

                How about a Flattr integration on Phoronix?

                  Re: VAC in one game, that's a long story :-) You can ask me directly if interested. I asked Michael to set up the Steam community and will help running it, as he is a busy man :-)

                    No man, since you are a moderator, you should explain yourself in public. Fuck cheaters.

                      I'd like to just wire real money to your account to become a premium member. Why not?

                            36 $ worth in a day

                            Now we can get excited in two ways:
                            - does he hold, and if so, for how long?
                            - will benchmarks start to include mining?

                              I've got myself a ban in one game and on purpose during last holiday/christmas break, because I had and still have a lot of university work to do and was getting sucked into playing particular game a bit too much. This was an easy way out for myself. On a side note, my university work involves an Oculus Rift-enabled game for Linux.
