In the event you missed out on participating in last month's Black Friday deal for joining Phoronix Premium to enjoy the site ad-free and multi-page articles on a single page while helping to support continued operations of Phoronix, the deal has returned for Christmas week and marking the end of the year.
Here's a last call that if you wanted to participate in this year's Black Friday / Cyber Monday holiday deal to help support Phoronix, today is the last day of the sale.
It's that time of the year with "Black Friday" this week and the start of the holiday shopping season. As usual, there is the annual holiday deal for Phoronix Premium to enjoy it at a discounted rate. Unfortunately the state of the ad industry and rampant ad-block use continue to greatly hurt the sustainability of the site while Phoronix Premium allows for enjoying the website ad-free and multi-page articles on a single page.
Just as a friendly reminder the Phoronix Premium sale is ending this weekend as our autumn "Oktoberfest" special for supporting the site and enjoying the site ad-free and multi-page articles on a single page, among other benefits.

For those in the US, Happy Thanksgiving. As usual tradition for marking the US Thanksgiving and "Black Friday" / "Cyber Monday" start of the Christmas shopping season, I am once again running a Phoronix Premium special to help support site operations.
While Oktoberfest was once again cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic (then again, due to the state of the ad industry / ad-block users we haven't had any European meet-up / open-source gathering in years), the wiesn would have kicked off this past weekend. So as is tradition, there is the Phoronix Premium Oktoberfest sale where you can join the ad-free service as a reduced rate. If you enjoy the daily, original Linux and open-source content on Phoronix with plenty of benchmarking, you can do so at a reduced rate.
Just some quick, friendly holiday reminders.
In marking the US Thanksgiving week, the Black Friday / Christmas shopping season, and just another week grinding away during the COVID-19 pandemic while seeing depressed ad rates on top of ad-block users hurting our ability to continue producing new and exciting Linux/open-source content, here is our Phoronix Premium special for the holidays to show your support while getting discounted access to enjoy the site ad-free, multi-page articles on a single page, and other benefits.
If it weren't bad enough having to deal with the pressure applied by ad-blockers over the years, as a result of uncertainty around the novel coronavirus, ad-rates have been depressed further. This impact was outlined at the end of a recent article while there was an inquiry about any Phoronix Premium special during this time, so here is the COVID-19 deal for Phoronix Premium for $19.
For those that enjoy our daily open-source/Linux news each and every day of the year along with all of our original Linux benchmarking / hardware review content, you can show your support this Valentine's Day with a special offer.
Just a friendly reminder that if you wish to show your support in 2019 and take part in our Christmas / New Year's deal, time is quickly running out.
So far this calendar year on Phoronix has been more than 3,400 original news articles on Linux/open-source and more than 260 featured multi-page articles / Linux hardware reviews. From 2010 to date that count becomes more than 27,950 original news articles and more than 2,800 featured articles. But due to the continued use of ad-blockers by much of our audience, it becomes an increasingly tight ship to continue operating and producing new content each and every day. So for the Christmas / Hanukkah / end-of-year holidays, here is a way you can show your support while enjoying a great deal.

This week marks Phoronix.com turning twelve years old! I've been working on a number of special articles and such for publishing in June, but to get things started here's a special for you.
To the wife on April Fools' Day I told her I was going to take the day off of work... Hah, what a joke. But led me to generate some statistics on the number of Phoronix articles each day and figuring out when was the last time I didn't write an open-source or Linux articles in a given day.
