Stuart Brown Deserves double congrats.

For toiling so hard for those Linux points.

We have a lot of respect for you on the HP-UX side.

Stuart,

I heard a rumor over on the HP-UX Forum that there was a Linux guru over here that just got himself a brand new hat. Congratulations to you! Well done!

Re: Stuart Brown Deserves double congrats.

Congratulation Stuart - I personally know that points are hard to come by over here... Not nearly as many questions asked as in the HP-UX forum. Keep up the good work.

Soon you'll be a Linux Royalty, for sure !

Hope to be with you in Linux top list (wish I knew HP-UX too !)

Re: Stuart Brown Deserves double congrats.

Really Jerome,

This is how I distract attention from my poor behavior Sunday.

Working the Linux forums can be frustrating, because of the low reward to work ratio. I've actually silently stopped contributing to the forums a few times.

Stuart is a genius who helped me through my early shakey days putting a web hosting business together. I am eternally grateful to him for that.

Re: Stuart Brown Deserves double congrats.

Yes,

We have a real community here and Stuart Browne is one of the reasons it exists.

I have thought of a few things Linux people we might do to build the community.

1) Let people in Linux know, this is a good place to solve prolbems. More members builds the community.

2) Make the community more attractive. When you post a question, check back and take the time to award points. Take a look at the HP-UX thread some day. You will see that usually more than half the threads have rabbits because problems got solved and the people providing them got recognized. The first step people should do is click on their own profiles, then the questions he/she asked and go back and clean up their threads. Heck, I once awarded Harry Brown 2 points for a good joke. HP has something there and the point system helps build the community. I have considerable oracle knowledge and don't use metalinks forums. There is a reason for that.

3) When you post a question check back.

4) When yuou solve a problem yourself post the solution. That improves the quality of information brought back by itrc searches.

Linux is growing because it helps people bypass the big fees of the Microsoft world. This community can benefit from that and facilitate it.

* steps off my soap box.

Wait till Stuart sees this.

Re: Stuart Brown Deserves double congrats.

What can I say!

Thank you all.

SEP, You're not alone in thinking that someone else knows a ton more than self. I feel that way every day.

A few months back, there was a big rush of the top 5 people (probably more) to get points (not sure what spurred it on). I was always thinking "My goodness, that Masanarii guy knows so much!" or "How did Sivakumar understand what that question meant", and the 5 (Kodjo, SivaKumar, Masanari, Albert and myself) were vying for points in the top 5.

I think the only reason I ended up on top is because I kept coming back. I enjoy the challenge of solving problems, even if they aren't my own.

In the other thread you pointed to, you say that the rewards ratio is low in here. I agree, it is, but when you do get 8 or 10 points, you feel really great (ok, so I'm a little bit shallow :P). I hope that others will soon knock me off my perch (and at the rate you are going SEP, you'll be here soon!), and that the competition will continue!

There are a lot of great people in these forums now, and the community is continually growing, and the knoweledge base is simply outstounding these days. As I joked in another thread, there's barely any questions I get to answer these days, someone else has usually already given the solution I'd say by the time I sit down at the forums.

I do know that I'm still learning things every day, and am greatful to others in this group who have different histories and experiences and points of view. The variety is truely eye opening, showing the wide range of possibilities that are out there.

So once again, thank you everybody here.

Jerome, I hope so. It's a slow rise though! You'll have your pointy-hat soon too ;)

U.SivaKumar, My thanks to you also. Your contributions here are invaluable.

Pete, heh. Don't know about 'guru'. Am still learning every day.. Besies, I'm still just a kid ;P Much too young for 'guru' status yet! (only 26)

Gary, yea, we do. Hopefully it will continue to grow, with the help of people like yourself.

Ok, now I'm gonna go find a corner to hide in and be all embarrased :P *hide*hide*

Re: Stuart Brown Deserves double congrats.

Just happy to be on the leader board Stuart.

HP-UX points are much easier, plus I'm better at it.

I am honored to know you and perhaps together we can make this little portion of the community a little better.

I appreciated your message that prompted juno to put me on the leader board.

Be well, never stop learning.

Congratualtions Stuart.

I have found that no of point givers on HP is more than in the Linux Forum. And with all that you top the Linux Forum points is a great acheivement.

Welcome to Hogwarts. Many congratulations and looking forward to learn more from you.

Keep going.

Cheers

Re: Stuart Brown Deserves double congrats.

Steven

I hope this forum will get famous in Linux world, I'm promoting it quite often...
trouble is that I'm a teacher, so my student keep sending SOS mails directly to my box instead of posting here...

I agree with you Stuart, here points are a real reward (try networking forum, you'll love 1 point reward :]]), when I try to answer a few HP UX stuff I know, I can never be at first to do so, questions are answered before I even can read them...

Re: Stuart Brown Deserves double congrats.

Jerome,

Jsut add an auto reply to your students or a signature that says something like this:

If you want a fast answer.

If you want an answer for someone who will bang their head on the wall until your problem is solved.

post your question to http://itrc.hp.com forums.

Just remember to provide a lot of details.

Re: Stuart Brown Deserves double congrats.

Good idea Steven,

I'll do it. Even if I know that they'll complain that they do not speak english well enough... like Delvalle, who is one of my students, and finally sent me mail in french.

But the idea of auto-reply is brilliant ! You would deserve a bunny for this (I'll post a question soon, watch me !), so they'll be compeled to use it.

Tks for that.

Re: Stuart Brown Deserves double congrats.

As far as Devalle goes, encourage him to try out his English.

My Russian born wife knows basic French, so it he wants to dual language his post, we can work it out. You don't learn english without using it.

In France, HP-UX/Linux admin menus/conf and stuff is in English right? We should be able to communicate shouldn't we?
