Admin Change for LinuxMusicians

Postby nathan » Sat Jan 04, 2014 4:18 am

Hello everyone! When I founded this board, I was in college and making music daily using a Linux box. I needed help and wanted to connect with other musicians that were using my favorite OS, so I made a place for it to happen. It's been amazing to see the growth and vibrancy of this community over the years.

Now, I'm married with two small kids and in a career that simply doesn't allow for me to make keeping up with Linux audio and music trends a priority. I'm also not able to be nearly as involved in the technical and administrative aspects of running this forum as I would like.

In order to keep things running well around here, Raboof has graciously decided to take over as the primary admin for our community. He has been an admin forever and one of our top moderators. He is knowledgeable, level-headed, and an all-around great guy. I couldn't ask for a better admin to take the reins.

Part of this transfer of responsibility will necessitate a change in hosting, which will probably mean some planned downtime. Stay tuned for further updates on that.

Thanks for taking the time and effort to invest in our little corner of the internet. I'm proud to be part of this community.

All the best,

Nathan

Respect !

Nathan, thank you for this great contribution to the community, LM is a first-stop every morning here at Studio D. So refreshing with that first cup of coffee ! :) I wish you Good Fortune in all your endeavors, and I hope you won't be a stranger here. You've done an admirable job with LM's administration, you've definitely earned your Primus Inter Pares badge to wear in the Linux audio world.

Blessings upon you & yours,

dp

Thanks for the kind words, and thanks to Nathan, all the other moderators and all forum members for making this such a great place. I'm glad and honored I can contribute by taking some more admin responsibility.

As for practical things:

  • I've done a test migration on http://lm.bzzt.net . Feel free to play around, do let me know if you encounter any problems.
  • The transfer of the linuxmusicians.com domain name is in progress. The new DNS has already been configured to still point to the old hoster, so that should be seamless.
  • Once the domain is transferred, I'll set this board to readonly, perform the migration again, and update DNS to point to the new hoster. This will not be entirely seamless because it takes some time for the DNS change to propagate. This should not take more than 20 minutes, but from my experience it may take longer. You'll be able to use the http://lm.bzzt.net domain in the mean time.

Late to the party as usual. It's odd how a family and kids do that to you. Many thanks Nate for your hard work with this site and your other Linux-related endeavors (I was also a fan of your Productive Linux podcast).
