I am playing with the idea of creating a website similar to the FreeBSD
Diary. Basically a site to help newbies (like myself). I figured as I
learn, I could post what I learned on the site to help others. I assuming
there isnt one already in existence as I have searched and couldnt find one.
I think it may also help alleviate some of the more common problems being
Still a newbie myself, I am thinking about this as I am not sure how much
of the content on FreeBSD is applicable to OpenBSD. That is, I am
confident that in a general sense, most of it is applicable, but there may
be subtle differences that need to be explained. Is this a valid assumption?
If I do decide to go ahead with something like this, who would I have to
talk to get permission to use some of the blowfish art work on my site (I
like the art used on the OpenBSD Journal site). I dont want to step on any
toes if I decide I have the time to do this. Also, I think it would be
much more successful if I could find others to help out with writing
articles on different topics. I would be interested in hearing from any
one who is willing to help out.
Lastly, I also welcome any suggestions on what to name the site. I know
that OpenBSDDiary.com is available, but I was thinking the title could be
more original (actually, if this thing flies, I am going to contact the guy
who maintains the freebsd diary to see if he will give some tips, etc.)
I am eager to hear any thoughts or suggestions on this type of project. I
was looking at this as my way, other buying the cd (which I already did),
to help the project. =)
Sorry for the cross post, but I was unsure where exactly this belonged.
