    Is there already a forum were we could go to and see what kind of things people are doing with their linux boxes? Say projects, like building MP3 servers for car, home etc.. Or Building a battlefield 1942 linux server or even having linux run your coffee machine, stuff like that. I know there is already sites like that on the web. But I think it would be cool to see what our linux community is doing with linux. What do the rest of you think? :

    good idea

    I think that would work with the added idea of being able to attach certain files. so that you could attach a tar of your code of config files.

    This could really be great if you expand this a little. Lets I create an entry for my laptop compaq evo n1015v. then create an entry for my X configuration and upload the file. anyone with the same system can just download my file and their ready to go.

    I know this seems similar to source forge - but to be honest the source forge interface is weak. In essence we would be making a catalog of pre created linux systems. people just buy the hardware - base install and download the relevent conf files and or program code as required.

    How do we review them? I would not like un-reviewd files being uploaded to this server. Not just for the secutity issues but just to know if they work or not this would be a project in its self. We want to offer a qulity service what would happen if some lamo files get in the reputation of this forum will be tarnished.

    ratings

    new uploaded files would be rated as untested. after that every user of an acceptable level - say guru. can rate the files. so users would know the quality of what they are downloading.

    Sounds like a good idea i dont think that there would be much intrest in reviewing config files But you could pass it by J (Are you reading this and see what he thinks.

    Speaking about Compaq Evo, I already have a page about it
    (go to my signature to find out )

    And about the idea - it's just great. Anything going on with that recently? I'd be interested to take part in it, anyhow, so let me know.

    We are looking at the possibility of building an add-on to the forum that would allow for most of the things suggested here, but nothing has been decided in concrete as of yet.
