If the other two sites self destruct or start a new "beta" fiasco, I'm sure we'll get some some renewed interest - but for now, yes, we are sleeping. I still use the site quite a bit every day to read RSS feeds so the site is definitely not dead. I also have a pretty big backlog of code changes to push up (probably around the release of the next Ubuntu LTS in April.)Of course, I would not be opposed to a new editor volunteering and posting some fresh stories.

Most articles are politics and flame bait. The few technical articles are massively inaccurate. The discussion is nothing of value EXCEPT for the handful of people who explain why the article is BS. The red site was never what I wanted. It's not a tech site, or particularly intelligent at all. Just HuffPo with user comments...To get a little fix of tech news I hit up The Register, but something has really been lost in the downfall of /. and the failure of anybody else to fully pick up the torch and run with it. I certainly haven't been commenting anywhere, and I'm sure many thousands of other knowledge people are keeping their insights to themselves these days, too. A real shame.

Seems I turned off too many and accidentally turned off the backup computer that moves the database backups off the live site. After a few days, the untransfered backups exceeded the storage capacity of the live site and started to cause problems. Woops! Sorry for any inconvenience as the site was down on Friday-Saturday while I was traveling.I'm looking at a few changes to the backup process that should prevent these types of problems in the future.
