Amateur Radio forums, now with tech support! (I hope)
Have you ever had that question, the one that you just know someone else has solved, but you cannot figure out the right words to put into the query so that Google will spit back the right answer? Or worse, you just know deep down inside that someone has not only wrestled with the problem, but solved it and they just never got around to writing up the solution and posting it somewhere for everyone to see?
If, like me, you hate documentation, especially when it comes to resolving your own problems, this fast becomes a real issue. And while I certainly do not have a silver bullet that will help you with your documentation issues, where it comes to matters of Amateur Radio and Linux, I might be able to provide you with a sounding board.
A couple of days ago, I received a Letter to the Editor with just such a question. The type that needs an answer, but that I certainly could not answer. So I created a forum post with the question and I now ask for your help! And I promise I will only ask once! From here on, you should check out the virtual ham shack postings!
Got a question? Got an answer? Give and give back! We are all in this together!
UPDATE: And that is how it works! Thanks to Russ, K5TUX for posting a possible answer (and all the great stuff he and Richard do at Linux in the Hamshack!).

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
