You may have noticed a lack of new stories on OSNews the past week, and that’s because my fiancée and I had our first baby about a week ago. Since I’m making use of my ten workdays of childbirth leave as granted by the Swedish government, I’m not allowed to perform any work during those ten workdays (we’ve got another few hundred days of parental leave, too), which includes OSNews work. Since OSNews’ owner David happened to be on vacation with his family at this time, too, we were kind of left in the lurch.
Our apologies, but there wasn’t much we could do.
In any event, we’re learning how to be parents by leaps and bounds every day, and we’re taking good care of our little .deb. I’ll be back on duty coming Monday, so expect normal service to resume then. In the meantime, feel free to submit news items David can quickly and easily post – it doesn’t have to be perfect, as long as we give y’all some stuff to talk about.
Until then, I’m going back to installing and configuring Void Linux on my main laptop – I already use and love it on my POWER9 machines – and I’ll see you all in a few days.
Let me be the first to say congratulations.
And don’t worry too much about anything else then the baby. The first days are really precious.
Looking forward to your post under sleep deprivation 😉
Good luck to your sleep! 😉
First of all .. congratulations on the new baby. I hope the baby and mom are doing well.
I was wondering whatever happened to the website. This explains it all.
Beware, children WILL get in the way of the hobby. I bought a couple PDP-11’s last year and have had to mothball them since the arrival of my child in december, and to a lesser extent, lack of storage media for them.
I’ll try and write an article on my PDP-11 saga, maybe during the summer. Especially whilst the little one isn’t running around shoving jam sandwiches in the floppy drives.
