Whatever you want to call it but the mods have a habit of renaming them
That's a good working title. Feel free to send me PMs on your progress and if you have any questions. Of course you can continue to post here as well.
with all the recent questions on it in the OS section, has anyone thought of a "How to install linux in dual boot" guide? If not, id love to try to make one.
Sounds like I have the boss for a sponsor :good:.
would that include using VirtualBox to install on LInux as a safer option instead of dual-booting?
I think I can do that. But the whole guide needs approval first.
oh, okay, or someone else could do one guide about Virtual Box as a whole
yea, either way. I guess we can wait and see if they want the Vbox separate or put it in the linux guide.
If you think you can do it, go for it
will be around a month before its finished. but, ill start now.
ok, so working in the Linux guide. DO I just make a word doc till its finished then cut and paste? or do I start a thread in the OS section and just edit when I am working in it?
(yes, I know that it needs to be approved and all that before hand.)
Create a document off the forums first, be it in word, open office, note pad, word pad, whatever, and email a mod.
I know that I'm not a mod of the OS section, however if no other super mod/admin takes you on (I know that mep is fairly busy at the moment so may not be available), send me your first draft
ok aastii, I get to work immediately. Should have it done in a day or so, using Ubuntu as a basis.
Lol writing a linux guide on microsoft.
to me if its typed, its a word doc. (words on a document, i.e. word doc). I dont have office, so its not microsoft at all. But I see the humor. lol.
Tell me if you need any help or are just feeling lazy in writing a particular part I can write that for you.
I will keep that in mind. Thanks man.
You can contact any moderator regarding sponsorship of a tech guide. Preferably a mod that is active and has the time to work with you. If a mod declines (which is unlikely), don't take offense, simply contact another mod.
I wanted to write a guide on Principle of Programming Languages and some basics of Data Structures and algorithms and some features of the most common languages.
What do you think about it??
Any comments on the above. http://www.computerforum.com/175000-computer-forum-tech-guides-18.html#post1622211
