Happy New Year 2011 – From Geek and the Doll

by Ramesh Natarajan on January 1, 2011

Happy new year from me and my daughter

Happy New Year to all TGS readers. We wish you and your family a happy and prosperous new year.

Last year was an awesome year for the blog. Currently we have over 32,000+ subscribers. We produced lot of high quality articles last year on Linux and open source. I also published the Nagios Core 3 ebook.

I’m very excited for 2011 and I have tons of tutorials on Linux lined-up for this year.

I appreciate all the support giving by the regular readers of the blog. You all have motivated me in more ways than you know.

Ramesh, your doll is a real cutesy-pie. Tell her. And, she looks very naughty too! Here’s the same expressed in a language her geek dad would better understand…

$ echo “Are you a cutie-pie?” | yes “Yes, I very much am”$’!’ | head

Will look forward to your 2011 blog posts. A very happy new year to you both!

Happy New Year to you and yours
I have been using Linux since Ubuntu Hoary H.
altho i am mostly a gui user those first few years forced me to explore futher
into the background and your blogs have helped very much.
it seems that the terminal is very strict in its usage and it gets me confused when
what i enter doesn’t work. oh well i just have to have a list handy to refer to.
Once again Have a prospers new year
