Eric’s new Nocturnal Slacker blog at LockerGnome!

Congrats to our fellow Admin at Scot’s Newsletter Forums (SNF) and Bruno’s All Things Linux (BATL), V.T. Eric Layton, who has a new blog over at LockerGnome called Noctural Slacker (his self chosen title name at SNF). Over at SNL, Eric wrote,

Possibly as a direct result of THIS, Ron Schenone of The Blade and Reflections blogs (member Rons here at Scot’s) was nice enough to personally recommend me as a blogger at Chris Pirillo’s Lockergnome site.

I’ve agreed to give this a shot. I’ve sent Bob Fogarty over there the info necessary to get started. My blog’s name will be Nocturnal Slacker. What else, right? I’ll post the link around here somewhere once it’s all set up. Hopefully, y’all will come and read my musings. I’ll be blogging about Linux, of course, but also general topics that grab my imagination.

It should be kinda’ fun. I’m a blog newbie (I know, Bruno. I know! 😉 ), but intend to make a go of it. I don’t have any worries about my writing skills; it’s material that I worry about. I hope to come up with entertaining stuff on a consistent basis. It’s more difficult than it sounds… ask any blogger.

I’ll keep ya’ posted on the progress…yes

Eric’s very first posting on the new blog is a beautiful tribute to Bruno Knaapan, who passed away in February — our fellow Admin and Admin/Senior Moderator of SNF’s All Things Linux (now known as Bruno’s All Things Linux as tribute/memorial to Bruno, may he rest in peace). I have added Eric’s newest tribute to the Memorial page here on my blog, Bruno … Remembering a dear friend.

Eric lives in Florida and also has a couple forums of his own that he Admins and is himself quite a Linux geek. He and fellow Admin Urmas from Finland have taken up the mantle from Bruno as Admins for SNL and Admins/Senior Moderators for BATL.

Eric, I wish you well in all you do, and good luck on your new blog over at LockerGnome! It has been added to my RSS feeds! They could not have chosen a better guy to add to their blogging ranks! :thumbsup:

Bruno Knaapen – Rest in Peace Dear Friend

Bruno, a great friend, Linux and Open Source Advocate and fellow Admin at Scot’s Newsletter Forums, has passed away.

I have updated my Tribute/Memorial Page to Bruno here. And a link to my other two postings regarding Bruno; my original posting about that Tribute Page here and the posting about the Bruno Knaapen Technology Learning Center in Austin Texas.

Bruno’s Tribute page can also be accessed at any time along the side navigation under BambisMusings Pages.

Until we meet again, Bruno…

A Monument for Bruno in Austin Texas

As Urmas, a fellow Admin at Scot’s Newsletter Forums posted about Ken/Helio’s beautiful posting:

A very touching tribute – one that comes with a heartwarming announcement – by Ken Starks aka Helios:

A Monument for Bruno

What a wonderful monument to Bruno’s life! Ken/Helio has just announced the initial planning of the Bruno Knaapen Technology Learning Center! It will be built in Austin, Texas, and it will serve those who need it most.

Ken/Helio’s posting about this wonderful Monument to Bruno will be added to Bruno’s page here on my blog along with Jack’s, Eric’s and any others that are posted.

Bruno … Remembering a dear friend

Bruno's sunshaded penguin avatarWith great sadness, I finally was able to put together a small tribute piece about Bruno, one of the best people I know … who will be leaving us soon. Here’s a quote from the piece:

Bruno, what to say of one of the most dedicated, patient, and selfless people I have ever ‘met’ on the Internet, or maybe even in real life.

Bruno, in many ways, you remind me of my Dad (rest his soul), and my Jim — which is a very high compliment, IMHO. There is another great Open Source guy, Klok who was of a similar mind set as all of these men — you can find his story here: Klok Memorial.

For those reading this article, who may not know who Bruno is, Bruno is a wonderful man with seemingly limitless patience and dedication. He is from Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. He has a family that he loves and that love him — and despite that, he was able to spend thousands and thousands of hours sharing his knowledge, or learning what he needed to convey to Linux Explorers day in and day out … to only God knows how many Linux Explorers (those who have never used Linux and desire to learn and explore Linux).

Read the rest here.

Bruno, you are loved by so many, and will be missed more than you know.

God speed to you, and may you have good days ahead, and ones as painless as possible. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, and your friends.
