Amazing error in the Greek Linuxformat website

Postby gbil » Fri Aug 17, 2007 8:22 pm

I just had to post it!!!

Here is the error I got trying to access the forum of the Greek LinuxFormat website (http://www.linuxformat.gr/forum):

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80004005'

Timeout expired

/forum/common.asp, line 261


I leave the comments to you guys, I'm just happy I only buy the British version of LinuxFormat.

That web address worked fine for me but they seem to write everything in Greek :?

I think the OP is referring to the fact that the Greek forum is running on a Windows server.
Bye, Rhakios

Hell, that is almost as bad as if the UK version produced the magazine on Macs! Oh, wait... :)
I cannot deny anything that I did not say.

Still, I prefer the Mac with it's Unix heritage over any Win-OS, derived from a ripped-off faulty design...

There's a Greek Linux Format?

Is it at all related to the real Linux Format or did they just rip it off? Also, why is the title in English when the rest of the cover is in Greek?

There is a Greek version of Linux Format! And yes, it is related to our mag, containing some translated articles. There's also a Russian version too. See 'International LXF' in the menu bar down the left!

Mike, you could save the company some money on Foreign Editions if you just printed the English edition with everything in uppercase letters and the instructions JUST READ IT MORE SLOWLY.

Now that I've saved the company a fortune, you'll be looking for a way to reward me I suppose...

Well, the Russian edition is exactly the same as the English one, but with the Rs the other way round!
