A Lust for Linux

A great deal of you started reading/watching my stuff based on my Linux tutorials. That’s why I completely understand how you’d like for me to start making tutorials again. I feel your pain, which is why I’m going to go ahead and give you your present early this year by making the formal announcement:

Soon after the start of 2010, I will be producing video content for

Edit: The guy whom I was working with at #Linux .com has lost his job so my future on the site is uncertain now.. Damn the economy. ='(

They will be a bit more advanced than my previous tutorials on Ubuntu and distros of the like, but I know you can handle it. Hell, half of the reason I’ve gotten to the knowledge level I have is because of the unyeilding support of you, the Linux community. My videos will be on a volunteer basis, and we expect them to be a weekly affair as they once were.

I can’t wait to start making them again for you guys, and I will let you know when the date comes closer. However small, I hope that this is a welcome gift for the holidays!  🙂

With love,

    Nixie – you really need to get one of these: (The tat that is, not the lingerie…)

    Look forward to your posts re: advanced Linux stuffs. Merry Christmas!!

  5. Hi Nixie,

    I have just started using KDEnlive fairly heavily, thanks to your tweets. I would love to see more detailed tutorials on KDEnlive. It is a great program, but it really takes someone with your experience to make it comprehensible and comprehensive.

  16. ezueff says:

    I really enjoyed your past tutorials. I think that they were very well done and look forward to more. Thank you.

  17. Great deal for you Nixie, you’re totally awesome.

    I always loved your Linux vids, they have been very helpful… and having Nixie as a teacher is like a childhood fantasy…. “I’m hot for teacher!”

  19. Ziriako says:

    I like your tutorials

    and your eyes 🙂

    thanx for

    the help

    I’m sorry to hear about… the site still holds a lot of promise, but it seems as though they’re slacking off again after a big re-start.

    They have some pretty cool forums, though, and they’re starting to get busier with daily posts.

    As cool as Ubuntu is because it’s currently the most popular, I hope you’ll review other distros in your videos when you get back to doing them. Since Ubuntu insists on putting experimental Beta software in their “ready” releases by default, I wouldn’t recommend it for newbies AT ALL! Newcomers to Linux are not to be treated like unwitting laboratory rats, being used to shake out the flaws of untested software! I send all my Linux newbie friends to MEPIS ( for a rock-stable, elegant, awesome first experience with Linux!

    Looking forward to more of your stuff (whether on or not),

    Hi Nixie

    I keep seeing in your Tutorials an effect that I was amazed by

    After some research in Cumpiz Fusion website I seen the screenshot of it:

    – Beam Up
    – Burn

    I keep getting close to finding how to get it on my computer through research, but there’s no one that I’ve found up to now that shows the settings to get it

    Could you please tell in steps how to get it
