Work for Linux Format!

LXF

If you've read Mike's farewell blog post on the LXF site, you'll know that he's heading off to WeiƟbier-land. Well, this opens up a new position at Linux Format Towers -- we're looking for a Digital Media Editor. In a nutshell, you'll be the next Mike, creating the multi-booting DVD, writing articles for the magazine, helping out with the websites and buying the odd round at the pub.

What skills do you need? Well, we're very proud of our coverdiscs that dual, triple and (even sometimes) quad-boot totally different distros. So you need to know your way around isolinux.cfg (combining multiple boot options into one file) , understand mkisofs, and feel at home breaking apart and repackaging initrds. If you can show us a disc you've made multi-booting different distros, we'd be very interested in talking to you. Outside of the disc, we're looking for someone passionate about Linux, brimming with awesome ideas, who loves to write and share the enthusiasm we have.

And maybe someone on the

And maybe someone on the podcast too?? Please keep the podcast going. Good luck to all candidates who apply. I hope you find a worthy replacement for Mike, if that person still even exists.

Mike's leaving a formidable legacy in his wake. Will the coverdisks ever be as good again?
Hard to imagine anyone doing that job but Mike.

Yes! No!

I'm *really* close on this one. Let's see:

"you need to know your way around isolinux.cfg"

Erm, nope.

"understand mkisofs"

I can use K3B!

"and feel at home breaking apart and repackaging initrds"

What on Earth is an initrds?

"If you can show us a disc you've made multi-booting different distros"

Lulz!

"we're looking for someone passionate about Linux"

Yeah, that's me!

"brimming with awesome ideas"

...what, with regard to Linux?

"who loves to write and share the enthusiasm we have"

I do love to write! I email people all the time AND I use Twitter!

I'm gonna apply.

I want the job

I have no experience other than using Ubuntu since 7.10.

I won't move down south.

I'm not serious enough to write seriously.

I can't use a Mac (in fact I despise all things apple even more than MS).

Other than that, I'm perfect for the job. When do I start?

Mike Leaving

Well there goes the life of the party!
