Spilsby, Lincolnshire, United Kingdom, 2009/09/22 - JournalXtra.com, the crazy webmasters personal reference journal, has been re-branded and re-launched with a sleek new design.
JournalXtra, the "crazy little journal of something and nothing", to quote its author, has relaunched as an easy to navigate blog to house its easy to follow, step-by-step guides to using Linux, Open Source software and web applications such as Wordpress, Joomla and GIMP.
But that's not all, being a journal it includes tips and tricks for webmasters and administrators. There is even a legendary guide to Twitters 140 Mafia game (the only one that details the game's only cheat).
How has all this come about?
Fed-up with trawling the web to find simple, complete answers to simple questions like "How do I extract data from a large text file?", "How do I make an image transparent using GIMP?" and "How do I diagnose hardware problems in Linux?", the webmaster at JounalXtra decided to make public the answers he has discovered and worked-out so that others can benefit from his research and time through visiting his blog.
With a long history of assisting others solve their computing difficulties and find answers to the questions that niggle them, his motto is "Simple questions deserve simple answers"; and that's exactly what he delivers: simple answers with easy to follow, annotated examples with screenshots; and to make the process of remembering those answers as pain free as possible, he has created an FAQ section for all his articles.
Written in English with full translations into Spanish, Portuguese and French with more languages billed to arrive soon, you can take a look at this evolving re-developed site by visiting journalxtra.com/.
