Fedora Unity has released the DVD ISO Re-Spins for Fedora Core 5 Re-Spins for May 2006. These ISOs are based upon Fedora Core 5 and all updates released as of May 23rd, 2006. They are available for i386 and x86_64 architectures.

The Re-Spin task has been taken up by Fedora Unity to provide the Community with the chance to install Fedora Core with recent updates, which might otherwise be several hundred megabytes of downloads, already included. The Fedora Unity Project intends to release early and release often, with new Re-Spins provided early each month during the life of each Fedora Core release until that release is transferred to Fedora Legacy.

The Simo Group on GooglePages

As I am sure many of you are aware, Google recently launched their new web page creation service called GooglePages. You don't need to know any HTML or CSS to create your pages, they are made online using the builtin editor.

I thought I would give their service a try and I came up with The Simo Group a web page to summarize all my web sites or website in which I am involved.

Thanks, THP.
