Quick Update.

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

Thomas Holbrook II | *NIXEDBLOG

Hey everyone, I figured I would offer a quick update concerning the magazine. I decided to keep everything at $1.95 until the third issue.  Then I will raise the price to $3.95 per issue.  Also, to the person who commented on Justin not following the recommended format, thank you for doing that.  For those who wonder why I allow Justin to post, it is for a few reasons:

  1. I count him as a friend, and I decided to do him a favor.
  2. I want to be as inclusive as possible.  I have offered other people the opportunity to blog here as well.  That offer still stands.
  3. Justin offers a different perspective.  Of course I do not agree with everything he says.  However, the one important thing that can come of him posting is to cause people to think, talk, discuss, etc…. The same goes for me posting.

If you would like to write here, feel free to let me know. is now open.

If you remember a little while ago the Wikipedia informed me that I had no freedom of speech there. After that I started Then I got a phone call from a Wikipedia attorney that informed me that I needed to change my name.

So I sat up a new site at called I was searching for a logo similar to the Wikipeida‘s Puzzle sphere except that I wanted it to be more open. I found a logo I could use on

I decided that I would not put down the Wikipedia but rather allow other sites to do that for me. I also allowed the Wikipedia to state it’s own definition of what it was by quoting them.

I got several responses to this post and even though the responses were negative it’s still site content which means my site is growing.

From i’mnothere:

“I’m sorry you haven’t learned anything, but I do have a suggestion. I sometimes follow the nixedreport, and I recall your friend asking posters to put in a certain format for their name as the author. You haven’t been doing that. Maybe it is ok with him, I don’t know, but I sure would want to not be associated with the posts you put there.”

Last night I submitted my Wikipedia alternative to several groups looking for a Wikipedia alternitive. Hopefully this will spark some interest and get the thing going.

To join go to and click Join this wiki.

A list of links to other sites that have the same problems with the Wikipedia:
How to search without using the Wikipedia in Firefox!

Also if you are having any problems in the Wikipedia excluding you at all or posting something that is wrong just put “TELL THE WIKITRUTH” in your message without the “” and with the capitals and it will have these people looking at your page in no time.

Wikipedai Announces: “you have no freedom of speech here” Says Sandstein

Sunday, May 4th, 2008

The Wikipedia Administrator Sandstein announced on 08:44, 4 May 2008 (UTC) here that “you have no freedom of speech here”. This was totally unexpected. Now I can confirm that what my friends said bout the Wikipedia excluding people was true. I had always been under the impression that anyone could edit the Wikipedia and that it was free and open. I had no idea it was a closed source entity. I can’t find anything in their policy or agreement that explains where I have violated it to be “blocked indefinitely from editing in accordance with Wikipedia’s blocking policy for vandalism” did I spray graffiti on the web page or put up porn? NO! So what did I do wrong?

In their words I:

Used the user name usacomputertec,

Ultumix GNU/Linux is not notable enough to be in a dictionary, (Two references to notability: The LinuxVault and The 2008 Olympus Rally (X-Games Tryouts))

Ultumix GNU/Linux is bad because it is trying to make money? Ubuntu sells support services and I don’t require money so what’s going on here?

Someone used the term “too spammy”. I didn’t spam anything. I wasn’t selling anything.

And they hate my guts (I think).

So what is the alternative? The Open Wikipedia

So if you go to the Wikipedia to post something remember not to put on the wrong colored T-shirt, tie your shews with your left hand, or use anything but Microsoft products or you might start going bald like me. lol.

Ultumix Has Been Nominated for Deletion.

Saturday, May 3rd, 2008

I don’t know how to accept this award so I’ll start by thanking everyone involved.  Gwernol was so kind. I could not have done this without him. He said that my username: “usacomputertec” that I’ve had since September 2005 according to
the Wikipedia’s wrecords is in violation of the policy that says you can’t advertise using your user name. I pointed out that my user name was created before I changed my name of my business this year to USA Computer Tech but he didn’t care. I asked him if I had to change my skype name from usacomptuertec too so that I could post it as a place for support. He said he could let that one go.

They hate me, they really, really hate me.

He said If I changed my username I would be ok and he has been messaging me back and forth very quickly to resolve this issue but now it seems he has stopped for now. 🙁 So it does not look like Ultumix will be able to go on the Wikipedia.

“The article Ultumix has been speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This was done because the article seemed to be about a real person, organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, but it did not indicate how or why the subject is notable, that is, why an article about that subject should be included in Wikipedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the notability of the subject may be deleted at any time. If you can indicate why the subject is really notable, you are free to re-create the article, making sure to cite any verifiable sources.

Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable, and for specific types of articles, you may want to check out our criteria for biographies, for web sites, for musicians, or for companies. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you have any questions about this. NawlinWiki (talk) 21:43, 3 May 2008 (UTC)”

“You have been blocked indefinitely from editing in accordance with Wikipedia’s blocking policy for vandalism, use of Wikipedia for personal promotion and advertising. If you believe this block is unjustified you may contest this block by adding the text {{unblock|your reason here}} below.”


I guess I won’t be on the Wikipedia any time soon but if any of you Wikipedia users out there want to send my thanks to Gwernol just click on his name here and send him a message. Thanks Gwernol for the Nomination.
