Common questions

You say you're a community, what does that mean?

Our members come together and communicate on different platforms. We have our knowledge base for sharing how-tos and ways of solving concrete issues, mailing lists for more lively discussions and cooperative problem solving; and then there's a general IRC channel for socializing and all things alike. We also meet physically from time to time, to share knowledge over a beer, or go deep down on technical topics and solve real tech issues.

I need more RAM or HDD space. Can I get more of it?
