services, and we do not create commercial or proprietary products and
The mapping and publishing of the local manufacturing supply chain is
progressed by using the Linux User Group (LUG) concept. We give the
traditional LUG a new focus on Manufacturing, and the new mission to
generate enough income to self-sustain and grow. The technology stack
includes all essential and some highly beneficial components such as:
- Debian-based DNS Infrastructure, YunoHost portals
- Uniform Webmin-based Administration, Policies
- Dokuwiki-based interlinked dictionaries
- Joomla!+Fabrikar enterprise-grade web forms
- ApacheDS (LDAP), BaseX (XML), Gitea (git)
- MySQL Business Logic repository
- Encrypted email accounts with aliases
- Moderated but entirely uncensored Hubzilla Forum
- 3D-printed prototyping projects
- A bartering network for talent discovery
When you implement FourOh-LLC in your production office, the possible
future transition to true, Industry 4.0 enterprise-level services going
to be significantly faster and cheaper. We recommend you give FourOh-LLC a
week of your time before you spend millions of USD on the Industry 4.0
Our main and currently only project is called the FourOh-LUG, and we are
looking for LOCAL participants in the form of Linux hobbyists and pros,
3D-printing enthusiasts, CNC, lathe and routing operators, CAD, CAM,
Drafters and Designers, and all related - for our sponsors, expert pool,
FourOh-LLC LUG members.
This instance of the Hubzilla forum is the home of the FourOh-LLC
Administrative and Technology Evangelist community. We provide governance,
the design and the implementation expertise for FourOh-LUG. If you want to
ask and learn more this is the right forum to join the federated networks.
We are not "left-wing", "right-wing", this or the other. We are going to
share with you the only relevant fact: we are citizens of the USA. We
design, test, prototype anything - including exotic technologies which
maybe used in harming another person. Do not bring your "personal opinion"
here, we are subject experts and we have no opinion.
Instead of opinions, we have relevant, practical, non-compromising skills.
Unlike your "personal opinions" what we build FUNCTIONS.
