About FNL

FNL started from a joke at a game night – instead of the football themed Friday Night Lights, why not the nerd themed Friday Night Linux? Falseflag, with his poor impulse control and tendency to collect ridiculous domain names, immediately bought fridaynightlinux.com

For accuracy, we probably should have called it Thursday Night Board Games, but that’s not nearly as catchy.
