Ryan: Nooo! Don’t quit posting to your journal just because you got a complaint… Your quirky diary entries make me giggle, and I don’t often giggle. Baby Got Back was a favourite song of mine. You know how songs can remind you of people? Well, that one reminds me of my first high-school romance. Not healthy at all, huh?
Skud: Thank you for saying the word ‘mentorship’ again. For some reason, the word keeps coming up at the moment, both in chats about development and general life. There’s a bit of mentorship missing in both, methinks. I’m sure we can come up with a way of promoting mentorship in the FS/OS community – the more conversation in the mean time, the better.
Raph: Person tags! Thou art groovy.
ralsina: Before you read Xenocide, I hope you’ve read Ender’s Game and perhaps Speaker for the Dead… Ender’s Game is one of my truly favourite books. Soon enough it will be petrified on celluloid (or matter near enough) – shall it survive?
The SLUG Installfest went very well. Not so many Debian installs (until the end, when the gurus hung around), but heaps of Helix GNOME. Heaps. It was fun to watch the reactions…
“Wow, what’s that?!?”
“That’s Helix GNOME”
“It looks so… scrumptious.”
“That’s tigert’s fault.”
“tige- this Finnish guy who likes flowers.”
“Mmm. I can tell. Can I have it?”
Organisation for linux.conf.au continues apace. Within three minutes of my posting the recent press release, Jonathan Corbet of LWN managed to get back to me and have an entry on the daily updates page. The man isn’t human.
Ever more websites and no “proper” hacking. I must get over this, “If it appears on the INTERWEB it’s not real hacking” problem. I guess I’m just cynical and jaded. “Will this feature make me money?” “Will this upgrade cost nothing?”
Voluntary stuff is all that keeps me sane at the moment. Funnily enough, that’s starting to affect my lifestyle.
