    Had a decently productive day today. While continuing to wait for Ximian servers to recover from the move, I spent a lot of time looking at b.g.o. It’s been a while, and it feels good to plunge back in to something I mostly really enjoy and apparently have some bit of a knack for. I…

    rml: you sexy, sexy man. jdub: headspace clearance is good. jfleck: I guess I want to actively choose balance, instead of having it forced on me by burnout… that’s my fear. Anyway, back from vacation. Aside from losing the laptop and fighting a cold the whole time, it was really good. Reading outside in the…

    Since I can’t post to the xd-unstable blog right now, I’ll just mention that there have been a bunch of xd-unstable updates based on GNOME 2.5.1. Go forth and update. [Also, for anyone trying to get in touch with me, I have no reception in my mother’s house and my laptop appears gone for good.…

    In the ‘things I really, really didn’t need today’ category, I left my laptop at the X-ray machine in the airport today. Hopefully the TSA will have good news for me in the morning. [later] On the plus side, Andrew’s claim that the bugzilla upgrade is not far from being completed might be the best…

    I really love this time of year- I had a great time in NYC this weekend seeing old friends and doing more of the virtual-names-to-real-faces thing, and it’ll be very good to be back in sunny Miami this weekend. But I fear I’m reaching the point that lots of other monkeys have reached at some…

    On the one hand, it’s great that QT supports accessibility- making Free Software available to all people is important. On the other hand, I’m a little disappointed by the misleading KDE announcement that they have accessibility. The toolkit having accessibility is only one small step towards being accessible. Just a few off the top of…

    It’s pretty exciting to open up planetgnome in the morning see a bunch of new faces. Sri: thanks so much for re-starting the summaries. They are a really necessary thing for those among us who don’t open up planetgnome as their first link in the morning or spend all day in #gnome. Robert: again, in…

    murrayc: I can’t speak for everyone, but I have been helped a lot by talking to people from all over the world who share my sense of emptiness right now. Thanks to everyone who has messaged and shared.

    Ettore passed away suddenly last night. We will all miss him- it’s very hard to be a Monkey right now. I used to tell people that open source was a great working environment, because when I first got involved with open source (through LegOS) I met with and talked once with an Italian, and I…
