    Had a great time in Nashville- besides very, very drunken Thursday and Friday nights with some folks I hadn’t seen in ages, Krissa and I went to the state capitol, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and the Parthenon. Yes, they have a full-size replica parthenon in Nashville. Sort of a turn of the century…

    CVS and I do not get along*, but despite that, Marcus’ rocking liveCD scripts are in CVS, including my changes to make them basically functionally equivalent to what I had before. I’ve also nuked my old crap. Marcus’s stuff + my changes *should* work, but I warn that it isn’t exactly tested in the current…

    Took most of the day off from writing to futz with the liveCDs. Given the current state of breezy, this was shockingly productive ;) I will definitely upload a 2.11 CD tonight. Has some rough edges (sound is busted, some X stuff is slightly funky), but Marcus Bauer’s awesome scripting work has made creation much…

    I’ve been reminded that Summit is rolling around again. It’s a very low key event, but should be a lot of fun. Dates, details, etc. are on the wiki. Come one, come all, but particularly come hackers- this one is for you.

    Frankly, it’s not that tough for ISVs to build native Debian packages, and if they can’t offer a deb, you can’t well expect them to support the RHEL-packaged version of their application on Debian. eweek hits nail on head about the new debian core consortium’s RHEL flirtation. In general, lots of people coalescing around Debian…

    Beautiful day today- spectacular weather. Spent three hours in the commons reading selections from The Economic Structure of Intellectual Property Law and getting some color, one of which I mostly failed at, and the other gave me a sunburn. Still nice, I guess :) Had dinner at Kashmir on Newbury (outside seating, of course ;)…

    Whereas previously I had blasphemed, and been known to say that saturday morning breakfast should be fresh french toast, waffles, or pancakes, I have seen the error of my ways. I am now a firm believer that saturday morning breakfast should be homemade mango ice cream. That is all.

    Had a really great bug day today- 50 or so people in channel all day, and a very, very active group in the morning- first four hours went by in a total blur. There are almost exactly 200 fewer unconfirmed bugs in our target areas than there were at the start of the day, which…

    @!#!#@!@!#@!#@!#!. poster ate my post. Hate it when that happens. Anyway… bug day tomorrow in #bugs; details on the wiki. If every reader of p.g.o closed an unconfirmed bug, we wouldn’t have any left, so come on by.

    Made the mistake of finally settling down with Harry Potter last night at around 11. Finally got in bed around 4am. And finished the book around 2pm. Very good; it isn’t just the characters that are getting more mature- Rowling is shifting her style as well, with less fluff (as much fun as it was)…
