I'm not a mac zealot. Really.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks… Work, outside activities, visitors, etc. First thing. I have posted the poll for the social meeting. Visit the site and log in to vote. Voting closes in 2 weeks. Just enough time to make a decision and send it vis the mailing list. Next thing. I need a new job. My contract ends in just over a month and I don’t have anything lined up yet.

LinuxFest 2007

I was sure I had posted about this, but I guess I never finished or I dreamed about it. Pretty much the same thing I would guess.

Site errors - possibly nailed

New stuff for home system

Another post where I have no idea who wrote it. Today I went and bought a new monitor (LG L245W 24", 1920x1200, picture-in-picture capable) and a 500 GB external USB drive. The monitor is great - it worked after a dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg on my Debian Sid system. The hard disk came pre-formatted for NTFS. I’m contemplating the number and sizes of partitions, once I’ve decided that then it will be reformatted to use ext3.
