The (A for Australian) ABC‘s current affairs show, “The 7:30 Report”, interviewed his mathjesty a couple of days ago, and
the video is now online (yay Auntie), as well as the transcript.
Yours truly makes a cameo at around the 4:15 mark, exposing our dark and violent past. Hi, mum! I’m on the telly. Do I really sound like that? Strewth!
Linux munchkins that want  to pull down the 18MB .wmv should do something like this:
 Why would they want to do that? I dunno. But then again, I don’t know the 12 year old nameless fangirl gushing over “meeting the smartest guy, practically, in the world… wow!”
P.S. I love Nautilus’ cute thumbnail, complete with sprocket holes. Yeah, every decent OS does it, but it’s still pretty sweet.

Half a year ago, before its first stable release, the Deskbar shed its icon du jour, a shiny, blue arrow pointing into a bar thingamajig. Oddly enough, it appears to have re-surfaced as a proposal (in the blog post’s comments) for a new ‘save’ icon, given that the, uh, iconic floppy disk doesn’t reflect real life these days.
Gee that Onion Guy gets around.

It’s been a quite a few months where nothing happened with superswitcher (or actually anything at all from me on the OSS front), but my eleventy-half loyal users will be happy to know that it now has a subversion repository and issue/bug tracker, thanks to code.google.com. Already, a bug (Doesn’t work when Num-Lock is on) has been filed and the one-liner fix has been committed.
Ah baby steps, back on the path to world domination. Now to contemplate my massive deskbar to-do (or at least, to-look-at) backlog…

Dusting off my archives of the last millenium, I came across the records of my old comrade and El-Presidente-in-Exile, “Big Sexy” Ryan M (not to be confused with “Sexual Life” Catherine M). This is his story.
