Another day, another entry. Got my tickets and booking
recipets for my 16 day vacation on Guadalope and Barbados.
Was a brochure from one of the hotels which almost brought
tears of joy to my eyes. I am really going to Paradise in
about 11 days. Yippee.
Was a interesting article about
non-coding contributors on Advogato today. Personally,
it is my experience that coders are very grateful and good
at showing their appreciation when you do something usefull
for them, be it translations, RPM making or bug reporting.
(okay, maybe not bug reports
had posted an comment about Ewing
doing Tux, which lead me to notice that Ewing and a lot of
other people had certified Tigert as Journeyer. Well it
could be correct that Tigert is a Journeyer when it comes to
coding, but he is definetly a Master when it comes to being
a graphical artist. The question that comes to mind then of
course is if Advogato is a place for coders or for free
software people in general?
My impression was that advogato was supposed to be a place
for all kinds of free software people, and that people would
be rated based upon their area of expertise in regard to
free software not just on their coding skills, but I could
very well be me making stupid assumptions. Well enough
and Alan has
now put up the pictures from the Oslo trip, you will find
There is even a nice picture
of me in the batch.
I bought some small presentents today which I am shipping of
to Alan, Telsa and Michael as my way
of saying thanks for
them being such wonderful guests while here.
I started making RPMS of xmame and grustibus the
other day, which was a task I discovered was easier said
Grustibus was no problem in itself, but recompiling Xmame
was no easy task, at least not with the settings I wanted. I
almost got working solution now, but it is not as optimal as
I want it to be, luckily easter is coming up so I can waste
a lot more time on this issue
