lazyweb: I’m a little hesitant to ask anything here, given that my last posting on limburger resulted in this gem: the key to limburger is that you need to eat it with mayonnaise and raw (or at least rare) halibut.
Nevertheless, I’m looking for a machine to purchase to put in the North American GNOME Event Box. It has to be small, light, and run Free software well. Something like the Shuttle X100 is close, but I’m not going to be able to get the Radeon card in it to work. Mac mini’s are much better supported and a great size, but I would prefer something less ‘branded’. Having Apple hardware in the booth would confuse our message.
Alternatively, if someone knows how to change the top plate on a Mac Mini to a custom logo, I could totally go that route. (-:

cheeses: It turns out that limburger tastes as bad as it smells.

cairo: What an excellent dockudrama! Or maybe it’s just a dockumentary..
cairo (two): That post does point out akamaru, written by Kristian Högsberg. It’s a pretty nifty little physics model written with cairo. I don’t know how practical it is, but it’s pretty fun to play with.
passings: It was sad to see that György Ligetti died today. RIP.

whoops: Things you don’t want to hear your plumber say:
“Can you run downstairs really fast and make sure that there’s no water coming out of the ceiling. I’m not kidding!”
SoC: We ended up getting some excellent Summer of Code applicants this year. I’m mentoring the forms in evince project. It looks like it will be a lot of fun to complete. Over all, there were three SOC projects accepted to work on poppler. Two were in the GNOME camp, and one was a KDE project, and all three require modifying the PDF file.
