Car Go Bam!

I was just in a car accident today on my way to lunch. There were four people in my car (including me), and one in the other car. Nobody is hurt, and the damage to the cars looks relatively small. My car shouldn’t need anything more than some bumper work and an alignment (which it was due for anyway).

Rather than try to explain what happened, I present Exhibit A: a nice diagram by my good friend Ryan, who was in the front passenger seat of my car when the accident occurred.

Yelp == Love

I don’t think I ever announced this publicly, so I’m doing it now: A few weeks back, I appointed Don Scorgie and Brent Smith as full co-maintainers for Yelp. And here’s what happens when you add more hackers to the mix:

  • Chris Lahey’s patch to add Beagle-based search landed on HEAD. If you have Beagle, Yelp will give you love.
  • Don put some extra love into Chris’s original printing implementation, then committed it. So Yelp prints now.
  • Brent Smith has done a lot of work on the man page stuff. So, you know, if you’re into that sort of thing, maybe you should buy him a CD or something.
  • Don did some work on info pages. So, you know, if you’re into that sort of thing, maybe you should buy him a CD or something.
  • Brent and Don have both done performance enhancements, including an awesome patch from Don for the DocBook transformations. (/me smacks himself.)

That’s right. Yelp 2.14 will search and print. And I had almost nothing to do with any of this. Free Software, I salute you!
