So I am now making a new entry to replace an old one :)
Seems like Helix Code employs a new person each day, those
guys are really aiming at getting somewhere fast. Only part
that worries me a bit as that the focus of these developers
will be moved to align with the Helix business plan which
might leave other important part of GNOME without enough
developers. Then again I think the added value that Helix
brings GNOME will probably bring in a lot more new
developers as GNOME gets better at a lightning pace. People
have a tendency to be drawn towards succesful projects I
Did get involved in the cschtml/gtkhtml discussion on the
gnome-list, from reading the posts here on Advogato it seems
like this has been discussed elsewhere too. Noticed btw.
that the gconf dependency of gtkhtml was removed in CVS
This Debian /KDE debate is really getting me irritated.
Stupid illiterates attacking the GPL, why the heck are these
newbie dorks using Linux? If the license is such a pain for
them use another OS and shut up.
Well, I probably should try to keep to my stay-out program
and focus on doing positive things for free software instead
of letting Troll Tech and their dupes irritate me.
The Sam Lantiga interview is ready and commited, also
commited my long in the making CSC Mail review. Also Rob
Warren have written a really good article for us on OpenLaw
which went up today on Linuxpower, to bad Slashdot haven’t
linked to it, think it would have sparked a healthy
I have also written an editorial called: The Linux desktop
Wars: Chapter Two.
None of the people I have gotten to test read it agree with
me, but I haven’t gotten any feedback that has made me want
to change it
I let it rest a day or two, look at at it, and if I still
think it’s arguments hold water I submit it.
Hmm, looks like am an apprentice no longer, but a
I don’t feel any different though :)
My dia article got destroyed due to me being sloppy with a
tar command, but I learned a hard earned lesson and will
not make that mistake again, on a more positive note my
two-app article goes up on Wednesday this week and I have a
review almost done of CSC Mail.
Sent of interview questions for Sam Lantiga and Joaquin Cuenca
Lot of article ideas and so little time, next week will
probably be mostly spent setting up Oracle Applications 11i
I have also noted that my Linuxpower friends are not very
good at certifying me, except for Julian,
get moving guys :).
I have been wondering how come I managed to always need
so much swap space and why Linux wasn’t as fast as I felt it
should be, and yesterday I finally learned why. I
added a extra memory chip and used the top and free commands
to check that the new memory was in place, to my supprise
only 62 Megs where reported instead of the expected 150 Megs
of Ram. After some testing it seems that Linux always have
just registered 62 M and I had to set up an extra boot
parameter to get the rest. A typical example of being so
sure about what definetly isn’t the problem that you don’t
consider checking it.
