As for #gnome, it was middle of the night UK
time, so I’ll give you that. The thing that irked me was
that conversation occurred around my question, and yet
there was no ACK that people didn’t know the answer. Is
that a trait of the channel? Here in .au, people tend to
give a NAKs as often as ACKs. Maybe I’ll come and lurk for
Unfortunatly I have to say it seems to be a trait for
the channel, at least sometimes. I think part of the
problem is that #GNOME is to big so most people with the
know-how don’t really follow the discussion but only
responds when adressed directly.
There are some people responding though
Telsa being probably the best at it. And I
try to respond myself sometimes, but I too tend to focus on
other channels most of the time so when my name is not
being addresed I often miss questions being asked.
My suggestion is trying the smaller channels on GIMPNET
since there are a much better chance of getting a reponse
there. Another alternative is if you now the handle of the
maintainer of the module you wonder about so you can try to
address him/her directly.
Anyway if your questions don’t
get answered and I am in the channel, try typing in my
handle (Uraeus) and I will try to help. I seldom now the
answer, but I usually know who you should ask :)
Hmm, seems my Berlin interview was linked to from Slashdot
anyway. Guess Infodragon wrote a better submission than me.
Getting lots of good feedback on my interview, seems people
think they are well done.
Mailed with Bart today, due to the changes at Eazel we are
redoing the interview from scratch. Hope
crudman don’t scream when he realizes the
hard editing on that interview is now redundant ;(
The Abiword interview with cinamod will
go up later this week, so things will keep flowing on
Linuxpower until the new Eazel interview is ready.
I have also made arrangements with Borland for an interview
about Kylix, GNOME etc. Now all I need is sit down and come
up with good questions :)
Not been able to much Linux related stuff this last week as
work continued to take most of my time. Saw Crouching tiger,
hidden dragon at the cinema last night. Definetly
something I recommend you go and see.
On the Linuxpower front I things have been a little slow
now. The Berlin interview is submited for publication but
katzj is hasn’t gotten around to do so
yet. The Abiword interview I got back from
crudman after he having edited it today so
I will put his fixes into the interview and mail Dom for
final approval. The Eazel interview was held back due to the
recent changes at Eazel, but will probably go up sometime
rakholh I am have trouble seeing why you
are disgusted by those comments. What the Taliban are doing
is due to some twisted perversion of Islam, hence they are
Islamic nuts. Face it, there are nuts in all religions.
Unfortunatly at this point in time Islamic nuts have more
political and military power in their core areas than their
Christian counterparts, and hence the power to do more damage.
That said, I do for instance feel that Christian nuts
have to much power in the US for instance, and have a
genuine hope that they are reduced to fringe groups there
like they are in most of Europe. Unfortunatly with Bush in
the White House I feel that this cause has been set back
Been out a couple of days with a bad back. I woke up on
monday with extreme back pains, which didn’t start to go
away until wednesday. Stayed in bed/on coach most of the
week which did not fit in well with my work schedule, but
what could I do.
Anyways I got my Eazel interview cleaned up today and mailed
of for editing. Also got a mail from
ErikLevy about his upcomming review of the
bindings, really looking forward to that.
Also as many of you probably have seen, my GStreamer
interview went live earlier this week. Was a smashing success ;)
