- Madkiss finally wrote the report over three months after passing me. So now I get to wait for DAM. Though xfce itself is waiting for bits of 4.2 to go through NEW. And given the huge flamewars lately over etch, sarge will probably never release anyway. Sorry did that sound negative about Debian? :p
We celebrated one year of working for Black Cat Networks which is the world's best ISP honest, by going to a Belgian restaurant/pub in Norwich. It was a lovely place called the Belgian Monk with amazingly good waffles Am thinking of vaguely doing up a couple of bits on my house so I can sell it and move to London to be easier for work.

My New Maintainer application is virtually over. I'm just waiting for Madkiss to put forward my report to the front desk now. xfce are planning 4.2.0 in January and I think we're mostly ready. Madkiss did a lot of the work and I did a bit of QA pointing out where it was broken. I also redid xfdesktop and did xfce4-session. I think we need to look at the goodies but I don't know what's happening there really. I'm tempted to set up a mailing list for xfce4 debian stuff and just subscribe everyone to it antisocially so we can actually beat people into doing what they said they would. I had thought 4.2.x had no chance at all of making it into sarge but I'm not quite so sure now. 2.6.10 breaks resume for the orinoco_pci driver it seems. One day, just one day I hope to have a 2.6.x kernel that does suspend to disk, has all my drivers in the upstream tarball and just works. That day is not today though and in fact every kernel I've tried has had problems of some sort I think. Most have been worse than just missing or outdated drivers too. I'm off to visit Jonathan today for a few days which'll be good. I'm hoping to finally see this
pub called the Fat Cat he keeps talking about
Some people think there is too much linking my personal and professional lives on the net. I'm not sure I'm all that bothered any more but this will probably be more dull from now on.
