I knew the ‘z’ probably would give them some trouble, but come on, zoology??

Journeying Artificial Zoology and Masterful Assassination Neohuman

So, maybe it only works with your real name:

Journeying Artificial Sabotage and Potential Exploration Replicant

oh dear, sabotage…

/me goes to have a good look at his bugzilla entries ;-)

Patch for Compaq R3000 laptop

Off topic, but since I’ve been working on this mostly for the past few weeks… I’ve prepared a workarround to an incredibly crappy harware bug that cause the timer to run 3 times too fast on some of the Compaq R3000/HP zv5000 laptops.

This is actually a lunar post, but this blog needs more news ;-)

I think my firefox is buggier than Auke’s:

# lvu compile firefox | grep -i warning | wc -l
# lvu compile thunderbird | grep -i warning | wc -l

It’s done, exams are finished. At least until august since i have to present once again those i didn’t pass during the june session, i’ll know on thursday which ones. Now i have plenty of time ahead, i have plans for Xfprint 4.4 (lprng support, better cups support, utf8 support and make a2ps optionnal); if you have suggestions or are willing to contribute let me know. I’ll start hacking Xfprint code next week. It’s good to be on holidays.

Intelligent Design

As seen on Planet GNOME, maybe this could be interesting for Maria van der Hoeven, our minister of education: Intelligent Design.

Fairly entertaining. Don’t read it if you are easily offended about your religion and that religion happens to be Christian.

pirate name

Now for my pirate name :)

My pirate name is:
Bloody Davy Kidd

Every pirate lives for something different. For some, it’s the open sea. For others (the masochists), it’s the food. For you, it’s definitely the fighting. Even though you’re not always the traditional swaggering gallant, your steadiness and planning make you a fine, reliable pirate. Arr!

Get your own pirate name from fidius.org.

Quite unexpected, to me, at least :)

Best rant about Eugenia’s fight with GNOME devs, I’ve read so far.

Better than Brians. And possibly even longer… ;-)

Note that I don’t mean to say anything about what really happened and whether Eugenia or the GNOME devs or anyone else was right or wrong. This was just rather funny.
