Chris (the White variety)

Hrm, I think I tortured christel a bit too much, earlier ..


Actually Chris, I think that was your and Diego’s comment(s) in combination with esammer (thanks for the decent laughing flash I had btw ๐Ÿ˜ฎ )

F*cking summer

Oh, yeah baby *g*. It’s finally hot f*cking summer and I *really* like it. We have now three weeks in a row sunny weather with no rain at all.

Everyone running around with less or nearly no clothes (heh, especially the girls) is also a nice present from above.

Personally I haven’t felt better the last two years. Maybe that’s depending on my previous depressions and the like (you know these thoughts .. ) but this summer is definitely going rock my life!

christel, babe ๐Ÿ˜› I have to say you’re not alone with those mood swings. I have them also from time to time. Everyone (well my friends :P) is bitching at me then like “C’mon, don’t be so negative about … blah” or “Why are you so angry at … blah ?”.

You’re also right, piling the anger up isn’t such a good thing (TM). Stress from work (or family :() is also doing its part.

Aaah, Joshua; I nearly forgot about you! Take of that hat! It makes you look like a clown, which you really are not ๐Ÿ™‚ And I’m gonna blog about my 15 billion pieces puzzle tomorrow (uploading ~180M of jpeg’s isn’t that fast with stupid 16k upstream).

Oh, by the way thanks Sven for the really great introduction of frilled! I really would like to see more of those (even if it will get pretty hard by the time :))

But enough of the bitching, now some infos/updates on the Gentoo/FOSS-related things.

  1. Herbert announced another release candidate for linux-vserver (surprise ๐Ÿ˜› rc27), and I really hope we’ll see the final version within this month (haha since this month ends tomorrow, nah the next month). I’ll prepare a patch-tarball and an ebuild later.
  2. As I earlier mentioned, I took some of Henrik’s packages (while he was on his Hiatus). And now he announced his resignation!. *sigh*. Henrik, I really hate to see you go.
  3. I also joined the kernel-monkey herd (thanks Henrik, Daniel and John for letting me), did my first release for genpatches (and messed it up, I *know*), became devoted to the mobile-herd (thanks Stefan for asking) and also poked around a bit with the hardened patchset for 2.6.17 (ah, thanks again John :)).

Summer – finally

Well it’s mid of July and the weather seems to be my friend. 25ยฐC ain’t that bad. I really liked the weather last week (although everyone at work was bitching about it being tooo warm :P) and would like to keep it (for the rest of the year of course!).

Hrm, for everyone who loved the music within Kill Bill – Volume 1: Tomoyasu Hotei really rocks (playing Battle without Honor or Humanity).

Work is finally getting interesting. The x366 have been delivered, as well as the new Netbay 42U rack and of course the optional Cisco Catalyst 3650. Hopefully my co-worker will let me work on those babies in a short time (I would really like to :))

And now to my Gentoo related work:

I had an interesting conversation with Hendrik yesterday about some of his packages, and I’m taking over some of them …

I bumped sys-cluster/vzctl, hopefully all bugs related to the upstream changes (well I missed a config var in the init-script #138469) are now fixed. Oh yeah, they finally decided to switch to a sane versioning scheme. Thanks Kir and Igor!

Linux VServer stuff is also approaching its final release (even if Herbert is always saying When its done. I’ll prepare the patch tarballs for 2.{0.2,1.1}_rc26 later.

Meh, I nearly forgot to say thank you. Thanks a lot Mr. Bush. They just showed how the local waste disposal company is blocking the road with dumpsters while being protected by ~20 policemen … And only to prevent anybody driving into the city with a car which could endanger Mr. President!
