The first time I met Ettore was during the first GUADEC in Paris 2000. We shared a room at the hotel, and talked for hours at night about various things, including a band he used to be a part of. He gave me an mp3 of the demo they had recorded, which I'm listening to right now.

The best memory I have of him is from that time. He had a habit of talking in his sleep. The first night he spoke in Italian, which I couldn't understand. But on the second night he shouted in his sleep something in English. It was something funny, and we had a big laugh about it the next morning.

Goodbye, Ettore.

GIMPcon 2003

The third day of GIMPcon is in progress. This has been an great event. Some of the photos I've taken can be seen at http://www.gnome.org/~drc/GIMPcon2003/.

So another Guadec is over. This years was definedly the worst so far. The organization trouble before the confrence really gave me a bad feeling, which turned out to be true. I think the negative mood generated before the event itself caused the mood at Guadec to be really low. The talks weren't really inspireing, which I think was caused by the low mood of the talkgivers. This was not true for all talks, but the overall mood was bad. The organization trouble continued throughout the whole event. It was odd that in the evenings I felt good and had fun, but the bad atmosphere returned the next morning. There definedly needs to be outside monitoring on next years organizers. I agree with a lot of people that Dublin would be a great location for Guadec 4.

But overall the trip was great. Ate lots of good food and had lots of great talks with people (in the evenings or after guadec). Too bad we didn't see the sun until the last day, and on sunday it rained ice. Ironically the weather was excellent the day I left Sevilla.

I have nothing to say. Duh.

At first I thought it was a joke. A plane smashing throught a building just has to be a joke. Then I saw the picture. From that point the information flood has been enourmous.
