I suppose I could fill this in, but that wouldn't keep you guessing. :) No, I don't really have a homepage, but you can grab my "cool stuff" from there.

Woo, cool news!

davidw Have you seen googlizer? It's a launcher for the GNOME panel that does what you're talking about.

mathieu Does this mean you don't like how Norm Walsh's XSL stylesheets render bibliographies?

deekayen I'm not really a big fan of BSD as a desktop OS, but I'm pretty picky about what I will put up with on my desktop. However, I don't think that going with FreeBSD over OpenBSD will help very much with compatibility. There are way too many apps out there that folks only test on Linux. Nobody sane tests on or cares about making their stuff work on Slackware either (as evidenced by reading many bugzillas).

The interview with Tim Perdue was extremely awesome. It's helped push me over the edge into thinking that GNOME ought to have a SF like hosting site. Hopefully GForge will remain active, and replace some of the crappy sourceforge things so that it can actually be something that I'd be willing to run for GNOME application developers.
djm: As Richard is kind enough to point out to the GNOME community every 12 months or so (when we hold GNOME Foundation Board elections), the second GNU Desktop attempt wound up creating 'guile', because they wanted a desktop scripting language. I have no idea how useful it actually is, but it might be worth looking at.
movement and MichaelCrawford seem to be having a great time going back and forth. For what it's worth I don't think the bug report that Michael filed is very useful. There really isn't anything in there that the mozilla people can work on. Mozilla certainly does crash from time to time. Whenever I find something that makes it crash consistently, I file a bug, so that it can get fixed, and maybe I can do whatever it is that I was trying do. However, you talk about "random crashes". Not only are those the most annoying, but they're nearly impossible to debug. If you've got something that folks can actually investigate and fix, great, bitch and moan that nobody is working on it.

MichaelCrawford also complains of "UI bugs that make it unpleasant to use." What bugs are these? I've filed the UI bugs that I've found. If you're finding ones that are unpleasant, look for them in bugzilla (the query page is scary at first glance, but not so bad if you take your time), and add yourself to the 'cc' list, so that you can get notified when they get fixed. If you can't find them in bugzilla, file them, so that folks know where their UI sucks. Without this, it's not going to get any better. You can't claim that you don't know what the bugs are if you find that they make it "unpleasant" to use. Even if you don't have a suggestion for making it better, file that you don't like the current behaviour.

As for movement's posts (not his initial reply via bugzilla), well, at the very least, their tone -sucks-. This is not how you talk to people who care enough to file a bug report. It's not how you encourage people to keep contributing to your project (code is NOT the only contribution possible).

Sorry, but that sort of thing just ticks me off, and it was the top two entries at recentlog, so it HAD to be replied to. More interesting stuff later, really! :)
dyork Woo, you're here (more or less)! Do you have time to get together for a beer before you leave? (I'll drop you a real note via email, but this will help remind me)

I purchased an Intel In Business 8-Port 10/100 "Switch" (I'll go into the inacuracies in that statement some other time) a couple of year ago. Hmm, probably about 3 or 4 years, now that I think about it. Anyway, at the time I paid $75 for the device, because somebody had sent out the MSRP as off by $200, or some snafu like that. It was a great deal, and since it's was manufactured by a large company, I figured that it would be decent quality. Alas, it dies this afternoon. Nothing catastrophic, but the PSU was suddenly outputing no volts. Gar, so that left me with a network connection for a while, and worse, my server without a network connection. Thankfully I have folks who run backup services for me.
I just find it a bit frustrating that this simple piece of electronics just up and dies, for no apparent reason. Worse, there are no screws holding it together. It appears to snap together, and get held there with glue. I can't even open it up and find out what's wrong. Of course, being for a piece of computer equipment, it is rated at 3 Amps, which is quite a bit more than any PSU available at Rat Shack can supply. I ended up wiring it up to a computer power supply (you know, the "old fashioned" kind that has a switch to turn it on or off), so that I could get up and running again. Horrible cludge, but better than not getting mail.

I just got around to doing some work on a project that's been on my mind foe aeons. Certainly long enough that I've talked with both HelixCode (err, Ximian) and Red Hat about releasing their versions of it. Never made any real progress, but the Ximian person I talked to had stupid reasons behind it. Anyway, I have need for a system that can take SRPMs and build them in to binary RPMs in an unattended manner. I wrote up some of my thoughts on the topic, in a rather haphazard manner, and put them online here I've also put up the XML source, (though it's using DocBook 4.1.2 instead of DocBook 4.2, because 4.2 doesn't work properly on my RHL8.0 box)
