After winning the LUV presidency, Donna got handed a few boxes of paperwork with, amongst the MySQL 3.x manuals and Fedora Core 1 and 2 CDs, a little gem. Well, three little gems actually. Three glossy CALU flyers :-)
Until such time as there is an officially announced result in the US elections, I do not need estimated outcomes from absolutely everyone on the minute, every minute.
Dear Minister Conroy,
I'm an IT professional living in Melbourne and I have been following discussions about the proposal to filter all internet traffic coming into Australia. This proposal has me both worried and somewhat bemused.
The worry stems from a lack of any clear information on what "illegal content" is and no way of determining what sites would be blocked. Support group websites? Politically inconvenient sites? Overseas news papers? Proposing such broad censorship laws in the name of protecting children is wrong. The state is not a parent.
A few weeks back, when Donna had just gotten her new camera (Nikon D80) I was playing around at night in the suburbs, trying to do some star field shots.
I put the camera on a tripod and set it to the longest possible exposure (30 seconds) and found I needed the self-timer as well, so the vibrations from my pushing the shutter button would have time to die out. With the wide angle lens and this exposure time limitation, I think I did a relatively decent job on the southern cross.
I was looking through the linux.conf.au site when having a go at registering earlier today and spotted a dark, furry item in one of the photos of the paper ctte face 2 face meeting. And I don't mean the vice president ;-)
Circled. Looks supiciously like the lca 2009 logo....
After a fairly long and frustrating day, I finally have DKIM working with Postfix on Etch. I was assuming it would be fairly straighforward, but was treated to such lovely errors as these in my mail.log:
Extra, extra! Read all about it! Linux priced out of the market by vendors conspiring with monopoly!
Nice headline, huh? If only it weren't true.
