I don't know if I should be proud of this...

Yeah, I know, I wrote it in the first place, but still...

Blackout in Europe

Joey, I can tell you such people exist (people whose power was cut in order to limit the impact), because I am one of them. No power for something like 45 minutes in all the neighbourhood at least, for what I know, and press reported 5 millions people without electricity for France alone. ADSL came back some 30 minutes after electricity, so everything was back to normal by 23:30 GMT+1. We also had a 'micro-blackout' earlier the same day, a bit before mid day, if I recall correctly, which made the external hard drive connected to my server be stuck during an I/O. Fortunately, powering it off and on solved the problem, and the filesystem is okay. The server itself being an old laptop, it didn't lose its uptime, but without network, it was quite useless...

Meme time: What american accent do you have ?

What American accent do you have?

Your Result: The Northeast

Judging by how you talk you are probably from north Jersey, New York City, Connecticut or Rhode Island. Chances are, if you are from New York City (and not those other places) people would probably be able to tell if they actually heard you speak.

The Inland North
The Midland
The South
The West
North Central
What American accent do you have?

I'm back from Japan. Time went too fast... Met a lot of people we hadn't seen for a while, had a great time. Only problem is that I'm totally jetlagged. Woke up at 3am this morning, and decided to actually do something after trying to sleep some more for an hour.

The downside of holidays is the 4000+ mails (excluding spam) that got in my mailbox. I've already gone through most of the new bug reports and have been able to vote for the last GR that was issued while I was away.

One of the most annoying problem that was raised during my vacation is this Firefox trademark issue. We've been avoiding to change the package name for a while. We got agreements to use the Firefox name when we had to drop the "Mozilla" part of "Mozilla Firefox", and now it seems they (again) changed their mind.

I really think we should go with the iceweasel name because this name is already widespread as the "debian may rename firefox this way" name. It is even in wikipedia.

On other news, we bought a MacBook and a Nikon Coolpix S6 for Miki, and a (already broken) PSP as well as some books for me. I'll write more on these in coming posts.

I'm leaving for Japan in a few hours.

I have been careful not to leave too much mess in my packages for this vacation period, so all should be running just fine until I come back.

Closing all comments and trackbacks to avoid spam.
