Phone gone

Just a quick note, my phone has been lost. My faithful companion has provided hours of entertainment, but it is now lost somewhere in San Francisco airport. So, if you try to call me, you will either get my answer machine message, or some guy who will try to sell you it for $6. For […]

Practical PHP and MySQL, boo yah

A sample copy was here when I got back from San Francisco, and it looks schaweeeet. The book takes a different approach to PHP/MySQL development, […]

OK, you got it you filthy bullet point fiends: The spec about unifying resources with Launchpad was very productive, and there was some discussion of it being rolled out for planets and user maps. This will not […]

Dog 2.0

Nearly at a week into my two week jaunt over here in California. Having a great time, and naturally missing Sooz and our little doggies. So, Sooz uploaded an update on the pooches which I know some of you will like. Its odd, I spoke to four people today who knew all about our dogs. […]

UDS so far

Well, I have been at the UDS for a few days, and there is lots of stuff going on around many different parts of Ubuntu and the community. Prepare for one of my rather ugly bullet-points-lists-of-ultimate-doom: The UDS spec process seems pretty decent.
