Moooving Pictures

As part of my album writing/recording, I am taking a video diary of the whole thing. I was originally planning on producing video diaries and putting them online regularly, but I don’t think I have the time – so I am videoing everything and I will produce a documentary for the DVD when it is […]

KDE Four Oh

Congratulations to all of my old and new friends in the KDE team for shipping 4.0. They have made one hell of an achievement in that release, and I was testing the Kubuntu RC2 with KDE 4.0 the other day for a segment on LugRadio, and was mucho impressed. It all reminds me of the […]

A bunch of people have been asking me since I got back to work what I would like to see in the Ubuntu community in 2008. As you can imagine, I have a big list of things I would like to achieve, but there is one major desire that I have – make it easy, […]
