Linux Symposium is great, but I will be exhausted at the end (or before :-\). Lots of good talks, lot of them occuring in the corridor... Looks a lot like a mini-IETF except there is no ties at all :-) . Networking and especially wireless is great, when it works.

Speaking of networking, I was able to make a new release of libxml (2.2.1) during the Docbook BOF. Again people are deseperately looking for graphical editing tools. Seems Conglomerate and Amaya/Thot are among the only alternatives right now, but I'm sure this is gonna change/improve soon.

I discovered yesterday that rpmfind.net had been out of the net for 10 hours, seems the Eepro100 driver died, I was able to log in from the PLIP connection I maintain with a nearby machine, stop eth0, unload the eepro100 driver, and restart eth0, I *love* PLIP. I must be one of the few using it it was broken from 2.2.7 to 2.2.14 ...

Yesterday evening we went to a thai place, Mike Shaver seems to order 1/ too spicy 2/ too much food. Since I was sitted next to him I ended up eating most of his left over. I skipped the Corel party and went out for a beer and pool with Gerald as well as Michael Meeks, David Mason, and Gegl. This was great even if the Emacs team did beat the Vi team 2 to 1 ... well they need a revenge from time to time.
