Notes: mtearle wanted a way to find out what communities people belong to.

I am married to dancer; run LinuxChix, and write articles for O'Reilly.

I know other LinuxChix, but don't know which ones have accounts here. In the Big Room, I may know anyone in the Brisbane (Australia) or Melbourne (Australia) communities.

Still updating my primary diary, though normally only one entry a month.

Since the last post here, I've taken over LinuxChix, started writing for O'Reilly, and worked for a while as a developer at a paying job.

I have my health back - at least mostly - and am generally happier. And I got a nifty-keen monitor for my birthday. :)

Well, my first ever advogato article is up. Guess I was feeling brave tonight.

Cat, you may want to try a child's paintbrush. It doesn't keep the catfur out of the keyboard, but you can use it to brush the fur out once it's there. You may have noticed the paintbrushes in my cup-for-keeping-pens-in, on my desk .. now you know.

Works well in the interior of mice, too, and anywhere else you need something small and harmless-to-electrical-components that can clean things.

(Note: primary diary on my homepage. Not a lot of techstuff there right now, but hey. Not doing much techstuff right now - other than reading the Knuth set that Dancer got as a going-away present from Schoolsnet.)


I'm terribly disappointed. Surely the Lord of Darkness, Supreme Ruler of Hell, Prince of Evil, Master of Deception, M'lord Satan can come up with much more inventive ways of getting back at a person than to certify them down!


I'm glad you're there and safe.


Le sigh. Oh well. Not really worth saying much.


Dancer is happy. This is good. Seph (our cat) is also happy. This is also good. SimSafari is actually challenging my intellect right now. This is /not/ so good.


Sleep is useful. Sleeping tablets, much as I hate them, can also be useful. When I take the tablets, I get /deep/ sleep - much more useful than shallow sleep.


There's been a problem with the GPL potentially not being an actual 'contract'. Does UCITA actually validate the GPL? Fix the problem with it not being 'signed'?

I'd like a US legalhead to look into that! The Big Commercial Companies can't have it both ways.
