Hmm. Less time with Advogato lately. In fact, some of the links to your diaries have even reverted from their "recently-visited" color.

Posting this with M15 and the Aphrodite chrome. It's getting there... And M15 certainly makes the Advogato colors look better at 8 bpp than they do in Netscape 4's color cube. But it's spending far too much time in swap for me to use full-time.

Julian: Read the NASA press release again. They did not learn anything about dark matter. All they did was find (indirectly) some more of the "normal" matter that they thought must be around here someplace. Not that finding 5% of the matter in the universe is something to be scoffed at, but it's far from finding the 90% allegedly claimed by dark matter.

recidivist: To post, you must be certified. But seeing as how you provide no references about your involvement in the free software community, people have nothing to base a certification of you on, unless they already know you by name or reputation.

Of course, if you are planning on contributing to the certification discussion, you are probably already familiar with that. See also dria's ponderings on the state of the discussion. I will be delighted to read her thoughts, or anyone else's, on the subject of trust metrics -- after they've done their homework.

Today's props go to Dennis McMahan for making the spreadsheet that made master gnumeric hacker jody say "whoever created this is either a sick bastard or a genius."

...and no one told me ILOVEYOU.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
