"xe inutie che te me mandi el bocia e dopo 10 minuti el va via e xe tuto roto come prima, *** ***!"
Frustration with Debian again. Working to see if I could build anything interesting worth using to replace some of the previously mentioned crufty perl scripts, and all I get is some petty beaurocrat insulting me?
I don't care if this is all volunteer work for most of us. It's important to behave professionally and not treat others like some annoying piece of dirt that stuck on your shoe. Especially when you are a relatively important person within the project.
In any case, insults aside, I think this pedantic mentality just doesn't sit well with me. I like Debian a lot, from a technical point of view, but it's not going to make up for the deficiencies if innovation is stifled.
Bought Beppe Severgnini's "Ciao America" (Un Italiano in America)... although I think I'll get a copy of it "in lingua originale" when we go back to Italy. My girlfriend will doubtless get a kick out of it.
