I have no idea why I updated my system to Ubuntu while the only apps I am using these days are vim bash and Terminal.app. But that's how to manage boredom, I guess.
It is being discussed in GNUstep mailing list about using GNUspeech which was given to GNU long time ago to implement NSSpeechSynthesis. I went through the list and found this message. I have a feeling like, from its maintainer's attitude, GNUspeech (which is in Objective-C) should be forked and maintained by GNUstep developers instead. Although it would be nice if we can provided C API wrapper for the rest of the world.
Years ago I've painted stuffs for Kernelnewbies.org. Those are Penny and some t-shirt designs (they never made those shirts though, AFAIK). I do not interested in reading any kernel source code anymore (unless someone is insane enough to write kernel threads in Objective-C and tie DO to l4 messaging) and no longer staying in the channel. I think I am one of the reason why riel started the channel since I have been kicked around in #linux somewhere on MIT irc server for loading the channel with silly questions :( (Alan Cox and Riel are so nice to answer them) Hmm, I am missing Uncle Snafu.
