Various things
This makes me sick to my stomach.

Found this very amusing quiz on p.g.o. I did recognize a few, but only got 6 out of 10 correct. Apparently, I should "avoid a career in either law enforcement or IT recruitment."

And finally, Chris Dibona has posted some awesome photos taken at Foo Camp with a high speed camera. They feature attendees, including Gnome Hacker Nat Friedmen, popping balloons.

Google Talk
While I am extremely pleased that a corporation as powerful as Google is supporting a free, open standard like Jabber, I'm sort of annoyed that their new Jabber service doesn't allow traffic from other Jabber servers. I have had a jabber id (kwa@jabber.org) for quite some time, and was hoping that this announcement would inspire a good number of my friends who use Gmail to switch to Jabber. It seems that this will change. The sooner, the better.

Photos
I finally got around to posting the pictures from our road trip to Vancouver a couple of months ago. The latest version of F-Spot is broken in the Flickr department, so I used F-Spot to generate a static HTML web gallery. Nothing on bugzilla or the mailing list. I'll have to look into it.
