www.gimp.org, the current host for Advogato, got hacked recently, and was down last night for a reinstall. Thanks yosh!


I've been doing mostly admin work, setting up mailing lists (which will be publicly announced as soon as Concentric fixes some DNS problems) and getting ready for the upcoming 6.30 beta release.

Emin there exists m

I've been listening to a fair amount of music downloaded from the Internet recently. Of course, I've got check out the popular stuff of the day, so over the last few days I've listened to some Eminem. The guy spits some twisted, misanthropic lyrics, but he also has a lot of talent.

I don't really understand the controversy around the supposed homophobia of Eminem's lyrics. Yeah, he says "faggot" and other things, but I'll take that over the homophobia of Jesse Helms any day.

If you're ever in a bad mood, I'm sure some of the lyrics will resonate for you. Hey, dudes from the program committees who rejected my papers about the Advogato trust metric, he's singing about you!

On a lighter note, I put up a new album of favorites at MP3.com.


Sent my submission to linux.conf.au. I'm really looking forward to visiting Australia, so let's hope the program committee makes the right call :)
