Posting on Advogato because last night, the drive that contains /home on swamprat died a horrible death. There's now a replacement drive in there, but here's the seriously embarassing thing. No backup. Hadn't taken a backup in so long that I couldn't even find the last one I did! Hopefully most of the data will be restored, I have a colleague working on that, but I won't be able to lay my hands on it till Monday. My blog, of course, resides on /home.
Thankfully, the Planet cache on Planet SuSE means that people can at least see my recent entries there.

Today's the second birthday of the site, so I released a new version of ULB GNOME, with various minor improvements.
Had ordered my new digicam from pixmania.com, they debited my debit card the amount for the camera, a memory card, and delivery. at that point they sent me an email saying that in order to ship it to me, they needed all sorts of proof of ID - passport, drivers license, utility bill with address, faxing to their office France! I cancelled the order, and they are reimbursing me. Don't buy a camera from pixmania.com.
