Older blog entries for shaleh (starting at number 1)

So spent most of today trying to get the lame ass piece of shit that is qt 2.1 to compile into a deb. Man, I have seen better makefiles from 14 year olds and this is a company. Troll Tech, hire someone who knows what the hell make clean does will ya.

Well, hopefully I will get KDE to go after I get qt installed. Seems people on debian-user want it and RevKrusty may need some help.

Now I need to figure out how to turn a persons name into a link here on advogato.

First day, reading all the interesting things there are to read.

Something intersting on the web, been a long time since I found that.

Spoke at Sacremento LUG last night. I think it went well. The group is small, but has a good range of knowledge. It was also nice and informal. A welcome change over SVLUG.

I added my first Debian maintainer Tuesday. It feels real good. Was assigned two more applicants yesterday. One of them is not looking too good.

So, went to the Bay Area Freebsd User Group meeting tonight. Topic was a comparison of linux to bsd. First thing I noticed was the higher caliber of the attendants. These people are all kernel hackers. I felt a little outgunned. The chat went well and was decently flame free. Did my best to do a linux != red hat. Mentioned apt (yay jgg). Mostly everyone talked about minor differences in implementation of features. Big thing I noticed was how much more willing bsd people seemed to be to buddy up to companies and proprietary code. All in all, a good night.
