sisob: Man, I have no idea whats going on here. Why are we having so many young lives cut short? I haven't met Mark all that much but remember all his postings to ddl and his blog entries. Particurly, looking at his old blog entries is heart breaking. Farewell Mark. We'll miss you.

Rhythmbox: Well having had my gtkchooser stuff into rhythmbox, I'm now working on getting the bookmark portions working. While I don't really think it needs it I'm doing it for completeness sake. But I have to put that off as I have to finish doing the status bar which I said I would finish. Currently we have an extra widget at the bottom of the RB window.

I see that jorn has released his music player, Muine. Looks cool. Great to see jorn back in the swing of things!

elanthis sorry to hear about your job man. I'm sure you'll be able to pick up another one soon. It seems strange that just one misstep would get you fired. Weird.

Politics: I hope this is the last year of Bush. I can't wait to do my patriotic duty and vote. I hope the rest of you will as well. This is the biggest thing we can do as citizens, participate in our govt. If they know we are watching they'll not be doing things.

Other Crap: Well I finally switched over to 2.6.1. I'm really pleased. It feels a lot faster and I can't wait to add dbus, udev, and hal in and check out some of the cool things that rml and others have been doing with kernel <-> desktop integration. Truly I think this year is going to be the year of the desktop.

I need to decide whether I'm going to do a GNOME booth at OSCON here in Portland, OR. I'd like to do it because this time it's going to be desktop oriented. But I can't do it without the proper planning. Last year was a disaster because everything was so rushed. I also want to make it a bit more social this time. We hardly got to spend a lot of time doing anything social with the people.

Time to work on gnome-summary and get it out.
