While I was working on it for quite some time, I reached now the final phase of my move to Hildesheim. While I'm already marked as being on vacation already for some time, I'll be really absent for the next days. Sorry, but I broke my notebook the other day and have no net back at my old flat in Frankfurt.
Don't worry, I'm sure I'll make it back for the release party ;)

mentioned one of my regular talks titled
payback time. I just uploaded
the slides of the talk to people.d.o. (Slides
made with latex-beamer; source-code availabe, too, licensed under GPL-2; feel
free to do your own talks based on this or to contribute new ideas.)
The DebConf-5 session was filmed by the video team. It's available on meetings-archide.d.n in different formats mpeg (111M), low resolution ogg theora (57M), high res ogg theora (123M). Kudos again to the video team :)
Oh, and I should mention, that it wasn't my fault, that I look a bit like a clueless idiot in that video. We had technical problems on the first day, distracting me a bit. Really!
BTW: I always planed to write a good documentation regarding that topic, but never had the time to do this. I have still some notes on paper. If someone would like to help me with this, please drop me a mail.

... on the railroad, and forgot your luggage (like your girlfriends birthday
present you just bought) in the train just leaving the station and it's a small
station in the middle of nowhere (like the main station in a city counting
officially more that 100'000 inhabitants) and late in the evening (like 7pm)
and there is no service personal to find anywhere, you should call the
zentrale Fundstelle; don't search for their phone number at reasonable
places (like the closed information point) or a phone booth (if you ever find
one with a phone book).
The Number is: 01805-990599.
But it's quite useless; they will just take a note, give you a number and ask you call back in a couple of days, instead of doing something useful (like calling the personal in the train, to get my fucking birthday present I spend the last money I don't have from my credit card, and ask them to leave it at the next bigger station, where I would have picked it up).

It seems that morale is a bit low among the developers right now, so I thought it might be nice for all of us users to remind them why Debian is such an awesome project. I love Debian. I love how the system works. I love the quality of the packages. I love that it lets me do what I want to do, and does not try to dictate how to do things.
To all of you Debian developers, thank you. I really appreciate the work you do. Keep it up!
The other mails in the thread are nice to read, too :)
