Debian quiz - small correction

Bad luck :( We made a small error checking the facts behind the questions of Myons Debian quiz.

Indeed Myon needed to replace question 29 and asked me to retest it. Damn, I didn't got it, I don't got my 100%!

Branden, don't worry. According to the quiz, I should no longer run for DPL...

... and thanks Nion for telling us about the error. If you wouldn't told us, I could still have the perfect result...

Debian quiz

Christoph "Myon" Berg just announced hist Debian quiz.

I tested it, and found it quite funny (although some questions are a bit unfair... mainly because I added them myself... ;)

If you have some nice ideas for additional questions, feel free to get in contact. If we have enough questions, maybe we can replace PP and TS with the quiz.

While testing the quiz, I noticed (now comes the real reason for this blog ;) one important thing:
I'm important enough to be named together with Branden Robinson, Anthony Towns, several Ian's, supermodels and Toy Story characters.

Wow, I didn't passed NM, yet, but the quiz asks you for my title:

Alexander "Tolimar" Schmehl is Debian's
1: CIA
2: CEO
3: CFO
4: CTO

Of course he will delete the question, if I tell you the right the answer here, steeling my well earned honour, but as tip: It started as a joke, and became some kind of official, when it was published in the weekly news ;)

PS: Christoph, you are using TP, because you didn't got your wireless running with WEP, when I told you the web key in hex...

We tried our best to help him!

Dear Madduck,

since several weeks we noticed quite some of your efforts to sell your new book and wonder if you are running low on cash? Did Microsoft file a lawsuit against you for using their intellectual property?

In any case we couldn't just sit there and do nothing. We passed around the hat for you in in the German Debian channel and collected a modest sum to help you though this worse time. Please tell us your banking account information, so we can transfer you the 0 Euro and 3 Cents as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely,
        Tolimar and some other friends

No, I won't join the current meme, just a good tip:

If you use WEP to encrypt your home wireless a bit (yes, I know it's not secure), it is of course useful to choose a WEP-key whose ASCII string you can remember. But: Don't use an ASCII string, which is to private so you can't tell it other people visiting you...

Alexander Schmehl, please fix your attitude

I still don't understand why he blogged at all, but I finally understand that I over reacted when answering Brenden's blog with an own blog.

It seems that I missed his attempt to be funny -- or to be more correct: It seems that I completely misinterpreted his blog.

All I can say is that I'm currently very stressed (at work, at university but most privately), didn't had the time to step out of myself to take a look at the overall situation… and that I'm sorry.

Branden, I'm sorry for being rude to you and hope that it won't happen again.
