Moving to Hildesheim: Final phase

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 ;)

How to give back, part deux

Joey kindly 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.)

BTW: I did that talk twice in English, at DebConf5 's debianday and before that at Asian mini debconf 2005 in Beijing. Might be easier to understand for non German readers ;)

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.

If you travel in Germany...

... 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).

Note to myself:

When linking something to planet, make sure that Joey wasn't faster than you.

A small forward...

... from the debian-user-list:

From: Jason Martens <xxx@xxx.xx>

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 :)
