Debian’s still alive!

What do you know… Debian’s still accepting applications after all! =)

I just got e-mail from the Debian Account Manager, months and months
after I finished all the Debian Developer requirements. I’m not
knocking Debian. It’s a volunteer thing, and I know what it’s like to
run out of time/brainspace… Anyway, I’ve since then passed my main
package to a new maintainer (and a very very good one, at that!), and
I haven’t really been working on my second package (remember-el). I
promise to release another version of remember-el by the end of this
week, and perhaps I’ll look into packaging some of the other Emacs
Lisp things that I use.

I’ve gotten this far. Might as well finish it. =)

E-Mail from Joerg Jaspert

On Technorati:


For all the chaos and turmoil rocking the Philippines—from natural
disasters like the landslide that buried a village to man-made
disasters like our government—I still love my country, and I still
wish I were there instead of insulated by distance and time.

Hooray for Ateneo!

Didith Rodrigo has plenty of great news:

  • Google’s sponsoring the students’ trip to the ACM finals again! Hooray!
  • Numerous contests here and there, great results! (Awwww, my first-years are all grown up now!)
  • Summer computer camp – exactly what I wanted to help out with! Whee!

I wish I were there to help out!
