Linuxbierwanderung 2010 proposal

David Harris and I have put forward a modest proposal to hold the 2010 Linuxbierwanderung in Alfriston, near the Sussex coast.

All discussion should be kept on the LBW mailing list.

Debian is being stupid

Oh dear. Read this and this. I think the Debian developers should:

  • grow up
  • realise that they are the only people in the whole world to care about the Debian Social Contract

I'll certainly not be installing their brand of madness again. These days, Ubuntu is sufficiently mature.

And while I'm venting my spleen (what on earth is a spleen, how do they vent, and do they taste nice?) Debian should sodding well fix their stupid release names. What the fuck is 'sid' or 'buttplug' or whatever they call it? What's wrong with a nice simple '5.7'?
