Ontopic discussion

Posted by Gasten on November 27, 2007

It’s storm in the teacup again. I have no idea how it started (it might have been something about Novell and Gnome), but as all good discussions should, it’ve degenerated into pie-throwing. Fun. Gnome is just a ten year old project. Why should we expect discussions to be mature?

The Awesome

Posted by Gasten on August 17, 2007

You know what would be awesome (a Zeppelin full of ninja-pirates excluded)? If the Gnome-team, as a celebration of the 10th year anniversary, would publish the current SVN-snapshot as a hard cover book! That would be a great historical document! How cool wouldn’t it be to have “The Gnome Code” on your shelf?

by the way, the picture is stolen. Thanks Jeff, hope you don’t mind!

Sad, so sad…

Posted by Gasten on July 4, 2007

It was a great initiative. Big and powerful companies is really big and powerful.

What happened to Show Us the Code?

What’s worse is that in the Show-Us-the-Code-Message, the author pledged to the big-guys in the Open Source-community to publicly state their support. This is what happened:

Linspire was contact and Kevin Carmony did reply. He stated he would need to check with Linspire’s legal team to see where they stand. Of course as we’ve seen them team up with the litigators rather than the innovators, we now know where that camp stands, but Kevin was the only major name that did reply.

That’s f*cking awful! I mean, the campaign haven’t been very invisible. Couldn’t people like Mark Shuttleworth and Richard Stallman at least show their support? Where the hell are our community going, when we are led by people who don’t want to (can’t?) reach out to the public if they don’t have any agreements (personal or economical) with whom they are supporting? How the heck should we get people in the proprietary world to start caring for open source, when we – who’s life evolves around this single idea – can’t even care enough to write something simple as “What XXXX is doing is great. Support him.”

Bend that tone over!

Posted by Gasten on July 4, 2007

Woho (or as we say on the internet: w00t)! Some days ago (been to busy to post), I finally managed to bend a tone on my harmonica! w00t!

Ok, so inhaling hole 5, I went from F down to E! Yes! Finally! I can’t really tell you how why it’s so hard, but well… I dunno. If you try to bend a tone, you’ll feel the difficulty too.

And bended tones are so cool! A harmonica are designed to play different notes when you inhale and exhale in different holes. When you bend a tone, you shape your tongue so the air does a loop inside your mouth and then enters the harmonica again, making the small flaps inside it move slower, thus creating a new tone. That’s not the cool part. It’s the new sound that’s cool! It’s like.. rougher and contains more harmonics. It sounds a bit like when you blow in many holes at the same time. You are supposed to move your tongue back into your mouth very far, and first, the sound volume gets lower and lower when you cut the airway from your lungs, and then, when you think you have it right and the sound have stopped, you increase the amount of air, and get a new beautiful tone and harmonic!


(to bad it don’t have MIDI-support…)

On other notice, the past week I’ve been helping the Ubuntu BugSquad in their bug triaging. So, I hope to see y’all on tomorrows Ubuntu Hug Day! Keep the bug reports coming!

see you,
