Over the past few months I’ve written entries here which have elicited some interesting replies. I ranted about poor support from SuSE and received personal emails from company representatives who wanted to help me out.

Interesting that so many people see what I write, and also slightly intimidating given that my sense of humour has repeatedly been misintepretted in the past .. online and offline.
I don’t really have a good conclusion here, but I suspect I just got lucky. I tend to write fairly trivial things, and rarely take any of it very serious.

It looks likely that I’ll have a lot more time to contribute to Debian over the coming months (although this isn’t confirmed yet). Either way I’ll have a much nicer “working” environment at home.
ObSocial: The postcards I sent to Debian folks seemed to all arrive, except for the one I mailed to Amaya (despite having several rounds of back and forth to get the address right). That was returned to me yesterday. Try again tomorrow I guess.
