Book Us A Ticket On The Next Space Shuttle

9 March 2008 21:50

Tomorrow I turn 32, so I've got to be all mature and responsible and stuff now. Maybe.

This means no more song lyrics will be used for blog titles. Instead I shall switch to film quotes. Films are more mature than songs, right?

There are three candidates standing for the DPL this year. I'm glad I didn't stand, but I came pretty close to doing so. I just think I'd be unlikely to receive the votes, and busy enough to fail even if I did get picked.

It seems to me that every year people promise to do too many things; fixing NEW, fixing the NM process & etc..

Me? I'd have only one goal: Open up the keyring-handling. Nothing more. Nothing less.

(Sure I'd blow all the Debian money on new toys for people but that'll be our little secret ;)

Anyway since there was a bit of interest I've uploaded a new steam engine video and I've started to document some of my collection:

More updates later. Really I need to sit down, clean my toys, and then get some good pictures taken.

Maybe next month I'll find the time. (Ha!)

Debian project leader elections are coming up soon. My vote will go to the candidate that:

  • Makes no promises for significant projectwide change.
  • Provides at least one mail every 8 weeks to summerise "stuff".

Thats all.

I guess most people don't really care about being a DPL per-se, instead they stand for election to accomplish a pet project, or two. (Not that there is anything wrong with that. If your platform says "Elect me and I'll do $foo" then you've got implicit support.)

A recurring theme in platforms has been communication, and I think that over time it has got a lot better. Regardless, if theres one thing I want to see from the DPL in 2009 it is even more communication.

In other news, depending on your timezone, todays date is 3/3/9 - enjoy it while it lasts. The next similar date is 4/4/16 - which is seven years in the future.
