Tux 500

April 18, 2007

I’m watching the current discussion on linux-aus about the Tux 500 project.

Firstly, it would look cool. But looking cool doesn’t mean that it’s effective, or worth the money.

But THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND US DOLLARS… it’s a bit much. Raising $345000 in a month? Unlikely.

Also, it doesn’t really have any benefit to Australia. Something like what was suggested about supporting a local charity with money plus tech would get us coverage here.

Done at last

I’ve already set up lenny sources and set my /etc/apt/preferences up to pin stable highest.

I hate exams. Especially long exams. Especially long exams which you were previously told would be an hour shorter.

And especially long exams which you were told would be shorter that test you on stuff like IEEE 754 floating-point numbers. Yep, I’ve had to use that in real life… not.
