Leaves are falling, perhaps late this year? Today was a day of "true fall", hints of worse to come, again evokes memories of carving pumpkins on a hill. For the third or fourth workday in a row, I've left work after 7pm - at some point hopefully things will get less hectic.
Two things you should be aware of:
- One Laptop Per Child's give-one-get-one programme is now open. It looks like South America is the initial recipient of the donations. It should be a great toy, and it's for a good cause.
- Fedora 8 was released recently. Initial impressions: It feels a lot more polished, feels a bit less personal but a lot cleaner, interface feels tighter. I was going to note that there seems to be an across-the-board performance hit, but I just remembered that the massive restoration of files from backups is still running - it's probably fine. Those of you in the know will probably want to do "yum remove mono-core" to remove the taint of Miguel de Icaza. Also, don't forget to install Livna.
