An Xmas editorial I really like.

Unclear on that whole email thing

Monday, December 2nd, 2002

Last week I got some US postal mail from some relatives. It contained printouts of their AOL email and were forwarding on to me. No handwritten note, just the printouts. Yes, they know what my email address is and have even managed to send to it before.

I won’t say who they are on the slim-to-nil chance that they find this website…

An experiment at work

Monday, December 2nd, 2002

I’ve started a work blog @ hp about the linux related work I do there.
A couple of folks on the internal IRC were into it.

If you are in the 15.x.x.x (hp.com) or 16.x.x.x (dec.com acquired by compaq.com) netblock (yes, HP has cornered the market of large IP address blocks), take a look at marc’s linux solutions engineering @hp weblog

New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) is looking for bible record donations

Monday, December 2nd, 2002

The latest New England Ancestors Magazine has a small article about the NEHGS is soliciting donations of old family bibles that contain genealogical records, but they are also accepting scans of the title page and those pages with genealogical information. I’m going to see if they are interested in scans of my newly aquired Gideon Taylor/Sarah Burr 1756 bible[1].

One of the last hurdles on the way to debian developerhood…

Monday, December 2nd, 2002

My AM finally sent me the ‘t&s’ questionnaire (he wasn’t checking the email account I was pinging him at)

Pretty straight forward stuff where most of the answers can be found in the various debian developer documents. Just a matter of finding time to work through the questions…
