I am considering not to visit Berlin and the 20C3. The organization seems to be even more chaotic, and no interesting talks.
I could as well visit my girlfriends family in Salzburg….
The usual Christmas ceremony: Chrismas tree admiring, tea drinking and cookies eating, unpacking gifts.
Later, when my family went to church, I read a book from one of my parcels, “Russiandisco” by Wladimir Kaminer. The book contains short stories about russian immigrants in Berlin and contains a CD with strange Russian Popmusic (lots of brass sounds). Some of the Stories are quite funny.
After that the russian music inspired me to hack a bit on the RSS script and now I am cathing up with my blog.
Submitted my first Bugreport to Darwinports. The bug has been fixed in FreeBSD 9 months ago :-(. There is still a lot to do until they are comparable to FreeBSD ports.
Needed to buy a mobilephone-paycard today and noticed that a lot of people must have read my advice when to buy presents. The shops were still crowded.
All Computers that have one of my FreeBSD.org SSH Keys on their disk are shut down.
My fingers are itching, but I can’t work for FreeBSD on Christmas.
Alan Cox closed XFree86 Bug 525. Unfortunately it was not a Chrismas gift, but he just splitted the bug into several hopefully more manageable bugs.
While I wrote the last blog entry, I noticed that my blog wasn’t running smooth.
The load on huckfinn was up to 60!!! My Maillog scrolled too fast to read. I spent an hour on trying to blacklist the most busy hosts, but it didn’t reduce the load.
Now I have changed my Firewall rules for a whitelist system. So if you want to email me and you are not using univie/tuwien/FreeBSD MXes, don’t use the arved.de address. After Chrismas I have to fix this, by either switching to a different domain or further improvement of my firewall rules.
Spam and Viruses suck 🙁
According to What muppet are you? I am Kermit the Frog and the Gender Genie tells me I am female. I guess it is time to think about myself :-).
Found this nice interactive Webcams of Chrismas Trees. You can switch the lights on and off via the Internet!!!!!1
Okay good news, got a 3 in my last exam. Now I just have to motivate myself to look into my Math and Digital Design material over Chrismas…..
