Debian "Etch" Into "Freeze"

Debian Open Logo

Today Debian GNU/Linux testing, code-named "Etch" has gone into freeze. From now on only hand approved changes will go into the distro in preparation for Etch's transition to stable status in the new year.

It's now time to get out qemu and test the upgrade from Sarge to Etch. A lot of fundamental things have changed and it's better to test things in advance of doing it for real!

Web Design Talk

I gave my basic DIY web design talk at my LUG two weekends ago. It's now online with the slides and video available. After a long hiatus in public speaking I've done a few talks for the LUG this year and I've got better in that I've stopped "Umming" all the way through. Practice may not make perfect, but it does make a lot better!
