Good Parenting: Exhibit 1 (overheard at work today)

6-year old: Mommy, why is that man dressed like a lady?
Mother: That is a lady. She was just born with the wrong body.
6-year old: How did that happen?
Mother: Nobody really knows. But she's working to fix it, and that's what's important.
6-year old: Okay! *runs up to obviously self-conscious woman*
6-year old: Hey! Miss!
Lady: ...yes?
6-year old: You look really pretty in your skirt!
Lady: Thank you!
*Kid skips back to her mom, and literally everyone in the vicinity smiles*


I'd just like to point out that it wasn't hard to explain this to a child at all...... Next excuse please?

Wieso hat das als "Ostösterreicher" titulierte Gefährt ein klar erkenntlich deutsches Kennzeichen? Hinterarlberger Propaganda-Material, das noch dazu schlecht gefälscht ist?

BSP Essen November 2012, Report

So it happened: the Bug Squashing Party in Essen is done. And depending on your point of view at least I would call it a success.

We had in total fourteen participants. The number of release-critical bugreports touched and processed is not clear, but over 100 bugreports were looked at and either got comments added for clearification, maintainer pinged, unblock requests filed or already filed ones noted down, or NMUed. Given that we are in freeze since a while now and many easy bugreports already squashed by those who aim for a daily fix, I consider this impressive.

There is also the point that we managed to get some people involved that didn't consider themself techy enough to be of help. On the contrary, they were a great help on checking these bugreports with analyzing the discussions in some lengthy bugreports and upstream bug trackers, or trying to reproduce some issues. I can just hope that the weekend left an impression deep enough to keep them in the boat.

All in all, I'm quite pleased of the outcome, especially in the light of several other events catching the interest of potential participants which were going on at the same weekend. Thanks to all the people that stumbled by, and I am looking forward to maybe having another BSP at some point, but then I hope to not clash with so many other events. Thanks!

Lindsey Stirling

Sometimes one stumbles upon artists by accident and immediately falls in love with them. A link to a video from Lindsey Stirling was dropped in a chat I was paying attention to at that time, and it immediately touched me. She's got style, and she's got great videos.

Speaking of videos, here they are:

  • Electric Daisy Violin: This was the song that was dropped. And it touched me, especially her dressing style. Maybe her legs will also catch your attention like they did to me. :)
  • Crystallize: The subtitle Dubstep Violin of this video is what describes her style best. Great play.
  • Shadows: Another great song with terrific video.

I hope her plans to come to europe might work out soonish. Enjoy!

I hate my life

This poem was triggered by a discussion with a special person—not special in the sense I address in the poem though.

My life's hating me
But it is not a one-way:
I'm hating my life

Hate being special
I know I can help others
But what about me?

All quite supportive
Respect for my openness
And encouraging

Though, no step further
No clue how to handle me
Afraid to ask me

Hooking up with me?
Suddenly embarrassing
Just scolding words left

Want to be normal
Maybe I'll lie to myself
Though that won't work out

I am what I am
And sometimes it just pains me:
Hate being special

I'm hating my life
But it is not a one-way:
My life's hating me

Please refrain from asking whether I feel fine, I am in good mood. :) But I haven't written anything in a way too long time, I noticed how little actually during selecting poems for the International Poetry Night during debconf. So I picked up the idea and caressed it until I came up with the above piece about with which I am quite happy. Think about it, and ... try to enjoy.

Potential interesting sidenote, if you wonder: the title refers to this snippet from the first Futurama episode: I hate my life I hate my life I hate my life. :)
