Best of luck to Bill

Bill de hÓra has taken an exciting position with Newbay. Best of luck Bill. Many moons have passed (about 60?) since that day at WWW9 Amsterdam when I was walking the floor handing the microphone to folks who wanted to ask TBL a question - you were one of them. Some time after that you joined Propylon and have been in the middle of a whirlwind of asynchronous messaging, app servers and content management systems ever since. You are probably best known out there for your work on ATOM but I'm sure you will be adding many interesting mobile-oriented strings[1] to your bow at Newbay who are very serious innovators in that whole Mobile 2.0 space.

[1] Unicode strings of course.

feisty Fawn in the year 2143

To cut a long story so short that I won't even start it, I'm now running Ubuntu Feisty Fawn 7.04. So far, its excellent. Full-on EJW-compliant[1] install.

One wee oddity...during the install I was told that my partition had not been fsck'ed in 49710 days and so an fsck was being forced.

I honestly have no recollection of running an fsck in 2143 and then travelling back in my time machine to 2007 but then again...it would sure explain some of my weirder deja-vu moments.

[1] EJW = "Everything Just Works"
