      "A Supreme Court that doesn't give a damn what the public wants ... is exactly what a Supreme Court is for, actually." True enough. But elected representatives in government *are* supposed to do what people want, that's why they get elected. If they had fulfilled their obligations to actually represent the citizens' wants then the […]

      RT @clacke People, not all people but most people, are angry about the wrong thing. I agree that Roe v Wade being canceled is a bad outcome. I agree that women should have the right to their bodies, but here's my possibly unpopular take: A Supreme Court that doesn't give a damn what the public […]

      It's the middle of May, I'm sitting outside in 28C weather, just 100km west of Toronto, and the Leafs are *still* playing hockey?

      RT @guizzy @vriska I would wait before celebrating just yet. Never underestimate the Leafs ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

      It seems the state-of-the-art for autonomous vehicles is worse than I thought. Still, with the number of bad drivers on the road now, replacing them with bad robocars is still likely to be an improvement.

      OTOH, when the self-driving cars have to make a trolley decision and decide to veer into a mailbox or a fire hydrant that's really me on a bicycle, then I'm blaming you.

      RT @lnxw48a1 One thing I do with CAPTCHAs is to always include one wrong item in the "click all the boats/bicycles/traffic lights". After 3-4 rounds, it usually lets me in anyway, and whatever killer robot I'm training will waste bullets attacking mailboxes and fire hydrants and skipping people on bicycles and motorcycles.

Pictures from the KW Ubuntu Release Party

Posted by Bob Jonkman on October 21st, 2012

The Kitchener-Waterloo chapter of the Ubuntu Canadian Team had a wonderful Ubuntu Release Party today. Laurel Russwurm baked a cake and I made some devilled eggs:

Quantal Cake and Devilled Eggs

If you squint a little you can make out the Ubuntu logos…

Ralph brought the official Ubuntu banner:

That’s Jeff, Sergiane, Raul, Ralph, Karim, Bob, and Henrique.

Then it was time to cut the cake:

Bob Jonkman cuts the cake
Cutting cake is serious business!

And the second shift finishes it off:

The rest of the partygoers
The rest of the partygoers

That’s David, Gord, Bob, Ralph, and Darcy.

Many thanx to Paul for hosting and The Working Centre for the use of St. John’s Kitchen!
