      Some of us still do that - make the content the most important thing on the page, rather than the chrome and the flash and the bling...

      RT @lxo remember when web site designers worked really hard to cut down the amount of nonsense on the web page so it would spend fewer server, network and client resources, and would load faster? those were the days. that was before surveillance capitalism took hold, I suppose.

      Me too! I've been reading things for radio broadcast, but I have no idea what I'm saying... Concentrating too hard on reading ahead of what I'm speaking so I can do the intonation right...

      RT @lxo funny thing, when I read stuff aloud, it's like DMA, it doesn't go through the CPU, and I can't recall what I've heard. I only retain what I read if I read it quietly

Pictures from the KW Ubuntu Release Party

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:

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:

Cutting cake is serious business!

And the second shift finishes it off:

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!

KW Ubuntu Release party, 20 October 2012

Pictures!

Hello Everybodee! I’m happy to announce that we’ll be having the Kitchener-Waterloo Ubuntu Release Party for the version named Quantal Quetzal, v12.10 at St. John’s Kitchen this Saturday.

The best parties always happen in the kitchen. Although we won’t have access to the cooking facilities, bring along some snack food to share, maybe some blank DVDs, and your laptop or netbook.
